Kensington CommUNITY Festival

Unison wishes to announce that it will no longer be leading and delivering the Kensington CommUNITY Festival.

The Kensington CommUNITY Festival, a special grassroots community event, celebrated cultural diversity within Kensington and has been fostering connections and inclusion since 2008. As part of our focus on keeping the community safe from COVID-19, the festival was cancelled in 2020 and 2021.

During this time, we reviewed the festival because it became unsustainable for Unison and its community partners to deliver a festival experience that would meet our standards and measure up to the previous years. We have enjoyed a great response from the Kensington community, making the decision even harder.

For outcomes of the review, please refer to the Kensington Community Festival – Community Building Opportunities Review document.

As part of the transition process, the Kensington Neighbourhood House will take over the custodianship of the Kensington CommUNITY Festival website.

Unison thanks the community for 11 years of wonderful events and looks forward to building strong local partnerships that increase opportunities for the Kensington community.
