Pako Festa After Party

Pako Festa is pretty much known as THE street party of Geelong West, perhaps even Geelong. Last year saw over 100,000 people fill the one kilometre stretch to see dozens of local communities in their national dress. It’s a party combining cultural food, folk dancing, workshops, art exhibitions and more to a massive scale. While Pako Festa runs predominantly during daylight, the party doesn’t have to stop once the sun goes down or as the last parade goers leave the street as the Bannockburn Football and Netball Club have been lucky enough to secure the rights to host the After Party for Pako Festa at Geelong West Hall, and you’re all invited (at minimal cost).
The club invites all lovers of music to see British India fresh off the support slot from the Rolling Stones Australian Tour. The band have been to Geelong a few times now and they’re always ones to put on a good show. The Pako Festa After Party is a great chance to come and see one of Australia’s best original bands with supports from local bands Residual and Velvet Bow, and all for only $35.
This is a significant event for the club and by granting Bannockburn Football and Netball Club the opportunity to present this significant event it shows a real willingness from Pako Festa organisers Diversitat in acknowledging the contribution of local sporting clubs in the community.
Festivities will kick off soon after doors open at 7pm, and with such legends as British India performing there’s no better way to celebrate a great day and what the local community can achieve together.
Tickets are available from Music Workshop (39 Fyans St, South Geelong), the Bannockburn Newsagency (12/6 High Street, Bannockburn) or through Oztix.
When & Where: Geelong West Town Hall – February 28
