2019 Stall bookings are open now
The 2019 Festival will be on Sunday March 3rd, and market stall bookings have started coming in – come and join us!
We are aiming to get the stall site allocations done much earlier next year – and to make this possible we are bringing the booking dates forward. This year the early bird prices will only run until November 10th, and we plan to close the bookings altogether by 10th February 2019. As a result you will get your stallholder information packs at least two weeks before the Festival, and we can get the stallholders’ directory up on the website at the same time. We intend to use this for more marketing of the great range of stalls – and there will be more opportunities for you as stallholders to get your message out to customers as well!

There is even more reward than previously for taking advantage of the early bird payment – the early bird prices haven’t changed, but for the first time in several years we have increased the standard stall prices, so there is a bigger gap now between the early bird and the regular fees. We have dropped the $50 late booking and payment fee. An increase is needed because our compliance costs have gone up significantly – for instance it is now much more expensive to close the road for the day than it was 5 years ago – but you can keep your costs down by booking and paying now. You also have a better chance of getting a site in your preferred zone – but do read the notes on the booking pages for more information about stall site allocation.
If you are a returning stall holder please use the ‘Preferences’ box on the booking form to let us know, and tell us if you want to go back to the same site – this isn’t always clear to us.
If you are booking on behalf of a community or sports group and want an information stall you can book a 2m x 2m $25 stall, as in past years, and we have added a 3m x 3m information stall site for $50. If you want to sell items for fundraising or to have a bigger space, please book a regular stall site, and email us with your plans before you pay. We are happy to reduce the stall fee for a good cause.
Remember – its not just the date you book, its the date you pay that we look at when we allocate stall sites. We can make arrangements for paying by instalments – just send us an email to discuss.
