Enliven Music Festival, will be held on 2nd April, and is bringing two of Australia’s top rated award winning artists, Jon Stevens, with the INXS and Noiseworks Collection and Eskimo Joe, sharing the stage with Country Rock up and comer, James Johnston, along with The Robbie Mortimer Band and Clancy Pye. Phat Brass, a fresh funk-pop style of brass band, rounds up the line-up for the much-anticipated event.
Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW Paul Toole said: “This is an event like no other, with mass balloon launches to entertain crowds throughout the day and the Cabonne Community Balloon Glow event, featuring market stalls, live music and a special choreographed balloon show.”
Along with the exciting program of events that are already locked in, the Canowindra Business and Progress Association is also full steam ahead in planning the 100 mile dinner, which will bring back the dining experience in the Main Street.
“We are really thrilled at the prospect of bringing a truly exquisite and top shelf dining experience to Gaskill Street, and provide the community an opportunity to participate and show off the beautiful heritage of the main street,” Chair of the CBPA, Anotonio D’Onise said.
