The Western Port Festival is an apolitical, not for profit community group. As volunteers, our only income is the mountain of pride we earn from all the smiles on peoples faces we see during the festival weekend.

For those who are unaware, our focus is to provide local community groups a platform to showcase their organisation, build their membership base and potentially raise funds for their group or nominated charities. The Western Port Community means everything to us and we're grateful to facilitate the opportunities the Western Port Festival brings.

Our volunteers are our unsung heroes and without their time and dedication we simply wouldn't have the great community festival that we have.

One of our most active volunteers and former President of the Western Port Festival, Steve Hosking will be running in the coming State Election for the seat of Hastings.

Steve is the sort of person who would give you the shirt off his own back, a true community leader who's put in countless hours over the last few years bringing the community together for our community event.

Irrespective of political preferences, we'd like to extend a sincere thank you to Steve for everything he's done for us and wish him all the very best for next weeks State Election.
