CF 2017 - Co-Chairperson's Address - Mark Burfield

On behalf of the Children’s Festival Organisation, I convey a very warm welcome to all of you attending today’s event.

Children’s Festival 2017 is the fourth consecutive annual festival to be held in Sydney city, and the third in First Fleet Park. Today’s Festival has been postponed from 19 March due to inclement weather before and on that day. (If held on that day, the event would have once again been taking place close to “Harmony Day”, in the State’s “Multicultural March”, and as part of the City of Sydney’s “Living in Harmony Festival”).

The Children’s Festival Organisation has also been running consecutive annual Festivals in Bankstown for the last eighteen years.

The vision of the Children’s Festival Organisation is that these Children’s Festivals can extend to all States and regions.

A unique feature of these Children’s Festivals is that they are truly community-based, grassroots and multicultural events bringing together a wide range of volunteers and participants in a spirit of goodwill under the theme, “Play Together and Live in Harmony”.

The Children’s Festival Organisation is deeply grateful to the financial, in kind and other assistance from numerous supporters and volunteers as identified in this program booklet.

Please enjoy the day!

We would like to thank our sponsors this year for their continual generous support for the Children’s Festival. Without your financial or in-kind donations, the Children’s Festival would not be able to continue and flourish like it has for so many years. We hope that it will continue to flourish for many more years to come, with your tremendous support.
