The call has gone out for all local businesses with street frontage to join the Coastal Twist Festival window display competition for 2023.

The seven-day festival highlighting LGBTQIA+ arts and culture from across the region attracted more than 9,500 people to the Central Coast last year.

The theme for this year’s festival is Inclusion Means You – a call for all to join in nurturing a culture of respect for a happier, healthier and more welcoming Central Coast.
