Burnett is where the heart is
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.
