Samford Valley Steiner School’s festiValley returns in August 2018

festiValley, Samford Valley Steiner School’s biennial fair, is returning on Saturday 4 August 2018.  Between 10.00am and 4.00pm, the school’s bushland grounds will be transformed into a vibrant marketplace of food, craft, and entertainment!

Activities cater for all ages. For younger children, there will gem fossicking, face painting and baby animals. Older children can enjoy silk painting, tie-dyeing, wooden sword making and candle-making.  For teens and adults, there’s henna tattoos, crate climbing, and a forging workshop. Activity tickets can be pre-purchased online at www.trybooking.com/UVDW.

This year a series of talks will be held in The Conversation Space ‘Yur imbar’. A selection of high school art will be auctioned and there will be something for everyone at our Second Chance Stall – quality clothing, books, and toys!

Local artisans and craftspeople will be selling their unique creations and local entertainers will be roving the fair. From puppet shows to storytellers and musicians, our festival has something for everyone. An ATM will be available onsite for your convenience.

Nutritious food is always a highlight of festiValley. As well as two school-run cafés and a Chai Tent in the main festival space, there will be a café in the kindergarten where parents and carers with small children can relax in an enclosed play space.  A large selection of home-baked sweet and savoury food, with organic, gluten-free and vegan options will be available, along with fair-trade coffee!

We are working towards a single-use plastic free and sustainable festival. Patrons are encouraged to bring their own water bottles and coffee cups, and water will be freely available freely at a special stand.

This year there are two incredible Raffles with a fantastic array of prizes totaling over $10,000.  Tickets can be purchased on the day (full prize listing here - www.samfordsteiner.qld.edu.au/wp-content/uploads/Raffle-Prize-Listing-updated.pdf ).
• Raffle 1 has 4 prizes, each valued at $2,000 which will be drawn in order of prizes.
• Raffle 2 is a Pamper Package valued at $2,030.

After the raffle draw at 4 pm, festiValley will draw to a close with a final musical performance from students and staff.
