Hotham Park Heritage Trust Country Fair 2015
HOTHAM PARK HERITAGE TRUST VOLUNTEERS once again delivered a week-end of family fun and activity with their 14th Country Fair on the 1st & 2nd August 2015.
Visitors enjoyed the enormous variety of Craft Stalls and entertainment that the Trust lined up for their enjoyment at this traditional annual event.
Throughout the park there were local Crafts, animal displays and children’s activities, a Tea Tent, Beer Tent, Hog Roast, Thai food, and savouries. Crazee Hazee provided fun and laughter at the Mary Macfie Pavilion, and everyone could listen to, watch or join in the live entertainment at the bandstand, travel on a horse- drawn wagon or ride a donkey.
The piebald horses Magpie and Billy, otherwise known as ‘Big and Little’, appeared on both Saturday and Sunday and the crowd were enthralled by the tricks that were performed for them. There was also a petting arena where children of all ages could enjoy themselves in the company of meerkats, snakes, spiders and the like! Click here to see our videos of the event.
We want this event to be even bigger and better in future years. For this to happen we need more people to become a Member of Hotham Park Heritage Trust and take an active role in the planning, preparation and running of the event. By becoming a Member, not only will you help to ensure this event is able to continue, you will also be contributing to and having a say in the future development of Hotham Park. To apply please visit our Membership page.
We also need Event Volunteers and people and organisations who would like to be a Sponsor, Advertiser, Exhibitor, or Donator. Whatever support you can give us we would love to hear from you and can assure you that if you would like to get involved you will be very welcome and valued by the Trust.
Around 15,000 people attended this very popular event which means there will be very high demand to trade or exhibit at the event in future years. For details of how traders/exhibitors can apply please visit our Exhibit at an Event page.
Hotham Park Heritage Trust is a Registered Charity and the work is undertaken by a group of unpaid volunteers. This means that funds raised at the event are spent on improving the amenities in Hotham Park, for the benefit of the public.
In December we hold our annual Carols in the Park and Father Christmas event.
