Further guidelines may be sent to all ticket holders via email 1 week prior to the event, as the rules are easing/changing regularly.


Can I buy tickets on the gate? We always have a few hundred tickets available at the gate for those who don’t like to make online purchases – but be sure to arrive early to secure these as they will sell-out. To be 100% sure you can attend we recommend pre-purchasing tickets online particularly for Saturday or Weekend passes.


Is there parking onsite? Plenty of space for all visitors onsite, please be patient as the CFA will be volunteering their time for free to assist parking everyone safely – be sure to have a gold coin donation ready. Parking open from 8am.


What time are gates open? 9am – 4pm both days.


Are DOGS allowed? Sorry no dogs allowed.


Why aren’t DOGS allowed? Sorry everyone! It was actually a tough decision with much discussion. We have allowed dogs the first 2 years but received LOTS of complaints….

  • Dogs stealing lunches from kids hands and jumping on unsuspecting little ones.
  • Many owners not adhering to the rules of ‘all dogs must be on lead and must attend to all poop’. Leading to various dog fights, volunteers having to chase down loose dogs and of course…poop!
  • Exhibitors with animals weren’t respected. In one case a dog was frightening goats which lead to the exhibitors marquee almost getting pulled down whilst the dog owner watched on seemingly unfazed.

So….we’re very sorry. We love dogs too, but they can longer come into the festival grounds.


Is this a disabled access event? The event is held on a flat oval and is very easy to navigate, there are no stairs. Disabled parking spaces are available, just let the CFA know and they direct you as close to the gate as possible. And there will be 1 disabled access compost loo and 1 disabled access porta-loo onsite – see the site map for locations.


Will the event continue in rain? Yes, this is an all weather event. It will only be cancelled in Extreme Weather conditions. Please check the weather before you leave and bring appropriate clothing, we’ve had complaints about the weather before strangely – but it’s out of our control.

BYO – Hats and sunscreen if it’s sunny. And raincoats if it’s raining – simple!


Do I need to book into workshops? Some of the featured workshops can be pre-booked online – see booking links on workshop page. Others are booked direct with the host on the day. We recommend tracking down your host first thing to ensure your place – even for the free ones, as many have limited spaces. WORKSHOP PROGRAM TO BE RELEASED SOON.
