This year's theme for the much-loved Warrandyte Festival is Coming Together. There is a jam packed two day program, running over Friday 18 and Saturday 19 March.

"The Festival Committee has done an incredible job in organising the Festival and bringing the community back together in a COVID-safe way", says Manningham's Mayor Cr Michelle Kleinert.

The Festival is primarily funded by Community Grants through Manningham and Nillumbik Councils'.

The Festival is famous for its stages where local artists showcase their music, taking the opportunity to perform in front of the community crowd. The very popular Battle of the Bands will be on the main stage on Saturday afternoon.

"We have outstanding local talent here in Manningham. Everyone is excited to see what our artists have been working on over the past couple of years. But more importantly, they are excited to come along and be part of the festivities", says Cr Kleinert, the sponsor of this year's competition.

The 2022 Festival Program includes the Film Feast, Street Parade and activities for children of all ages.
