Stallholders invited to apply for Childers Festival sites

20 Mar 2017

The call has gone out to stallholders locally and across the State to be a part of Childers Festival 2017.

Each year the last weekend of July sees a major transformation overtake the rural community of Childers as a crowd in excess of 40,000 throngs through the Festival site enjoying the sights, sounds and flavours of this iconic event.

Community Services portfolio spokesperson with Bundaberg Regional Council, Cr Judy Peters said the massive festival crowd presented a marketing opportunity too good to miss.

“The Childers Festival is a sensational venue for stallholders to put products on display as it is one of Queensland’s biggest annual events.

“We’re looking for market stalls, food vendors, boutique wineries or any product promotion that meets the criteria to be displayed at this family friendly event.

“If you think you have something special to bring to this year’s Childers Festival make sure you lodge an expression of interest form before the closing date of March 31.”

Cr Peters said this year’s Childers Festival will be held from Thursday, July 27 to Sunday, July 30 and has been made possible thanks to funding from Tourism and Events Queensland.
