2BOB Radio is proud to announce that the Envirofair & Multicultural Festival will be held on Saturday June 10 and organisers promise this year’s event will be as bright and entertaining as ever. The day will start at 9am and finish at 4pm with a gold coin donation requested upon entry.

This will be the 29th Envirofair with the focus once again on the 5 R’s    Reduce Reuse Recycle Renew and Repurpose, but this year 2BOB has added Recovery and Revival, to reflect the resilience required after recent years of drought, fire, floods and Covid. 

This year’s Envirofair will include environmentally themed market stalls and displays, plus the return of the Environmental speaker’s tent thanks to Jessica Leck and our local Landcare group. 

The multicultural aspect of the festival will include a variety of mouth-watering food stalls and informative displays, as well as live world music, including local artist Tlarmon and Pam Hata, with more to be confirmed. 

“Combining Envirofair with a Muliticultural Festival means we can reach a broader audience with multicultural displays and a line-up of world musical acts and dance performances to entertain the wonderful folks of the Manning and beyond,” said Brendan Parker, 2BOB’s Event Coordinator.

“A lot of things that have entered seamlessly into our lives, such as recycling, solar and renewable energy, the commercial rollout of electric vehicles and the phasing out of single use plastic bags were still just dreams when Envirofair first started,” said Brendan. “The growing popularity of Envirofair over the years reflects these gradual changes in society and there’s always room for improvement, such as the ‘Save Bulga Forest’ movement which has formed due to the return of logging in several of our local forests, so soon after the fires.”

Envirofair will have plenty to entertain the kids with face-painting, dance workshops, installations and a display from Reptile Solutions, where festival-goers can get up close and personal with a few of our reptilian friends!

The 29th Envirofair and Multicultural Festival will be a fabulous day of family fun entertainment for the Manning and beyond thanks to grants 2BOB has received from the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment – Crown Lands, Multicultural NSW & Midcoast Council.

Interested stallholders are invited to contact 2BOB via their Facebook page or email admin@2bobradio.org.au or ring the station on 6552 6200.
