Some background to the Gnome and Fairy Festival
Following the success of our first Gnome Festival on Australia Day, 2013, the event was re-titled as “The Gnome and Fairy Festival” in 2014 and held each year since then on a date in February or March that avoids other local community events and fits in with the school year.
Our last event in March 2023 was a successful and happy day. The weather was fine and warm and right from 10am large numbers of young families with plenty of fairies, and a few gnomes, began streaming in, and a great day was had by all! Thank you to the many people and family groups who attended and made it such an enjoyable day. Thank you also to the many stall holders, side show operators and volunteers who all contributed to the success of the event. It was estimated that some 5,000 people attended over the course of the day.
The Festival brings fun to families with a whole range of activities focusing particularly on children up to 10 years of age. However there are also activities to suit all ages.
