MidCoast CouncilSharon Bultitude |Tourism & Marketing Coordinator | Great Lakes Tourism

โ€œWe believe this event has the potential to become a regional flagship event for Forster Tuncurry and the MidCoast Region as a whole. This music and arts-based celebration provides an important and unique contribution to the overall Council Events Program. The event is also well positioned to drive visitation from outside the region, providing valuable economic stimulus to the town at this time of year. The inclusion of a “Create & Grow” market this year demonstrates the festival organiser’s recognition and desire to grow the event and encourage overnight stays. This is also reflected in the Festivals marketing direction, which has specifically targeted towns outside of Forster Tuncurry. Showcasing the regions stunning natural environment, its talent, product & produce the Lakeside Festival fully embraces the essence of the regions destination brand. Great Lakes Tourism therefore wholeheartedly supports the Lakeside Festival concept and believes that with adequate financial support can take the next step and fully develop its undoubtable potential to become a regionally significant event.โ€

Great Lakes FMAndrew Farr |General Manager

โ€œNot only will the Lakeside Festival promote this beautiful area to visitors and tourists, but it will also give the local community the opportunity to be involved in an event that they can truly call their own. Great Lakes FM will certainly be keen to promote the festival through community service announcements and interviews, and to participate in activities on the day.โ€

Great Lakes WineryRobyn Piper | Director

“When a group of people demonstrate the drive and commitment to volunteer their time to promote an event that the local community and businesses will benefit from they need to be encouraged and assisted so they can achieve their vision. We plan to participate in the Lakeside Festival and will assist wherever possible to make it successful. This type of event provides the opportunity to celebrate and showcase the rich diversity of food, wine, arts & entertainment the Great Lakes region offers and will serve to encourage and grow these specialty industries. We encourage other businesses and local government to support this event.”
