Encouraging, recognising, and celebrating volunteerism in the Shoalhaven region – our real Shoalhaven Superheroes!
The Shoalhaven Superheroes Festival (SSF) is a pioneering annual community series of different fundraising events and activities which celebrate pop culture. Superheroes Events Limited (SEL) is a volunteer not-for-profit company, which is the organiser of the SSF.
SEL was established in November 2014 with the mission to make the Shoalhaven the Superheroes Capital of NSW / Australia, through the establishment of pop culture events and fictional pop culture POP Worlds.
The first fictional POP World in 2014 was BerryPOP, the Shire of Berry Potter. All SSF events and activities held in the Shire of Berry potter are Harry Potter theme related.
All SSF events and activities are fundraising for the Superheroes Community Care River Retreat (River Retreat) at River Road, Shoalhaven Heads, NSW. The River Retreat will provide short-stay accommodation for families with chronically ill kids and/or families requiring benevolent assistance.
The first event held was the BerryPOP Pop Culture Charity Expo in December 2014. Since then, the SSF has grown to staging events both within and outside the Shoalhaven region. SSF pop culture fundraising events now include;
- Shoalhaven Pop CulturePOP – ShoalPOP Pop Culture Charity Expo
