KINGSTON’S Harvest Festival will not bloom this year but the show will go on in the new name of Carrum Beats and Eats.

Council has decided to mark the “music, food and fun” festival’s return to Carrum in May with a name change. The festival was held in Chelsea for the past two years during construction works on the Carrum Family and Children’s Centre.

“The community was clear they wanted to host an event in Carrum and we wanted to showcase the local atmosphere in the event’s new name,” Kingston mayor Cr Steve Staikos said.

“We are proud to be back at Roy Dore and although it’s now a smaller space we’ll be presenting a great line-up of music across two stages including headline performers Wilbur Wilde and the Trouble Makers. The community can also enjoy roving performers, food and drink stalls, all-day entertainment and plenty of family-friendly activities to keep the kids happy.

“We’re looking forward to a fantastic day back at Roy Dore Reserve to bring our community together for a day of music, food and fun.”

Carrum Beats and Eats will be held at Carrum’s Roy Dore Reserve on Saturday 12 May, midday-9.30pm. Entry is $2 per person, $5 for families. No BYO alcohol or animals allowed.
