Event Cancellations

The State Government has extended Victoria's State of Emergency until 22 June 2020. The Government has also banned large gatherings and asked Victorians to avoid all non-essential gatherings of any size. For this reason all Council events, workshops and activities have been cancelled until further notice.

This includes:

  • Cinema in the Square
  • Keysborough’s Big Picnic
  • Sustainability Festival
  • Dandy-Con
  • Drum Theatre shows
  • Youth Services events
