FRUITFUL FIRST HARVEST

Festival returns in 2018
AGRICULTURE is still big business on the Central Coast, especially in the plateau and mountains region west of Somersby.
To celebrate this traditional part of coast life, Central Coast Council is encouraging local producers to participate in the 2018 Harvest Festival following a fruitful first event this year. 
 
More than 10,000 people attended the two-day Festival in June, despite the unfavorable weather, with visitors hailing it a success and keen to come back next year.
 
Council Connected Communities Group Leader Julie Vaughan is calling on local farmers, businesses and event organisers to be a part of the popular Festival promoting the hidden gems of our valleys and mountains to be held in June 2018
 
“We will be reproducing the Harvest Festival next year that celebrates the fantastic local produce and the producers in our region, showcasing their diversity through a range of events and activities,” Ms Vaughan said.
 
“We are looking to support a range of unique events and activities that will add to our diverse Festival calendar for the Coast.
“It’s a great time to make your next big idea happen for the valleys and mountains, as we also have just opened our new-look grants and sponsorship funding program so the timing is perfect to look for funding for your event.”
 
Events will be held across six hubs at Peats Ridge, Calga, Somersby, Mangrove Mountain, Kulnura and Yarramalong. The program has been designed to encourage festival-goers to follow an event trail supporting visitation at multiple hubs.
