Community News Winter Arts Festival is back again! Applications closing soon for business awards

The City of Casey’s Winter Arts Festival is back and bigger than ever, with a series of events and activities set to kick off in June.

Time is running out to get your applications in for the annual Casey Cardinia Business Awards with nominations due to close on Wednesday 31 May.

As Casey expands, so does the variety of entertainment on offer for this year’s festival. You can visit an art studio during Open Studios Weekend, try your hand at a weaving workshop or take the family to the Old Cheese Factory in Berwick for the School Holiday Wonderland – a three day extravaganza of creative fun for the kids.

The awards aim to recognise and celebrate the best in business across the region.

Be part of the celebration, and immerse yourself in the arts excitement that will take over Casey this winter.

The program is also a valuable business development opportunity with chances to be recognised, receive publicity, network with other local businesses and gain feedback from industry experts.
