The Rotary Hyde Park Festival

The Rotary Hyde Park Festival is an annual event organised by the Rotary Club of North Perth. The festival, which has been held in March for the past 35 years, is one of Perth’s oldest and most loved charity events.

Held in Perth’s iconic Hyde Park, entry to the festival is free. There is always fabulous food, arts and crafts, live entertainment, sideshow rides, show bags, market stalls, a car show, bands and fantastic buskers. The Salvation Army Band are regular performers. There are fashion parades featuring local designers and businesses as well as gins from a local distillery and beers from local breweries.

The event is supported by the City of Vincent, Lotterywest and Bendigo North Perth Community Bank. One hundred per cent of the profits go to local community projects. All proceeds from the festival support community projects, including the main beneficiary, the Path of Hope, which provides safety and empowerment to women and children escaping domestic violence.

Unfortunately, this year’s festival had to be cancelled due to COVID-19 risks; however, they will be back bigger than ever in March 2023.
