UPDATE FRIDAY 20 OCTOBER: With rain and thunderstorms predicted for this afternoon and tonight, unfortunately we have had to postpone the Tahmoor Summerfest event. We will let you know when a new date has been decided.
Beginning this holiday period, Wollondilly Council will host a series of eight free community events to be held across the Shire over the next 12 months.
The Summerfest program has been made possible thanks to funding from the NSW Government Resources for Regions program, which has provided funding opportunities to mining communities throughout the state.
Each of the eight family friendly events will feature amusement rides, an outdoor movie screening, food stalls, free face painting, ice cream and donuts and performances by local musicians.
The events aim to support mining impacted communities by enabling residents to reconnect, stimulating the local economy and providing a much needed recreational outlet following the impacts of the pandemic restrictions.
