Fort Fest 2018

Fort Fest 2018


FortFest is here again!

The Fort Street Festival has a rich and long tradition. Originally known as the ‘Fort Street School Bazaar’, it was started by students in 1897 to raise funds for the school. The SRC (Student Representative Council) and students still maintain a vital role in the organising of this bi-annual event.

Fort Fest is our MAJOR COMMUNITY and FUNDRAISING EVENT and we welcome all families to get involved. The day is non-stop FUN with Student Stalls, A Talent Quest, Fest Stalls – second hand books, plants, trash and treasure, International food to thrill your taste buds and musical entertainment from our talented IMP and visiting bands.

There are lots of different ways to support the Fest…

Volunteer your time sign up here:
