Our 
Story

Sunbury is famous for festivals... From 1972 to 1974 Sunbury was host to Australia's most successful Pop / Rock Festival ever.

2021 will be the Sunbury Community Festival's 45th year in serving the Community by providing a free 2 day festival full of fun and entertainment for all ages. The Sunbury Community is well supported by local traders, businesses and the community.

 

The Sunbury community festival "SunFest" (originally Sunbury Fair) first started in 1977 by a group of Sunbury volunteers.  After Sunbury Pop / Rock Festival finished in 1975, Sunbury was left with a void and after one year has lapsed with no festival the Sunbury Fair began.

The group of volunteers wanted to bring to Sunbury an old fashioned community fair free of charge to the people of Sunbury and its surrounds.  Since this first event the festival has grown to Sunbury's largest event.

With many thousands of people having attended out last couple of festivals, we will again offer great attractions that no other festival or show can offer in the Sunbury Region.

Attraction include amusement rides and carival games, The Grand Street Parade (on Saturday), CFA Torchlight Procession (Saturday evening), FIREWORKS, live local bands, roving etertainers, Kid's entertainment, Sunbury Idol, and Sunbury Has Talent, and a lot more.
