It’s full steam ahead for the Pinjarra Festival after the Shire of Murray Council gave it the green light to proceed after uncertainties around the specifics of COVID-19 restrictions.

The Shire council delegated its decision about the festival to the chief executive and Shire president at last month’s council meeting as the State Government had yet to reduce its Level 2 restrictions.

Shire president David Bolt announced the decision to go ahead with the event on Wednesday, noting its importance to the area.

“The LiveLighter Pinjarra Festival is our annual major arts, culture and community event, and one of the largest free events in the Peel region,” Mr Bolt said.

“It’s both a vital opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate life in the Murray, and a hugely important economic activity that helps make our local businesses sustainable for the rest of the year.”

A key event in the Murray calendar, the festival is held in the Edenvale Heritage Precinct and its surrounds, and will host more than 100 market stalls as well as workshops, free children’s activities, and displays.

Mr Bolt encouraged people to set the dates aside to visit Pinjarra and show their support for the area.

“Given the challenges posed by COVID-19 over the past two years, community events like this are vital to help maintain the rich and diverse organisations, businesses and people of the Shire of Murray,” he said.

The Pinjarra Festival will take place on June 4 and 5 from 10am-4pm, barring any major changes to public health advice.
