Stallholder Information

2019 Canberra Harvest Festival, Saturday 23 March 2019, 2 - 6pm 

The Canberra Harvest Festival was established in 2009 to promote and celebrate the joys and benefits of local food.  The festival hosts a variety of fresh produce stalls, workshops, food and music in a fun and family-oriented environment. 

Previous festivals have been successful community events with more than 1500 people in attendance.  This year we are looking to grow the festival while maintaining the relaxed and friendly atmosphere that attendees have come to expect.  

Please note, local fresh produce stalls will be given priority at the Harvest Festival.
