Snag a stall for Brunswick’s Old and Gold

BRUNSWICK HEADS award winning Old and Gold Festival is set to shine for the 14th time over the June 11 long weekend.

The festival was created in part to revitalise the town and gives locals the opportunity to bring out their hidden treasures and host a garage sale for a fee of just $10 which goes towards the organisation and promotion the festival.

Registration forms are available from Byron Shire Real Estate and organisers are expecting to beat last year’s record of 109 stalls. Deadline is May 29 for inclusion in the Byron Shire News map and lift out feature.

“Several stall sites are still available at the Brunswick Heads Public School’s Treasure Trove, the Ye Olde Church Fair and the CWA Fair, with just a couple of sites available at the Collectables Fair at the Memorial Hall,” said festival coordinator Cherie Heale.

“The non-for-profit festival also provides fundraising opportunities for community groups holding BBQ’s, cake stalls or tending to the parking.

“It’s a celebration of all things old, second-hand and recycled …and at the same time the festival creates an adrenalin-inducing shopping experience for punters who find the challenge of hunting for treasure irresistible.”

Brunswick Picture House will host a kids show and barn dance, along with ‘Bonnie’, the Stone & Wood caravan and there will be live music at the Soundshell, Valiant Music, the IGA, Memorial Hall, The Terrace and Clem's Cargo.

“It will be a great day of shopping and bargain hunting, horse and carriage rides, community BBQs, the marbles championships, cake stalls, street entertainment, Devonshire teas, environmental displays, book fairs, free face painting and so much more,” said Ms Heale.

“A big thanks to Principal festival sponsors Byron Shire News, North Coast Holiday Parks and Footbridge for supporting the event this year.”

“We have been thrilled with the level of support received for this event and also sincerely thank our Gold, Silver and other sponsors who’ve provided the financial assistance that is essential to put this event on each year. We’re also grateful for the magnificent prizes donated for the Lucky Penny and other raffles.”
