To foster and encourage a cohesive, supportive, vibrant and inclusive community. To showcase our food and wine producers, highlight local attractions, and encourage connections between community members. Clubs, businesses and organisations are all invited to hold promotional stalls, activities and sell merchandise.
This event will also foster a network of musicians. Two members are teachers from Foster Secondary College, and are committed to inspiring young musicians to connect with the wider musical community. Students will be actively involved.
Encouraging locals to shop local has ongoing economic benefits, while reminding tourists why Foster is not just the gateway to the Prom.
