THE 9th Biennial 2023 Prom Coast Festival concluded on Sunday.
The tired but elated Committee have had wonderful feed-back so far, from the locals, visitors and business involved, regarding the resounding successes of the broad appeal, community based program of events promoted under the Prom Coast Festival banner and the high attendances at all events, many of which were booked out.
The PCF committee would like to thank everyone who made this happen, including our supporters, sponsors, family and friends.
In all 21 varied events or experiences were held throughout the long weekend, some held over multiple days. The pictures in the Foster Mirror capture some of the special moments from the weekend.

The event was funded by private and company donations. With magnificent cheeses supplied by Berry Creek Cheeses, olives and olive oil by Golden Creek Olives, Wines by Corner Inlet Winery, delicious Prosecco by Peg and Bull, and Cider by Gurneys Cidery.
The event was supported by Danny O’Brien MP, who generously fitted it into a very busy day, and was opened by Deputy Mayor Clare Williams.
