Esso Community Festival
Esso Australia is proud to partner with Gippsland Music & Sound to create a family-friendly day celebrating local vendors and home-grown talent. Featuring live music from The Voice 2021 finalist Mick Harrington, Harry Hookey, The Vibe, Danny Spencer, and Gippsland Live finalists. The event will extend from the deck at Gippsland Music & Sound in the Desailly Street car park, as well as throughout the Sale CBD. There will be a number of local food, beverage and business vendors’ onsite to purchase from throughout the day, concluding with an electrifying Propellor Battle of the Bands competition.
The Esso Community Festival will run from 10:00am to 4:00pm, based throughout the Sale CBD on Saturday December 4th, 2021.
“The last two years have been incredibly tough and has taken a toll on every local business. Activating our business district across open spaces like this with the assistance of companies such as Esso, help us showcase local businesses and talent, allowing us to rebuild after suffering through horrific bushfires, tough COVID-restrictions and torrential floods,” stated Sale Business and Tourism Association member Julian McIvor.
Andrew Murphy, Public and Government Affairs Manager for Esso Australia noted how great it was to finally gather the community. “It’s wonderful to be able to bring the community together, to enjoy a fun-filled day after what has been a truly-trying time. With Christmas coming up, it will be great to see the community out-and-about as COVID-restrictions ease and we work towards a sense of normality.”
“Operating within the Gippsland community for over five decades we are proud to support communities close to our operations,” he continued. “We encourage ExxonMobil employees that work within the Gippsland region to head out and celebrate the unity between residents of this great community.”
