Last year's Ukitopia Festival was bubbling with fun.

IT'S hard to believe the year has gone so quickly.

But a good side of that is the Ukitopia Festival.

It's on again this coming weekend.

Are you ready for the most exciting convergence of creativity and community that you will have seen all year?

The props are all made.

Costumes are being finished.

Dress rehearsals are happening.

Finishing touches are made on arts works for Images of Uki and last minute edits on Words of Wollumbin, mind blowingly creative installations tweaked for the art trail.

Bodies are being stretched and ready for dancing, with hearts opening for creative workshop channelling and children's eyes are filling with curiosity and glee.

Teenagers are sharing the cool acts on Facebook, wishes are being contemplated, and families are coming together and friends meeting again.

Have you booked your creative workshops?

To do this, buy your tickets and check out the program at ukitopiaartscollective.com
