Bur­nett is where the heart is

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

THE sec­ond Heart­land Fes­ti­val is on again from Fri­day, June 30 to Sun­day, July 2 and will once again show­case all things made, grown and pro­duced in the North Bur­nett.

This year the Heart­land Fes­ti­val will have five key events across the whole week­end.

Start­ing off the week­end will be the wine and cheese night at the Gayndah Arts and Cul­tural Cen­tre from 7pm on June 30, in­clud­ing gourmet plat­ters, lo­cal art dis­plays, a pi­ano avail­able for any­one to play and three bars.

Tick­ets for the art and cul­ture evening are $30 and in­clude a glass of wine.

Event or­gan­iser Re­nee McGil­very is en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple from the Bur­nett and beyond to come along and see ev­ery­thing on of­fer for them­selves.

“At the mar­ket day there is plenty to see, touch, taste and pur­chase at over 60 stalls,” Ms McGil­very said.

“In­clud­ing fresh pro­duce, flow­ers, art, cloth­ing and live en­ter­tain­ment.

“For the kids, there is face paint­ing, as well as a free kids area with jump­ing cas­tle, Lego tent and sand­pit.”

The mar­ket day is be­ing held at the Gayndah show­grounds from 10am to 4pm on Satur­day, July 1.

En­try price is a gold coin do­na­tion at the gate.

Last year’s mar­ket day proved a big suc­cess with 4000 peo­ple through the gate and 220 stall­hold­ers.

“It was a beau­ti­ful day,” Ms McGil­very said.

Bou­tique wine and beer tast­ing is also on the menu along with more than a dozen ready-to-eat food stalls.

Ms McGil­very was thrilled with the 2016 mar­ket day and has been work­ing hard over the past 12 months to make sure it and the rest of the fes­ti­val will again ex­ceed ex­pec­ta­tions.

“Cel­e­brate, feast on, ex­pe­ri­ence and take home all things made, grown and pro­duced in the North Bur­nett at this year’s Heart­land Fes­ti­val,” Miss McGil­very said.

Tick­ets for all five events are on sale now at heart­land­fes­ti­val.com.au.
