Arts and Culture

We run a variety of arts and culture events and initiatives each year. Our aim is to support local initiatives, working collaboratively with the community to celebrate and bring people together through arts and culture.

Bayside Arts Festival

The Bayside Arts Festival is a month-long festival promoting, engaging and celebrating our creative community.

We will not be holding this event in 2021 due to COVID-19 restrictions.
