Want to become a stall holder?

We would love to have you apply to be a stall holder at Wandiligong Nut Festival.  The Wandiligong Nut Festival is expected to have an average crowd of 2,000 people (weather depending).  In 2019, the Wandiligong Nut Festival had around 3,000 visitors. This year, to make it easier to comply with COVIDSafe restrictions it will be a ticketed event priced at $5 for people aged 12 years and over.

Stall holder sites are divided into 3 categories:

  • local producers,

  • local art & craft stalls,

  • local food & drink stalls.

In order to make it worthwhile for all we only have around 20 spots available in each category, and try to make sure that stalls are differentiated.  All sites are readily accessible and in view of the stage area.  This year we have a separate application process for Breweries, Wineries and Distilleries. Please see here.

 

As we receive many more applications than we can accept please carefully study the following selection guidelines and make sure you fit them all before applying.

 

What do we look for?
