Sherwood Community Festival | Fun for the Whole Family!

Sherwood Community Festival 2023 for families in Brisbane is back as a single event! 

The Sherwood Community Festival is a not-for-profit family-friendly event, organised entirely by a team of volunteers who give their time willingly to make it happen. And, thanks to the support of the Brisbane City Council and local businesses, and to the hard work of the organisers, this event is free – a gift to the community.

In 2023 the Sherwood Community Festival is held on Saturday 18 November from 3pm – 7pm.
