Country Fair – Terms and Conditions

Note that these conditions are NOT the same as the monthly Gordonvale Markets.  Please read carefully.

The Great Pyramid Race and Country Fair General Market and Kids Zone operate from 10am to 6pm. The Food Zone operates from 10am to 7pm.

Stallholders are required to stay within the boundaries of their allotted space.  Unlike previous years we will not adjust the site plan to accommodate undisclosed requirements.

Whilst every attempt is made to accommodate stall-holders requests, no guarantee is made that they can be fulfilled.

Stall space is not secured until full payment has been made.

MOTOR VEHICLES ARE NOT PERMITTED TO ENTER THE PARK GROUNDS UNLESS AUTHORISED BY THE COMMITTEE PRIOR TO 1st August.
It is in the interest of everyone’s safety that we restrict the movement of vehicles within Norman Park.

If your motor vehicle and / or trailer make up part of your stall (ie food van) – you must put all this information on our expression of interest form.

Store holders are not permitted to drive on to Norman Park grounds to unload your goods.
You must unload from the Cannon Street Loading Zone.

Infrastructure (e.g. gazebo, chairs and tables, ropes, heavy duty tent pegs, lights) required for your stall must be supplied by the stall holder. All electrical equipment is required by law to be tested and tagged by a licenced electrician. The committee will not supply any electrical equipment or physical stall infrastructure UNLESS PREVIOUSLY AGREED IN WRITING.

Stalls/sites will not have access to on-site/mains power UNLESS PREVIOUSLY AGREED IN WRITING.

In line with general commercial practice, stallholders are required to maintain relevant insurance of their products and operation. You are required to provide evidence of public liability insurance ($20M) to operate at the markets, thus ensuring protection for yourselves and your customers.

Please bring a trolley/hand cart if that will help moving goods to and from the loading zone in Cannon Street.

Anyone who who will be working with children as part of their services (eg face painting) must have a blue card available for inspection.

You must adhere to the restrictions in the road closures section of this web site and bring your permit with you.

Food stallholders are required to maintain relevant insurance of their products and operation, and are required to provide evidence of public liability insurance and food handling certificates to operate at the markets.
