Youth of all ages and interests will find something fun to do at Youth Fest 2023, set to be held next week.

From noon til 4pm on Wednesday 19 April, McLean Sports Precinct will be alive with youthful energy, thanks to a busy program pulled together with support from the Shire of Denmark, Department of Communities and the Denmark Local Drug Action Group.

Free skateboarding and mountain biking clinics and competitions will be complemented by anime drawing workshops, a teen yoga class, a photo booth and a listening post giving youth the chance to meet their local Elected Members.
