Sarah has been involved with Fairbridge Festival for three years, she now works as its Street Team Coordinator. Sarah absolutely adores the festival, holding it responsible for bringing her family, including her extended family, closer together.
For Sarah, Fairbridge Festival is a big annual family event. She says, her family travelling south to Bridgetown, Nannup, Pemberton, Margaret River and Augusta for the pre-festival work, as well as the festival itself, is greatly enjoyed. Her family and fellow festival crew members coming together to create this weekend is a feeling she describes as ‘magical’.
At the festival, Sarah loves the chai van, the music, the community, Fairbridge Village and the amazing workshops that make the festival as diverse and unique as it is. Sarah believes that the concentration of creativity and beauty of the festival and the village are integral to making the festival special.
Sarah’s best memories of Fairbridge Festival are walking around at dusk, the dust flying around and the sun setting. Sarah calls it “the perfect scene,” and looks forward to it every year.
Additionally, Sarah also has fond memories of Uptown Brown, the one-man-band who performed last year. She said he was very, very good.
Sarah says that Fairbridge Festival “inspires life”.
Last year she was inspired by the festival and the community to conduct a yoga and sound meditation session. She described it as an incredible experience and would love to do it again.
This year, Sarah is looking forward to returning to the festival and celebrating its 25th anniversary with her son, partner and extended family.
