The Tranquillity at Twilight Fair returns to Ocean Grove in the new year and promises a great evening of music, food and fun.

The family-friendly event will take place on January 6 from 4pm to 9pm at Ocean Grove Park and is a key fundraiser for the park to help keep it in the public’s hands.

Stall manager Bec Abram said 72 food, gift and entertainment stalls would be at the fair, showcasing the region’s community spirit.

“We’ve tried to focus the last couple of years on getting local people that are making different things and there will be a large spectrum of things to suit everybody,” she said.

“It’s a family event, so the kids can come have dinner and entertainment. A bar will also be open, just off to the side of the stage.

“It’s a lovely way to end the day and come off the beach by grabbing something to eat with entertainment… It’s such a nice way for all the community to get together.”

Music coordinator Colleen Maloney said people would be treated to many entertainment shows with several local bands.

“The musical journey begins with the electrifying tunes of Rock band Mr Hyde, setting the stage for a night of dynamic performances,” she said.

“Pop enthusiasts will be delighted by the catchy melodies of Brunette Red Dress, while Country music lovers can kick up their boots to the tunes of Tin Stars.

“Blues enthusiasts are in for a treat as Geoff Achison and the Algo Rhythms showcase their soulful sound, ensuring there’s something for everyone.”

Entry to the Tranquillity at Twilight Fair is $5, and children under 16 can enter the event for free.
