The Mission Beach Community Cassowary Festival is a celebration of nature, focusing on the cassowary and the community. It will be held in conjunction with the Rotary Sunday village market and continue throughout the afternoon. A beachside marquee and stage will host guest speakers, live music, performances, competitions and more. Being held at the beginning of the tourist season, the event is expected to attract a big audience, including celebrities, politicians and national media. Please see their website, facebook page and the attached flyer for more details on the event.
Groups or individuals working with the natural environment, particularly wildlife, are invited to set up a display under a large shared covered area or you may bring your own marquee. It will be a great chance to share knowledge and promote your organisation and the conservation work you do.
There is no fee to participate. Display holders may offer items for sale on condition they promote ecologically sustainable wildlife tourism and/or wildlife protection and, preferably, items are made or produced by the display holder.
