On Saturday November 11 Margaret Timpson Park was transformed into a giant fairground as around 10,000 people attended this year's Belconnen Festival. The event also celebrated Belconnen's 40th Birthday with Chief Minister Jon Stanhope cutting the Big Birthday Cake.

Local performers including singer songwriter Ashleigh Mannix, country rock band The Fuelers, indigenous singer Johnny Huckle and Tanzanian musician Gus Mpofu with his band Hoza, performed on the main stage while local dance groups entertained the crowd on the stage in the middle of the park.
