Experience the Village Vibe at the Coast’s only true village centre. Deb Caruso previews what’s on offer.
Thanks to savvy business owners that support the Peregian Beach Business Association (PBBA), the Village Vibes Festival is back with a vengeance. First held in 2019, just weeks after bushfires threatened the community and as an evolution of the Food & Fashion Fiesta, Village Vibes celebrates the diverse range of businesses and people that make up this thriving community.
The Village Vibes Easter Festival will offer the chance to experience the best The Village has to offer with a focus on art, food, culture and wellness. From ethical fashion and design to street art, live music, wellness and a dedicated Feast and Forage trail, there will be something for everyone.
Held over a two-week period throughout the Easter school holidays, Village Vibes will offer a full immersion of all the best bits of this beachy enclave.
Peregian Beach Hotel owner, PBBA committee member and one of the event organisers, Kylie Plunkett says the Village Vibes Festival is a great chance to showcase to the community just what is on offer in The Village at Peregian Beach.
“Just like the village on a regular day, the Village Vibes festival will have a strong family-friendly focus – and fur babies are always welcome,” shared Kylie.
With details still being finalised and more events to be announced, the key themes will be around sustainability, exploring Indigenous culture and foraging for food, fashion, homewares and art.
Village Vibes starts Thursday 1 April and runs for two weeks until 18 April 2021.
