Since 2008 the Camden Haven Chamber of Commerce and volunteers have loved bringing the Slice of Haven festival to our community.
It is a celebration of homegrown talent and gourmet food. Moreover, the festival is a source of community pride. People connect over a picnic blanket, music, food and drink. Visitors come and soak up a slice of the Camden Haven way of life while we locals pinch ourselves and think, how lucky are we to live here?
We, the organisers, had our community's safety at heart as we make the decision to postpone Slice of Haven 2020, set down for May 24.
We are disappointed for our sponsors, stallholders, our volunteers, and visitors because together we have created an event which thousands of people love dearly.
The health and safety of all in our Slice family come first. We plan to bring Slice back bigger and better when it is safe to do so.
We sincerely appreciate your support of Slice of Haven.
We wish the best health for you, your organisation, family and friends.
Getting to Slice
Slice of Haven is held on the foreshore of the Camden Haven River on the corner of Seymour and McLennan Streets Laurieton.
Parking is available in Bruce Porter Reserve (manned by SES) or surrounding streets.
Some seating is provided, but you are encouraged to bring a picnic blanket and chairs to take advantage of the open spaces and shade under trees.
Entry is via gold coin donation. The proceeds are donated to the volunteer groups who assist the committee in the set-up, pack-up and event operations on the day. Recipients include Camden Haven Surf Lifesaving Club, Camden Haven Girl Guides, State Emergency Service, and a local sporting club which helps before and after the event.
Your pets may be part of your family - entirely well-behaved and totally adorable - however, they are not permitted at Slice of Haven.
This rule follows the guidelines set by the NSW Office of Local Government's Responsible Pet Ownership, Companion Animals Act:
All dogs, apart from police and corrective service dogs and genuine assistance dogs, are banned from:
within 10 metres of a children's play area
within 10 metres of food preparation or consumption areas, except cafes or restaurants whose owners permit dogs (not restricted dogs or declared dangerous dogs) in their outdoor dining areas
recreation areas where dogs are prohibited
public bathing areas where dogs are prohibited
child care centres
shopping centres where dogs are prohibited
wildlife protection areas.
Cats are banned from public areas where food is produced or consumed and from wildlife protection areas. There is considerable concern in the community about cats injuring or killing native wildlife.
Although the Companion Animals Act 1998 does not require you to contain your cat on your premises, you should consider doing so for your cat's own safety and for the protection of native wildlife.
You can contain your cat on your premises by keeping it indoors or by building a cat enclosure on your premises.
