In March 2018 Western Riverina Arts hosted "Mini Music Fest" a live and relaxed music event at Bidgee Studio (Hape Kiddle's studio) in Griffith. The event gave local musicians and singers the opportunity to perform original songs in front of a live audience. It also gave members of the local community the opportunity to sample the talent of local performers and to experience a relaxed outdoor event.
The Mini Music Festival included some well-known and emerging Griffith talent. The Flowering Zucchini were there selling gourmet food and drinks, and artist Hape Kiddle gave tours of his studio. The event was well attended by approximately 60 people who brought along chairs, picnics and eskies to enjoy the delightful afternoon.
