A Message From Our Chairperson – Jill Cross

I have much pleasure in inviting you to attend our 17th Festival on Saturday 12 October 2019. Like all community events the Festival would not be possible without the efforts of a band of hard working and passionate locals who meet year round to organise this much loved event.

Our Festival family is not complete without our many corporate sponsors, many of whom have been with us for 17 years. In particular Doral Mineral Sands who have been our major corporate sponsor for this entire time. The Shire of Dardanup Councillors and staff have continued to provide funding, in kind support and advice to make sure this is the best run event in the Shire of Dardanup.

This year we are celebrating our local timber industry, now and then. Back in the late 1800’s the timber industry was a very important part of Dardanup’s economy with timber exported from nearby Wellington Mills to the world. Today local industries such as Wespine, Laminex, Preston Woodchipping and T.J. Depiazzi provide local employment and continue to export timber products to the world. This theme will be celebrated with timber related displays. Keep an eye out on our website and facebook page for more info.

94% of the 190 people interviewed at last years Festival said they would be back for this years Festival so we must be doing something right. We pride ourselves on providing a low cost day out for families and something to interest all ages. Looking forward to seeing you and your family.
