SpringFest Ambassadors Tim Bone & Jules Zass

Spring, sprung, SpringFest!

We are forging ahead with plans for SpringFest 2021. Our ambassadors Tim Bone & Julia Zass (and their little apprentices) are ready for a bloomin’ good time.

MUCH loved community market day and Rotary Club of Ballarat’s major fundraiser, SpringFest, is set to return in 2021.

“SpringFest Ballarat in past years has spanned over six kilometres against the serene backdrop of Lake Wendouree,” said co-director David Torrington.

“This year, to enable the Rotary Club of Ballarat to meet the current requirements to operate a COVID safe event, SpringFest Ballarat Market Sunday will be located at the Ballarat Showgrounds where we can coordinate things like check-ins and have entry and exit points.”

Along with the traditional market Sunday, a huge food truck night is planned for the Friday 26th November. As the town’s top toasie tzar SpringFest ambassador Tim Bone said the Food Truck Friday event was going to be special.

“It’s an amazing idea,” he said. “There’s some great food trucks around Ballarat and with the food scene, I think it’s a great fit. “Those funky little food trucks are really popping up and it’s great showcase them.

2021 SpringFest Ballarat is currently set for Sunday, 28 November at the new Covid-friendly location of the Ballarat Showground. With a Food Truck Friday rolling into the same location on 26 November.
