Unfortunately the festival committee has made the difficult decision to cancel Festival of Smiles this Sunday.
The vision of the festival was for people of all ages and abilities to come together and strengthen our community through a shared experience.
Due to inclement weather leading up to, and on the day, the committee were concerned of the impact this would have with people’s experiences on the day and the accessibility of the event. Tascare Society for Children
