The Earth Festival – Saturday & Sunday, 25 & 26 March 2017

The Earth Festival on the 25th and 26th of March 2017 from 10am – 5pm each day. It is about creating awareness to our community about themselves, those around them, animals and the environment. The focus for the exhibition is on all aspects on veganism and hoping to share issues that are damaging to animals, our heath and the environment.

The 2 day event will be packed with a huge food court, workshops and speakers, a giant inflatable obstacle course, worthwhile non-profit organisations, and stakeholders providing you with more food, clothing, accessories, make up, skincare and a whole lot more!! There will also be local and interstate bands and singers playing live music

Be sure to grab your tickets early, the first 300 people who purchase their tickets will be entered in a draw to win a gift basket filled with lush products (donated), Arbonne products (donated) and vegan junk food including oeros, pringles, red rock deli sea salt chips, chocolate, veggie chips, sour patch kids and much more!! To be entered in the draw be one of the first 300 people to purchase a ticket, say you are going to the event and like our page.

Early bird ticket sales ends on the 31st of December 2016 or when they are sold out, early bird tickets allow you to save $5 on one day tickets and $10 on 2 day tickets. It would be ideal to come for both days as there will be different workshops and speakers.

A percentage of all the ticket sales will be donated to Sleepy Burrows to help build new facilites for their sanctuary.

Our website will have details about stakeholders, entertainment and the program of whats running over both days. http://www.theearthfestival.org/
