Kempton Festival 2022

 

Each year the Kempton Festival Committee try to find avenues to put funds raised back in to the Kempton community.  The Committee are thrilled with the success of this year's festival and have agreed to allocate funds to the community projects outlined below.  Thank you to all the volunteers who helped make the Festival run smoothly, and a very big thanks to everyone who attended and made it such a successful day.

Australia Day Award recognition for the Kempton Festival.

The Green Ponds Progress Association and the Festival Sub-Committee are thrilled that the 2020 Festival has been selected as the recipient of the Southern Midlands Council Australia Day "Community Event of the Year" award.  This is a great achievement for the small group of hard working volunteers who make this happen every year.

The Progress Association would specifically like to recognise John Hay who has recently retired form the Association and Committee and his wife Sandra who sadly passed away late last year.  John and Sandra have been involved with the Festival over a number of years and Sandra was the brains behind the lamb cook-off and getting Sam Kekovich (Australian Lambassador) to the festival. She will be very much missed.
