Rotary Park will come to life on Saturday, October 22 for the sixth annual Kurri Kurri Community Festival.
The festival will start at 11am and runs through to 9pm, with a free screening of the children’s favourite Zootopia on sunset.
People are encouraged to dress up for the occasion, with prizes for best costume.
If it rains on Saturday the movie will be shown at Kurri Kurri Workers Club.
There will be more than 40 market stalls, food, drinks, arts and crafts, children’s rides and live entertainment throughout the day including Irish dancers, line dancers, performances from schools and dance schools, and popular local band Gasoline Halos.
The festival was established in 2011 as a celebration of community spirit and pride.
Festival coordinator Carol Doherty said the event has gone from strength to strength each year, and that a crowd of about 1000 people is expected to attend.
Mrs Doherty said the festival will be a great day of entertainment for the whole family.
“All you need to bring with you are seats and blankets to sit on,” she said.
“This is going to be a day not to be missed for the visitors and the local community. Everyone is welcome.”
