An impressive line-up, plus new events and event hubs are set to make The Lakes Festival even bigger and better this November.

Council Unit Manager Community Partnerships, Glenn Cannard said the annual celebration of the Central Coast’s spectacular lakes and waterways would feature 20 separate events across 10 days. 

“The Lakes Festival is our largest and most popular event and shines a light on our region’s lakes and waterways, which are among the largest and most magnificent in Australia,” Mr Cannard said.

“November on the Coast has become synonymous with The Lakes Festival, with attendees entertained, educated and filled to the brim with community, culture, art, music and of course delicious food.

“The headliners for ‘Light Up The Lake’ – Kingswood, Caravana Sun and Hot Potato Band – are not to be missed and don’t forget we’ll literally ‘Light Up The Lake’ with a fireworks display to conclude this special event. 

“Park Feast at Gosford Waterfront will satisfy all your culinary desires and this year we are launching the new Lighthouse Picnic, which is all about music, food and wine at Norah Head Lighthouse.

“If you love to get active – we have stand-up paddle board yoga, kayak tours, Paddle to Pedal, Colour Our Coast (Colour Run), Terrigal Beach Netball Competition, the Bouddi Coastal Run at Killcare and much more.” 

Mayor Lisa Matthews said The Lakes Festival attracts more than 60,000 locals and visitors and delivers a significant economic boost to the Central Coast.

“The Lakes Festival shows the importance of our waterways and injects millions into our  economy,” Mayor Matthews said. 

“There is something for everyone at the Festival so make sure you check it out.” 

Events will be held at 10 key hubs across the Coast including Budgewoi, Long Jetty, Gosford, Toukley, Norah Head, The Entrance, Terrigal, Killcare, Ettalong and Picnic Point. A number of other activities will also take place at Blue Haven, Avoca Beach and Davistown.

The Lakes Festival will run from Friday 8 to Sunday 17 November and is proudly presented by Central Coast Council.
