The Council is looking for a community group or organisation to coordinate A Day in the Gardens Market, an event held during the Benalla Festival which this year runs between 29 October – 6 November.

“The event will be a useful fundraiser for the group that takes it on, and will provide the organisers with valuable event management experience,” said Chair of the Benalla Festival Advisory Committee Cr Barbara Alexander AO.

The market, which was established by the Benalla Family History Group in 2008, will be held on Sunday 6 November from 9am to 3pm in the Benalla Botanical Gardens.

It is one of the most popular events of the Benalla Festival, held on the last day and attracting many visitors with food, market stalls, family events, live music and other entertainment. The market provides an important outlet for craftspeople, local producers, artisans and designers producing high quality products

“We would love to hear from an energetic local group or organisation interested in hosting the market,” Cr Alexander said.

“The coordinating group will work with the support of the Benalla Festival Advisory Committee, and will benefit from the existing relationships with people who have participated in previous years,” she said.

“Planning for the Benalla Festival is already in full swing and A Day in the Gardens market is just one of the exciting events that will fill this year’s program with the theme the ‘Sky is the Limit’.  We are also calling for individuals, groups and organisations to host an event as part of the broader program,” Cr Alexander said.

Expression of Interest forms to coordinate A Day in the Gardens Market or to host an event in the festival program are available from www.benallafestival.com or the Customer Service Centre,1 Bridge Street East.

For further information, contact Events Coordinator Sharon Zimmermann on 03 5760 2600.
