Bayside Council calls for Greek Festival to return to Brighton-Le-Sands in 2022


The Leader has reported today that Bayside Council will work towards bringing the Greek Festival back to Brighton-Le-Sands in 2022.

This news comes after a Council meeting last night where Councillor Bill Saravinovski asked for “in principle support” for the return of the Greek Festival.

According to Councillor Saravinovski, the festival organisers have approached the Council and said “they want to bring it back to Brighton.”

“They are putting in a submission to the State Government for funding and it’s a great opportunity,” the Councillor told the local newspaper.

“When the festival was in Brighton it had a buzz. It was a real cultural festival.”

Councillor Saravinovski’s call was unanimously supported by the council.
