Local talent and community spirit will be celebrated at the annual Tregear Festival.

Visitors to the free family fun day on Saturday 25 August will enjoy singing, 

dancing and live music from local artists.

There will also be face painting, show bags, 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,” Blacktown City Mayor Stephen Bali MP said.

“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.

“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.”

Mayor Bali encouraged everyone to show their community support at the family 

fun day.

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


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

The festival will be held on Saturday 25 August, 9am to 3pm, at Jim Maynard 

Park,corner of Aurora Drive and Wilkes Crescent in Tregear.
