Heart & Soul Festival

//Heart & Soul Festival

Heart & Soul Festival

The Heart & Soul Festival comes from the heart & soul of this community.  The idea for the festival first came about at one of the welcome to Providence dinners we host for new residents.  An event planning committee was quickly put into place and the first Heart & Soul Festival was held in October, 2016.

Three years later and the community have now hosted the 3rd annual Heart & Soul Festival  November, 2018.

The festival is created by the community for the community with the support of Amex Corporation and Providence Community Group.

It is the community volunteers who make it such a unique and much-loved event and if you would like to be part of the 2019 Heart & Soul event planning committee please email felicity@providencecommunity.com.au

Here are the highlights from Heart & Soul 2018.
