What is the Festival of Wonder?
The Festival of Wonder is back! After the success of last year, we hope to build on and continue our exploration of all that is good and wonderous around us.
The Festival of Wonder is a festival offering a wondrous array of spectacles, activities and spaces designed to engage, enrich and inspire wonder. This year we will explore our understanding of wonder in powerful new ways with the wonder of peace being a central theme. So, whether you enjoy the wonder of the natural world, the wonder of words, imagination, creativity, song or dance we hope you will find something to again brighten, lighten and inspire.
There will be music, aerial and circus performance, workshops, sounds, silence and reflective space, as well as food, warmth and community.
The intention of the Festival of Wonder is to inspire a sense of wonder and hope for the more beautiful world that our hearts know is possible and a refuge from the challenges of our current world.
Visitors to the festival can expect to walk away with a lightness of heart, a smile on their face and just maybe sufficiently inspired to help be a part of creating that more beautiful world of wonder and peace.
The majority of events and activities are FREE to attend and open to all ages.
What makes you wonder?
What stops you in your tracks in a moment of WOW? What sparks your imagination to run and spurs you to act? Whether it’s community or justice, music or art, beauty or magic, sounds or silence, the Festival of Wonder invites you to step back take time and wonder.
