What is Bathurst Summerfest?

Bathurst Summerfest is an annual week of free fun and activities for the whole family! It consists of Rugrats for younger kids, Triple S (Super Summer Slam) for Primary School kids, and Switch for High School students. Bathurst Summerfest is held at the Bathurst Showground.

Who runs Bathurst Summerfest?

Bathurst Summerfest is run by Christians from Bathurst Presbyterian Church, Bathurst Evangelical Church, Bathurst Baptist Church, and a team of young people from Churches across NSW.
All the people working with children have completed the mandatory checks required by law.

Why do we do it?

We want to give everyone in Bathurst the opportunity to hear the GOOD NEWS ABOUT JESUS! We believe God wants everyone to know him and be friends with him. Knowing God can change your life and give you hope for the future.
