SECURE YOUR STALL NOW! ENTRIES CLOSE 8th OF OCTOBER The third Taste Coleambally - Food and Farm Festival will be held on the weekend of 21-23rd October 2016 and we are inviting you to come join the line up!
Saturday see a general market set up to sit alongside our events, while Sunday's main event will draw the main crowds.
The Festival Trail on Sunday is interactive, colourful and vividly tells the Farm, Food, Fibre Story in a unique, interesting and personal manner, featuring our Guest Foodie, Rodney Dunn, cooking demonstrations, a Paddock to Plate Precinct, entertainment and much more! (see program for details).
We are calling for stalls that showcase our unique region and talent.
There will be four types of exhibitors:
Food Stalls - Selling mouth-watering dishes possibly with a local or international flavor especially with links to locally produced commodities or cooking demonstrations and tastings. (Saturday optional., Sunday Main Street Festival 9.00am to 1.00pm or 4pm)
General Market Stalls - Selling general good quality products - not necessarily farm or food related. (Saturday optional. Sunday Main Street Festival 9.00am to 1.00pm or 4pm)
Producers/Processors - Farmers and related businesses or food/fibre processors are invited to host an exhibit along the Festival Trail at the Main Street Festival on Sunday from 9.00am to 1.00pm which is an opportunity to provide educational materials and/or sell end products at the festival.
Meet the Maker - The Festival invites regional artists to showcase and/or sell quality handmade original wares to create an interactive art space. Spectators will be able to watch varied artists at work, including photos, portfolios and works in progress. This is located on the grassed area at the Coleambally Community Hall, towards Kingfisher Ave. Artists are welcome to share their stories on the Festival website, Facebook and Instagram prior to and during the festival.
The Festival Trail allows visitors to fully appreciate the importance of Irrigation farming, discover how modern irrigation techniques complement sustainable food production and encourage them to associate with a range of locally grown commodities and brands which they purchase in the supermarket.
Which area of the Festival Trail will I be in? There are a range of possible areas and we will work out the best suited area for your product or service. For example, Producers and Processors will be in one of the following areas...The Fibre Showcase (cotton, wool, straw etc), FarmYard (animals, machinery), Biodiversity Centre (water businesses, land care, irrigation products etc), Watering Hole (beverage, wine, beer, juice), Grazing Paddock (producers with food to sell), Paddock to Plate Precinct for farmers and producers/processors.
I am a Food & Fibre Producer/Processor & need help with my display. Our team of volunteers can assist you in showcasing your company or product, whereby your Farm, Food, Fibre story will form part of a series of themed banners guiding visitors through the Festival Trail on Sunday at Street Festival.
Other opportunities on the Sunday to promote your business and have fun, include building a dry land boat for the Food N Fibre Regatta and entering the Coly Cook Off.
