Clovelly Public School P&C Association today announced it will host a festival for the broader community at the school on Saturday 21 October. Running from 12pm to 5pm, Clofest 2023 will be packed with live music and performances, rides and amusements, a food fair, games, creative stalls, and more.

John Richardson, President of Clovelly Public School P&C Association, said: “With Covid

affecting what we’ve been able to do at the school in recent years, the parents and students of

Clovelly Public School were looking to create an event that would allow us to bring together people

from all around the area to celebrate what we have to offer and the phenomenal area we live in.

Clofest 2023 will not only showcase our community’s amazing musical capabilities, but there will be plenty of activities to keep the whole family entertained for the afternoon.”

Funds raised from the event will go towards building a new play area for the school’s students.

Matthew Jackman, Principal at Clovelly Public School, said: “We’re making some significant changes to our school hall and the area around it.

Clofest will be the perfect opportunity to open up the new hall’s doors and welcome the public onto our grounds to see all the talent and community spirit we have at the school. It will also be the chance to raise funds for a dynamic and exciting new space for our students to play in.”

What’s on at Clofest 2023 

Clofest 2023 will feature a Main Stage with performances throughout the afternoon, as well as a silent disco, a dedicated karaoke zone, rides and amusements and more than 25 food, games and craft stalls. There will also be a major raffle prize to be won on the day of a custom-made Clofest 2023 mini mal surfboard and two group surfing lessons at Let’s Go Surfing.

The festival’s Main Stage, which is sponsored by Dance Academy East, will showcase many acts from the school’s vast pool of talent as well as local performers.
