Locals and visitors will continue to be able to enjoy a stunning variety of local flora after three organisations have agreed to collaborate on Esperance’s annual wildflower festival.

The Anglican Parish Council entered into a partnership with the Esperance Wildflower Society and Esperance Community Arts, sharing coordination of the festival across the three groups.

The parish will continue to provide the venues and manage catering, and the children’s art display and competition will still be exhibited in the church.

The name of the festival has changed from the Esperance Anglican Wildflower Festival to the Esperance Wildflower Festival.

A wide range of local community groups will be invited to be involved in the 2019 festival, which will be held from September 24 to September 28 in 2019.

The Esperance Wildflower Society will continue to manage the exhibition and will provide leadership on the educational aspects. 

Esperance Community Arts will assist with marketing and promotion and will coordinate arts-related components.

The festival attracts more than 1000 people annually and involves the work of about 100 volunteers.
