WECA organises events that build and celebrate our local community. These include the Kurilpa Derby--an annual parade that celebrates life lived on wheels since 2007--and the Kurilpa Beggars' Banquet, a community street dinner party held since 2015 on Boundary Street after the Derby. WECA also helps to organise the West End Film Festival, established in 2009 to support grassroots film-makers and showcase great films in West End.

WECA has also co-ordinated or helped to co-ordinate various community forums and discussions, including 'Politics in the Pub' candidate forums for Council, State, and Federal elections as well as community forums relating to local issues, including during the Absoe site (West Village) development plan appeal, and to discuss the future of the Boundary Street precint.
