Festival on Forbes
The Festival on Forbes is SCEGGS Darlinghurst’s biennial Fair, and is one of the major community events organised by the SCEGGS Parents’ and Friends’ Association (P&F). In addition to being a friend-raiser the Festival is one of the school’s major fundraising events, with all funds raised in 2017 being directed to the SCEGGS Scholarship Fund. The Fabulous Festival on Forbes will take place on Sunday 20 August, 2017 from 10.00am to 3.00pm.
This Fair acknowledges the importance of tradition, whilst also acknowledging the importance of change and innovation. This Fair will be the funniest, foodiest, funkiest, familyest, friendliest, fundraisingest Fair ever!
Enjoy gourmet menus created by renowned chefs, artisan street food and a Greek Taverna complete with ouzo bar and bouzouki player. Two licensed bars and freshly brewed barista coffee by Rossini. The foodie theme continues with dessert including home baked treats and Gelato Messina. Take some time out and enjoy the lovingly prepared Devonshire Tea. No Fair would be complete without a Candy Bar, fairy floss and ice cold slushies.
We have planned fun activities and a great variety of entertainment for all ages. Test your skills on the obstacle course, life-size snooker table, football and league dart boards and sideshow alley games - with great prizes to be won! Dunking the teacher is a prize in itself. Start practising! For the younger crowd and those young at heart, we have jumping castles, a petting zoo, craft activities and face painting. Don't miss the photo booths - fun for family and friends alike.
The market stalls will complement our home-grown offerings: chic Vintage, New York Deli inspired Gourmet Pantry and a retro bookshop with a few extras - making it the perfect day out for SCEGGS families and the wider community.
Interactive art installations have been professionally curated and are not to be missed! They will be throughout the Fair and will evolve during the day. The SCEGGS photographic art competitions are open to both junior and senior girls with major prizes to be won. The winning entries will also feature in future SCEGGS publications and promotional materials.
All of this will fun be set within the paradigm of an outdoor disco - come and dance the day away!
There will be continual updates on the Festival.
