The 2015 Festival of Mosman held from 3 to 13 September was a great success. About 28,000 people attended over 40 events showcasing Mosman’s harbour lifestyle, community, natural environment and innovative art experiences including a Whale Dreaming Ceremony, Concert in the Park, Moonlight Movies, poetry readings on Sydney Ferries, pop-up sculptures and performances and the return of much loved community events such as Pet’s Day Out.

See photos and video highlights.

The Festival of Mosman was organised by Mosman Council with considerable input, support and assistance from local community groups, event organisers and volunteers. Key supporters included Festival sponsor Kimbriki Environmental Enterprises and media partner Mosman Daily.

The next Festival of Mosman is proposed for 2017. Subscribe to the Festival of Mosman e-newsletter to receive updates.
