Fair day is festival centrepiece

The Coastal Twist Festival's "centrepiece" is its Carnie Fair Day from 10am to 5pm on Monday, October 3, at the Recreation Precinct at Umina Oval.

The fair will be "an all-day rainbow of visible diversity and inclusion across abilities, ages, genders, cultures and mindsets", according to festival creative director Ms Glitta Supernova.

It will include "some spectacular headliners, yummy selection of curated international food and a bar hosting our local favourites".

"There will be multiple hubs from YAAS Teen Hang safe spaces to rainbow family zone with a pop-up market showcasing handcrafted to vintage, gourmet to bespoke, quirky to must-haves plus community stalls full of activities, connection and information.

"Our Coastie Carnie Fair Day is where absolutely everyone from near and afar come together to celebrate humanity and connection in a fun and culturally rich day of art, entertainment, food, shopping and pets with a mass outdoor picnic."

Live music will include Electric Fields, Dyan Tai, Shauna Jensen and The Joy Project Choir.

An Hour of Drag Power will feature the Festival headliners and local drag kings and queens.

There will be all-day circus play with Roundabout Circus and storytime with Joyce Maynge and with Wonder Mumma.

Registrations are open for the Puparazzi Pooch Parade at
