Taradale Mineral Springs Festival makes its return

After a two-year break due to Covid 19 the renowned Taradale Mineral Springs Festival is set to make its return this Sunday March 12.
Attractions will include more than 50 stands offering gourmet food, wine, craft beer, gin and whisky. There will also be jewellery, a CFA display and activities, a classic car display, acoustic and rock music, plus many children’s activities such as face painting, plaster painting, story telling and a visit by Captain Koala.
Taradale Mineral Springs Festival Committee president Peter Phillips said they have worked for many months to assemble a great line-up of stallholders and entertainment for this year’s event. “We also have a raffle with more than $7,000 in prizes up for grabs, including a $5,000 travel prize courtesy of Broadhurst Property, with tickets just $5 each!” Peter said.
The festival will run from 10am to 4pm and entry is $5, with free admission for children Under 15. All proceeds go towards Taradale Volunteer Community Groups to assist with local projects. “We are very grateful to our major sponsors Castlemaine Slate & Stone, Good Earth Garden Supplies, Interior Solutions, Malmsbury Bakery and Metro Taradale for supporting the event and making it possible,” Peter said.
