THE Town of Vincent has approved a plan to hold a street festival in February or March next year.

Called the Oxford Street Festival, the event is expected to draw a crowd of at least 5,000 in its first year.

Council has matched its approval with sponsorship of cash and kind worth $21,000.

Vincent Mayor John Hyde said he was delighted a local community group had come up with a project the whole community could take part in.

“The Leederville Community Action Group’s proposal includes two stages, one for main acts and a smaller one incorporating an area for children and young family entertainment,” Mr Hyde said.

“The group also intends to have a variety of stalls and street theatre taking place along Oxford Street throughout the festival.

“We’ll also have our own internal working group with representatives from the organising committee to deal with any issues in the lead-up as they arise.

“This process has worked well for other major events in Vincent, such as the annual Hyde Park Festival.”
