Frequently Asked Questions

I’d like to become more involved with the festival. Can I volunteer to help on the day and how do I do this?

Absolutely! Volunteers are the heart and soul of our festival. Without the help and dedication from them and the community we would not be able to host a successful festival. You can email our Volunteer Manager at volunteers@beaufortstreetfestival.com.au or simply sign up here for more information.

Are there any opportunities for a late food stall/entertainment/bands?

Unfortunately not. You can register for The Beaufort Street Festival newsletter to stay updated on applications for 2016.

Will there be designated parking areas on the day?

We strongly encourage you to use public transport to prevent congestion around the area on festival day.

What is the main initiative behind the Beaufort Street Festival concept?

The Beaufort Street Festival has been developed as a platform for The Beaufort Street Network to showcase local talent, food, arts, fashion and music. It is a canvas for the community to have a voice and for ideas, concepts and creativity to be shared with everybody in the area. A playground for all businesses, sponsors, local artists and the community to come to join in the fun!  

Do I need a ticket to get into any areas on the day of the festival?

The Beaufort Street Festival is a completely free community event, which we have our sponsors to thank for! We strive to keep the festival open to all members of the public to enjoy as part of the Beaufort Street culture!

Where are the toilets located? 

See the event map for where to find toilets and other amenities.

Will festival programs be available?

Yes. These will be distributed throughout the street in businesses leading up to festival day, on the festival day itself around the festival site, and The Beaufort Street Network stall will have program copies as well. These will be available to pick up very soon!

What services are available for people with a disability?

What activities/stalls should we check out if we have limited time at the festival?

We are a young family, what do you have in store for us?

The City of Vincent Community Stage will have a fun family-friendly program keeping the whole family entertained with local primary school performances, the annual Beaufort Street Festival Dog Show and a wide range of talented dancers. Remida will be helping kids weave a silver web which will grow and change throughout the day as families build their own silver tangle.

The Sunday Times Sideshow Alley will have multiple rides and side shows to cater for all ages, with the St Alban’s shady grass area ideal for families, with a farm pretty zoo, bouncy castle and sausage sizzle.

Who are major sponsors of the Festival?

Without the support of our Major Sponsor, the City of Vincent, as well as our presenting partner, The Beaufort Street Network, the festival would not be possible. We also have our numerous principal/premier and festival sponsors who are always incredibly generous and assist wherever they can in bringing everything together for the fun-filled day.
