the 2018 Zig Zag Festival will be the biggest we have held for many years.  Not only will the Entertainment, stalls and children's activities take place in Stirk Park, there will be a new afternoon activation in Haynes Street Kalamunda with craft stalls, food stalls and three new stages.  The Festival Theme this year is IMAGINE.

The Arts are an essential public good that creates a ripple effect of benefits felt throughout our community.  Art provides the unique expression of what it means to be human, and that is fundamental to our nature, and it affects us all.  Community Arts expresses this through all the possibilities of participation in roles, as artists, arts workers, practitioners, teachers, students, critics, supporters, and consumers.  

Zig Zag Community Arts has the support of the City of Kalamunda and will still be working with the Arts community and City residents to continue "to construct a community connected by  creativity".  The feasibility study undertaken last year proved there was a lot of support from the community and the cormmercial sector for a bigger festival extending into the central part of Kalamunda.  Now, with the support of the local business community we will be delivering what we believe will be the largest Zig Zag Festival Kalamunda has ever seen.

If you want to ask questions, to volunteer, or provide ideas, please call Celia 9291-3092.

2018 Act-Belong-Commit Zig Zag Festival

The Festival activities in Stirk Park will continue pretty much as they have for the last 12 years. 

The Zig Zag Sound Shell Stage will have larger acts on the stage and demonstrations in front of the stage, including the ever-popular Zig Zag Gymnastics and the Black Chooks will be on the main stage.

The Rotary Checker-Board Stage will showcase local folk, jazz and world music acoustic acts, and will include Madjitil Moorna Choir.

Children's free activities will be as popular as ever, with children offered the chance to create in any one of dozens of art and craft activities. The hands-on children's activities are among the most popular features of the Festival.  Many locals will proudly tell you they remember making things at a past Zig Zag Festival.

Artisans' Craft  Market has become well known for the quality of crafts and the variety of goods offered.   Food stalls will be the usual mixture of savory and sweet with an ecclectic mix of cuisine.

The Festival opens in Stirk Park at 11am and the Town centre opens from 3pm and the festival will continue in Town until 8pm this year.

There will be three stages along Haynes Street, one at Barber Street, another near the central Mall and at the top of the hill in the Library car park the main stage will host the finale of the Parade and the final headline acts.

The Parade will be different this year, mustering in the park and working its way through to the gumnut round-about and then along Canning Road to Haynes Street at 5:15pm, then in a series of dramatic vignettes the parade will work its way up Haynes Street  making its way to the main stage in the car park of the Library.  The Parade floats have been made and will be operated by primary school students. 

Volunteer call out
Zig Zag Arts is always seeking more volunteers to participate in events, throughout the year, to help us to plan, and to help us to organise.
