It provides a day where like-minded people can get together and celebrate their care of the planet and all things living.

There will be entertainers including a street illusionist and juggler, as well as a bouncy castle, children’s yoga, crafts and musicians.

Jen Perry, who is one of the organisers, said the festival was about recognising the part everyone played in taking care of each other, humans and animals alike.

‘We’re so excited to be holding this year’s festival in Fremantle because as a community, Freo really encapsulates the messages of the festival: caring about animals, the planet and each other,’ she said.

‘I hope people begin to think about their role in this world and recognise that absolutely every action we take precipitates a series of events.

‘I hope that people begin to consider the idea of adopting a plant-based lifestyle, if not entirely then perhaps just for breakfast, or one day a week.’

The festival is from 10am to 4pm.
