Come along with the family from 11am and enjoy a wonderful range of live music performances by teenagers, soloists, groups and bands. The musicians will perform a range of traditional and contemporary music genres and are sure to entice crowds throughout the day. There will be 7 live music locations, with convenient outdoor cafes, so you can stop by for a quick coffee or a leisurely brunch.
Complementing the musicians are talented street theatre performers who are sure to dazzle audiences with circus tricks, magic acts, dance routines and comedy.
