Celebrate the city at Our Townsville this Sunday

Date published: 4 June 2021

Make sure you don’t miss this Sunday’s Our Townsville event, featuring the best of the city’s expos in one mega-day out.

Our Townsville includes stallholders from Eco Fiesta, Heritage and Disaster Ready days, and the Get Active, Pet and Mentally Healthy expos at Anderson Gardens.

Our Townsville is being produced with joint funding from the Australian and Queensland Governments under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA) Category C Flexible Funding Grants Program.

Community and Cultural Development Committee chairperson Ann-Maree Greaney said Our Townsville was a unique way to bring the community together for a huge day out in one of the city’s best parks.

“There’s no doubt that we have gone through a huge two years, with sustained recovery efforts following the 2019 monsoon and the pandemic. Our Townsville is a chance for us to come together as a community and celebrate our resilience in the face of adversity,” Cr Greaney said.

“I’m proud of our city’s ability to not only bounce back from these difficult circumstances but to come back stronger and to become a more tight-knit, supportive community.

“This Sunday is the perfect way to come together with local businesses, performers, family and friends to celebrate Townsville’s strength, diversity and resilience.”

Cr Greaney said the event was a perfect day out for the whole family.

“Our Townsville has something for everyone, including two stages, bands, food trucks, an Enchanted Glen for children featuring the Underwater Circus show, augmented reality experiences, roving performers, a petting zoo and more,” she said.

“This is a really special event in a spectacular setting. I can’t wait to see just how well it goes.”

The DRFA flexible funding grants are being delivered under the Category C Community Development Program established after the 2019 monsoon trough floods.

Our Townsville runs from 9am to 3pm at Anderson Gardens. Entry is free.
