Taste of the Tablelands

A Letter from Connie Duncan

The Tastes of the Tablelands Festival will be held again this year on the 17th October 2010.  We are holding it on a Sunday again as this day proved popular with everyone. The festival will go from 10am – 4pm.  Last year many stallholders felt that 5pm was too late to finish and many stallholders packed up at 4pm.  This Festival won an Australia Day Award for the best community Event in the Tableland region in 2008, an award the Rotary Club of Atherton is very proud of. We are inviting you to be part of this great event this year. We would love to see your business set up a stall this year and allow the visitors to the festival to see and experience your wonderful product.  Last year 4000 people attended the festival and this year we are hoping to increase this number significantly as we intend to market further afield.

This great community event will be taking place again in the serene grounds of the Chinese Temple on Herberton Road, Atherton and it will once again be a showcase of the very best that the Tablelands has to offer. This will be a great opportunity for you to promote your business and your products. The day will be filled with cooking demonstrations, music, entertainment, a fashion parade, a vintage car/motorbike display, ice carving displays and children’s activities.  The Chinese Temple Museum and the Art Gallery will also be open.  All funds raised on the day will go towards community projects organized by the Rotary Club of Atherton.

If you are interested in being part of this great event please fill out an event registration form  and return it to the address on the form or ring/email me so that I can allocate a stall for your business.  I will then send an invoice for the amount owing.

If you are cooking/preparing food on the day you need to contact the Tableland Regional Council and ensure you have the correct certificates and equipment in place. There may be a fee involved if you are preparing food.   If you wish to find out more about the day please contact Trevor or myself and we will endeavour to answer any questions you may have.

We look forward to hearing from you,
