THE Let’s Celebrate Belmont Festival is on throughout November with concerts, movies, tours and a community barbecue to showcase the region.

The festival kicks of with movies at Centenary Park of Friday at 6pm and finishes with the finale on November 26.

Major events include two Movies InThe Park screenings, Jazz in the Park and the festival finale.

There will be adults learn to ride courses, a cultural tour of Belmont, the Jupp Lane Lounge, the Belmonster Book Feast and Bears and Bubs in Belmont.

The festival has an exciting mix of free activities and entertainment including live music, free carnival rides and an international food fest.

City of Belmont chief executive Stuart Cole said this year’s festival would be packed with events.

“As part of the City of Belmont’s commitment to our reconciliation action plan, which also includes holding NAIDOC events, this year the Let’s Celebrate Belmont Festival finale concert will again celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, heritages and traditions and recognise local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples contribution to our community,” he said.

“While the City hosts and manages the major elements of the festival, other businesses, organisations and services that host an event that is in keeping with the philosophy of the festival, are also included to participate in the month-long festival so that the event continues to grow and flourish,” he said.

“With free entry to most events and activities and only a few with a nominal fee, it’s a great opportunity to invite your friends and family from all over the metro area to come along.”

Enjoy a night to remember as the festival draws to a close.
