About the event
On Friday 25th March, our community will come together to celebrate our uniqueness and wonder with a block party guaranteed to bring the magic. Sunshine Heights Primary School will be transformed into a universe filled with food trucks, performances and entertainment, experiences, creativity, a makers stands and community service booths.
On the main stage, you'll find our legendary MC - Greg Perkins from Big Childcare - bringing the hype. He'll be joined by guest speakers - the Mayor of Brimbank, Katie Hall MP and Sunshine Heights PS Principal David Cocks. The festival will launch with a traditional smoking ceremony, Welcome to Country and didge performance by a Wurundjeri elder, before launching into hours of endless entertainment featuring:
- Our very own Sunshine Heights PS students flash mobbing en masse for Harmony Day
- Local Sunshine sisters, 2ndGlance
- Florence's community choir
- Sunshine College's Band
- Inkrewsive Hip Hop Crew
- DJ Joey Lightbulb
- And a very special guest appearance from Big Childcare's Mike the Monster
Around the stage, you'll find roving performances from Balloonatic Bruce, Princess on Skates, Ricky Resilient and Big Childcare's Mike the Monster.
But that's not all - there'll be interactive art installations, a whole lotta games from Big Active, a compliments stand to bring the good feels, a photo booth so the memories will never fade, some epic inflatables, art making and face painting too! And we'll have LIVE FM broadcasting live with student-created and driven content that will capture all the good vibes.
Did we mention there'd be a lot of food? We've got a stellar line up of local foodies ready to serve up a delicious assault on your tastebuds. Our food truck line up includes -
- Ama's Delights
- Sweet Forbidden Journey
- Mr Fresh Truck's Gelati & Icecream
- Kilted Haggis
- Flaming Wheels Taste of Malaysia
- Bboy's Filipino BBQ

We can't have you eating in silence though, can we? Don't worry about that, we've got DJ Nashuan serving up the groovalicious beats while you eat. There'll be plenty of space at the oval for you to get the groove in your heart and your feet, or take a seat at the chill zone.
There'll be a Makers Space brimming with local makers, creators and artisans selling it all - diversity books, sensory toys, handmade facial products and scents, jewellery and tees, crocheted buntings, flowers and much more! We'll even have our very own merch stand there too, so you can snare yourself a Know, Show, Grow tee to mark the memories.
Most important of all, there'll be an abundance of community services at the Community Space so you can come find out what supports are out there, how you access them and what a community support eco-system looks like.
We can't wait to journey with you as you know yourself, show yourself and grow yourself.
