With Autumn beckoning, Festival Fleurieu is fast approaching and the organisers, artists & venues are all flat out preparing for what promises to be fabulous festival offering in April.
But if you thought you have plenty of time to think about what to attend, think again. Festival organisers have issued a timely warning to act now to avoid disappointment.
The most urgent call is to vote in the Fleurieu Four Seasons Prize for Landscape Photography People's Choice Award. Photographs were taken during a period of one year (from Summer 2013 to Spring 2014) showcasing local landscape and coastal images across the four seasons.
Logon to //fleurieuwestconnect.com.au/ffs.php to view the photos and cast your vote. Voting will end at midnight on Saturday 28th February 2015. The competition includes over one hundred and fifty photos of glorious western Fleurieu landscapes, and photographers are competing for $2000 in prize money. The winner will be announced on Thursday 26th March.
Sales of many of the ticketed events at this year’s Festival Fleurieu are selling fast according to Festival Chairman, Mr Greg Mackie. Speaking to Fleurieu West Connect this week, Mr Mackie said “a couple of events have already sold out and many others have sold around half capacity with five weeks left until the festival.” Mr Mackie said he was delighted with the response so far and encouraged everyone to book early.
Tickets in the Chance in a hundred lottery are also selling well. With ten great short holiday prizes and only 1000 tickets to be sold, every ticket enjoys a one in a hundred chance to win a prize. The winners will be drawn at the Festival Finale to be held at Leonard's Mill, Second Valley on 19 April 2015. Proceeds from the Lottery will go to support Festival Fleurieu. Lottery enquiries should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Beginning on Saturday, 11th April, and ending Sunday, 19th April, Festival Fleurieu features more than 90 events, exhibitions and workshops. Many of the events are free to attend. The official opening of the Festival will occur at midday at the Normanville street party - Fiesta Fleurieu - to be held on 11th April by His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Le AO, Governor of South Australia.
Fleurieu West Connect is proud to be a Prime Partner of Festival Fleurieu.
