“Wagga Wagga is a diverse community and the concept behind Fresh is to bring people of different ages, backgrounds and cultures together, especially after the tough two years that our community has endured,” Ms Summerhayes said.

“There really is something for everyone at Fresh and this year’s program is bursting with free and affordable highlights, ranging from live music to ancient and contemporary crafts, guided wellbeing outdoor experiences, and more.”
