Want To Run A Festival?

Are you in Mackay and have a fantastic idea for a new festival? All you have to do is send a short written submission by March 31 outlining your event details and you could be proud recipient of $15,000 thanks to the folks from the recently cancelled Sarina Festival.

Although still drawing crowds of 1,500 plus and $40,000 a year in sponsorship, reluctantly the committee of Sarina Festival, made up of eight volunteers, have decided to cancel it after years of running the event leaving the group exhausted.

Now the group of volunteers plans to give away $15,000 of the profits they have made over the last three years through the event to create something new for their community.

To seize this opportunity send a short written submission outlining your event, naming sponsorship categories, date and location along with costed financials to sarinafestivalinc@iinet.com.au by March 31.

The successful applicant/s will be notified following the committee’s special meeting on April 5.
