Static Stalls 2023

The Festival will be held from on Friday 17th and Saturday 18th  and Sunday the 19th of March 

The Festival Committee aims to offer festival-goers a wide variety of experiences. Food stalls, Art and Craft Market and Static stalls operate throughout the weekend.

Applications now open

Applications are now open for local clubs/ committees/ school groups/ friends to participate in the 2018 Festival by hosting a static (information) display. This is by invitation only as stalls are once again strictly limited due to tree protection measures at Stiggants Reserve.

Each application is subject to review by the Warrandyte Festival Committee and will be accepted or declined dependent upon the applicant meeting the criteria, type of stall and the number of applications received. There is no guarantee that stall holders will be invited back on an annual basis.

  • All tent pegs are to be covered and all equipment to be secured for weather (including windy) conditions.
  • Stallholders are not permitted to play their own music (as we have live bands performing throughout the weekend).

  • Please plan for hot and cold weather (including rain) and protect your stall accordingly.
  • Please limit commercial advertising on tents and/or as part of the stall set up.

Working towards a waste-free event

The Warrandyte Festival Committee continues to work towards a waste-free event. Stallholders and participants are required to provide services and materials in line with the Warrandyte Festival Committee’s waste management and recycling guidelines.

Compliance to the following guidelines is essential:

  • Any packaging must be recyclable e.g. bio-degradable products, paper, aluminium and steel cans rather than hard plastic/plastic wrap and polystyrene.
  • Avoid unnecessary packaging and/or promotional materials.
  • Under no circumstances is polystyrene or glass to be used.
  • Any boxes/cartons/and any large paper containers that you bring to the Festival are not to be put into the small recycle bins. The Festival provides a large trailer container for these items. The trailer is located at the lower river reserve car park near the permanent brick toilet block.

If you have rotating or voluntary staff, please place readable information about being waste wise where they can see it before their shift.

Fire safety

On days of total fire ban it is your responsibility to acquire a permit from the CFA headquarters if you are to use an open flame or fuel. The CFA will advise you on what can or can’t be used.

In case of extreme weather or fire conditions and on advice from the CFA and Police, the Warrandyte Festival Committee reserves the right to cancel or postpone the Festival.

Parking

Please note that one parking permit will be issued per stall. A specific stallholder parking area will be available to parking permit holders only on a first in, first-served basis. Permits will be available once successful applicants have paid their site fees and submitted all required documentation.

  • Read and abide by the Warrandyte Festival Risk Management Guidelines
