How you can get involved:

  • Make an original sculpture… You don’t have to call yourself an artist, you can just let that niggling little good idea become a reality. We encourage you to use recycled materials and what is at hand. What’s in the shed? Be creative, give-it-a-go and get on board. The top prize is $5000 and there are more than 10 categories.
  • Kids, this is for you too. We love your original thinking so get your school involved or strike out alone. We want to see your wildest imaginings.
  • Crafters, bespoke makers, artists, food stands, school fundraising groups… ask us about having a stall. The numbers through the gate are worth it. 

What to expect:

  • A wonderful day out with jaw dropping sculptures that reflect on this beautiful land we live in. 
  • Proof that art is for everyone and that a little village is big on community spirit and heart.
  • Prize money that makes the competition hot with categories that cater for all. 
  • Activities that will fill your day and keep the whole family happy, true country hospitality will be here by the bucket load.
  • Quality stalls, good food and great coffee. 
  • A feeling of inclusion and positivity…..this festival is for everyone. Think of it as a mental health day off the farm, a day out of the house and an adventure with a difference.
