King’s Fest 2019
Glorious spring sunshine, lively crowds, fabulous tastes and smells, attractions galore and cheers of fun and laughter across the campus were just some of what made King’s Fest 2019 fabulous.
Hosted by the remarkable Prep School parent community, The King’s School welcomed over 20,000 visitors of all ages, from across Sydney and beyond, to enjoy the King’s Fest weekend.
The weekend kicked off in style with the Gala Opening of King’s 40th Annual Art Show and awarding of the 25th Art Prize. Congratulations to winner McLean Edwards for his piece Dining In, a theatrical and darkly humorous take on figurative painting.
King’s Fest then followed with two jam packed days where there was never a dull moment as families enjoyed morning to night entertainment. With live music setting the mood, guests enjoyed the artisan and growers’ markets, high tea, festival food, bakery stalls and wine and whisky tasting at the new Stables Tasting experience.
Saturday was a particularly great day as families stayed on late to enjoy a King’s Fest first – the twilight fireworks spectacular.
Our youngest visitors stayed occupied all weekend long with the animal nursery, carnival rides, kids bop till you drop disco and the highlight, performances by Nickelodeon’s Paw Patrol and Sesame Street.
Sunday brought in many car enthusiasts as the day featured an All-British Vintage Car Rally, hosting over 1,200 vintage cars from over 100 years of motoring history. It was a spectacle to behold.
King’s Fest was a wonderful weekend filled with community spirt, bringing in those already familiar to the community and welcoming many new comers who were able to see the School and enjoy the King’s experience.
Thank you to all our volunteers for making the King’s Fest weekend such a success and for demonstrating that unique King’s School spirit within our community.
We look forward to seeing everyone at King’s Fest 2020.
