Stallholder applications set to open for 2017/18 Woodford Folk Festival
The much anticipated stallholder applications for this year’s Woodford Folk Festival open tomorrow, Friday 30 June 2017, at 9am.
Each year, the iconic Queensland festival hosts over 200 food, craft and merchandise stalls, offering everything from organic donuts, coconuts and kombucha to hand-made jewellery and leather goods, musical instruments, massages and – vital in the heat of the Australian summer – ice-cream!
Securing a site at the Woodford Folk Festival not only gives stallholders a lucrative opportunity to access an aggregate audience of 129,000 people over eight days of trade, but an opportunity to align their brand with a festival renowned for it’s ambience and atmosphere.
Festival organisers are committed to offering patrons unique quality products and services made by local producers, artisans, food vendors and health and wellness therapists.
Stalls Manager, Robyn Kelly, says stallholders make a significant contribution to enhancing the Woodfordia spirit.
“We think of our stallholders as shareholders, investing in the festival in order to create a memorable experience for our patrons,” she says.
“We’re looking for stalls that are able to create a beautiful atmosphere that blends in with the aesthetics of the festival.”
Robyn says applicants hoping to trade at this year’s Woodford Folk Festival should pay special attention not only to the written application but also to the accompanying documents.
“I would recommend including several photographs, preferably of the stall trading at a market. Photos are important because it highlights the effort that’s required to make this festival special.”
This year, in order to streamline the process, the time between applications opening and closing has been shortened to little more than a month.
Hopeful stallholders won’t have long to register their interest – the closing date for applications and supporting material is 1st August 2017 at 5pm.
Vendors who are selling a product they believe in and are able to present a visually striking stall to trade between December 26, 2017 and January 2, 2018 can find more information and are invited to apply at the following address:
