Stallholders interested in exhibiting at this year’s Toowoomba Region Disability Action Week Community Festival on Saturday, September 14 are invited to register an Expression of Interest to join the program.
Toowoomba Regional Council Regional Access and Disability Advisory Committee chair Cr Joe Ramia said growing interest in the annual event meant Council had to cap the number of stallholders that could be accommodated around the Civic Square.
Cr Ramia said the day had grown to become a friendly and informative one-stop outing where residents could speak with service providers and community groups working in the disability services and allied health sector.
“Organisers are finalising this year’s event and are seeking expressions of interest from intending stallholders (community groups, businesses and service providers) by August 9. Council will notify applicants if they have secured a stall site from August 16,” Cr Ramia said.
“The September 14 Community Festival opens from 10am with a community panel discussion at The Annex followed by a guest speaker.
“Outside entertainment runs from 11am to 3pm at the Civic Square in front of the Toowoomba City Library. Residents can browse the stalls and visit a petting zoo.
“Disability awareness activities will be on display from 2-3pm at the multi-purpose room, Level 3, Toowoomba City Library.
“Emerge Cooking is offering a free sausage sizzle from noon to 2pm.”
