Arts and Craft Market, Food and Entertainment – Expressions of Interest
Market Stalls, Food & Demonstrations: Mareeba Shire Council is calling for Expressions of Interest (EOI) from artists, craftspeople and food vendors to operate a market stall at the Mareeba Arts Festival.
The market will feature a variety of high quality, unique art forms and products sold direct from the artist, at different price points and appealing to a broad cross-section of the community.
We encourage market vendors to interact with the community and demonstrate their products to contribute to the vibrant atmosphere.
Entertainment: Mareeba Shire Council is calling for Expressions of Interest (EOI) from artists to provide entertainment during the event (for example, music, dance, circus, theatrical performance.) A program will be formulated indicating the performer’s time. Please indicate preferred time and duration of your act. There will be no stage set-up and artists will be encouraged to intersperse with other festival activities to create a festival atmosphere.
Expressions of Interest will be received up until Friday, 15 September 2017 and stallholders will be advised of the outcome as soon as possible, following the submission of the EOI to Council.
Please contact Robert Blake or Amy Phillips on 1300 308 461 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
