Emerald Funfest - PAVE Festival Emerald

If you bought any of the yummy food at this year's FunFest, you would have seen the dedication from our wonderful Wash Against Waste volunteers. We are looking for a community group to coordinate and run this activity for us at the 2020 FunFest. Putting it out there early so you can socialise it with your groups and we have plenty of time to plan and train volunteers. Of course, the FunFest committee will help you get things set up and support you all the way but this is a great activity to get your whole group involved with. Here is Costa Georgiadis Official with a great little introductory video. Get in touch at info@funfest.org.au or via facebook message to express interest or find out more.

Costa Georgiadis Official
Wash Against Waste is an institution at the National Sustainable Living Festival. It’s all about getting the food vendors at events to work from a common pool of tableware that is then washed and reused across the course of the event. It’s a waste minimizing and single use plastic terminator.

Thank you to Emerald Community House for providing a Funfest/PAVE resource basecamp for the festival.

A HUGE thank you to our sponsors. Wellington Village, EcoGroup, Stockdale & Leggo Emerald, Kaye Charles Real Estate, Vibe Voice and Data, Pro Site Hire, Emerald Community House, Grizlec - Registered Electrician, Harvest Cellars 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

Yes, a HUGE HUGE thanks to all our sponsors. Also, to everyone who helped on the day. It was a busy, long day (yes, it was a 5.30 am start) & your assistance was very much appreciated to help make it a fabulous day Emerald Funfest - PAVE Festival Emerald YOU ROCK!!

There is an unsung hero of Funfest 2019 that we need to give a shout out to... Barrythebeeman .

Last year we had thousands of European wasps, and ambulance/first aid members kept very busy all day treating stings. As volunteer festival committee members we were positive something had to be done, the stress of kids being stung and worrying about patrons was a lot to deal with!

We saw all of Barry's information on social media, and decided to contact him about the festival. He did his thing over the weeks prior and the food court on the day was a MUCH better place because of it. The side benefit is that the main town of Emerald will have a reduced number of wasps moving into autumn and winter, and therefore less wasps next year as well!

We're calling that a massive win!!

If you are dealing with wasp, bee swarming, insect or rodent issues, really do give Barry a call. He's fast, affordable, LOCAL, and a genuinely nice guy. 0413 057 756
