Activate Gabbin Festival 2021

Activate is extremely excited to announce our return to Gabbin for our SEVENTH consecutive year and our biggest year yet!
Join us on the weekend of July 2nd to July 4th to help us plant a record 85,000 native seedlings to rejuvenate degraded farmland in the Wheatbelt. This fun-filled weekend will consist of tree planting, live music and DJs, dancing, workshops, kids activities, community connection and education.
This is a drug free and family friendly event open to all ages, where everyone is welcome to come and help us restore habitat & biodiversity and reconnect to the bush landscape!
WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE EVENT
At the event we will be hard at work planting trees during the day, with the motivation of DJ’s and musicians to inspire us along in the field. At night things really come to life with a diverse range of musical acts to listen and dance to. All organic meals are provided while you enjoy serenity under the stars and warmth by the bonfire. You will be encouraged to have some great conversations, play some music if you’re inclined, and make friends with like-minded people. This is a community effort where everyone is included and part of the Activate team.
Through the spirit of celebration and the physical planting of the trees themselves, Activate events get you back in touch with Mother Nature. We aim to encourage a hardworking and ethical community of people that support our environmental and societal causes. This is an opportunity to help repair our environment whilst meeting new friends and experiencing some of the rawest West Australian Bush festivals brought to you by members of the legendary Activate team.
