Local talent and community spirit will be celebrated at the Tregear Festival, organised by the Tregear Festival Committee and Blacktown City Council.

Visitors to the free family fun day on Saturday 26 August will enjoy singing, dancing and live music from local artists.
There will also be face painting, showbags, free rides, hot food and market stalls selling a range of wares including clothes, candles and jewellery.

“The Tregear Festival celebrates the community spirit that is alive and thriving in our great district,” said Deputy Mayor of Blacktown City, Councillor Tony Bleasdale. 

“The Tregear community and its story dates back to 1871 when John Kings Lethbridge bought land in this area.

“Mr Lethbridge built a fine homestead, which he called “Tregeare” after his great uncle’s property in England – now known as Tregear. 

“But, the Tregear Festival is much more than about celebrating the local community and its history.

“It also provides a great opportunity to showcase local talent and community pride.”

Performances on the day include; Tregear Public School, Shalvey Community Centre Dance Group, Blacktown City Community Band and Nadia’s Performance Studio.

Cr Bleasdale encouraged everyone to show their support for Tregear at the family fun day. 

“The Tregear Festival is a great day out for the whole family, and best of all – it’s free.

“Tregear may be a small suburb but it knows how to put on a great fun day.”

The festival will be held on Saturday 26 August, 9am to 3pm, at the corner of Aurora Drive and Wilkes Crescent in Tregear.
