Global Grooves brings CAR-nival to Car Fest!
WOW, what an amazing time we had at CarFest North 2017!
The Global Grooves team have just returned from a hectic weekend at Car Fest North where we brought a team of artists to create the first ever CAR-nival! Together with a team of volunteers and festival goers we made a giant octopus, an incredible F1 car, 300 flags, over 100 hats, a few mini cars, took our new pet Tyrone out for his first public walk we AND delivered a series of visual, dance and drumming workshops!
On the Sunday, we brought everything we’d made together and teamed up with Cabasa Carnival Arts to join the CAR-nival parade down the track! We even met with Car Fest King, Chris Evans half way down the track.. and again on the main stage!
We can’t wait to do it all again and more at Carfest South on 24th – 27th August.
If you’d like to join us, we’re looking for another team of fabulous volunteers to support our big makes and CAR-nival parade. You’ll also get a free festival ticket* !
Please email [email protected] if you’re interested in joining us.
*Please note you’ll be expected to work with us for up to 6 hours per daytime. Outside of this time, you’ll be free to enjoy the festival. You’ll also receive a free meal per day, opportunity to shadow leading Carnival artists and improve your skills in workshop management.
Thanks to the incredible Global Grooves team for all their hard work and energy, our wonderful volunteers and the CarFest team. See you in the South!
