The Glenside Lions Arts Show and competition is held in the City of Burnside Ballroom and presented by the Lions Club of Glenside.
The Art Show is an annual event, held at the Burnside Ballroom and has been running most successfully for over 27 years. A wide selection of over 450 works of art will be on display and once again the club looks forward to strong support from the local and wider community.
Overall this event has raised approximately $350,000 for community projects in the Burnside Council area as well as outside groups providing services to the wider community. The funds raised come from commissions on sold works of art as well as entrance fees, opening night tickets and raffles and this year we are supporting Catherine House with 100% of everything we earn.
