Face painting for the kids, stalls, rolling station tours and the launch of the 3CR 40th birthday t-shirt. There'll be something for everyone!

Keep Community Radio

The Federal Budget released on Tuesday 3 May contains cuts of $1.4m in funding that currently keeps community radio stations broadcasting on digital in five capital cities. If we don’t get those funds reinstated, community radio will get left behind on the AM/FM dial. Will you join the national community radio campaign to get these funds back, and ensure a digital future for 3CR and other community stations around the country? Add your voice here to the Keep the Community in Your Radio campaign.
