This relaxed and inclusive celebration of all things Leederville will fill the township's streets with food, music, fashion, art and children's entertainment! Watch for what's in alleyways and hidden nooks of Leederville. The streets will be closed off to traffic during the festival which culminates in the turning on of the Leederville street christmas lights at 7:45pm at the corner of Oxford and Newcastle Streets!
A fantastic opportunity for the community in and around Leederville and the wider metropolitan Perth to come and soak up the celebration in one of Perth's great cultural assets, Leederville!
