9 May – Grand Central Shopping Centre

Next year’s theme is Mother.  This year’s parade was such a success, we can’t wait to see the designs that will be on display!  We want to see reloved, remade, reused, recycled, reworked, refashioned, recast, revised, redone, reforged, refitted … you get the picture!  To link in with Wordfest’s 2024 theme of Script to Stage, we will be asking that each garment has a story/script to accompany it on stage.  To assist with covering costs, there will be a small fee of $5 per garment entry.
