SunFest volunteers are calling on local stall holders to register their interest in the multi-day event, with spaces already filling up fast.

The 48-year-old festival held on March 16 and 17, has continued to grow with thousands of locals flocking to attend in the past few years.

SunFest stalls coordinator Rachael White said they are looking for all types of stalls, big or small, and quite a few have already been accepted.

“We encourage anyone who is interested in having a stall at SunFest to visit our website and check out our stalls guide and application,” she said.

“SunFest is an entirely volunteer run event [and] we welcome any community members who would like to volunteer at SunFest and make this special event for our community.”

The free two-day festival will feature entertainment for all ages, including a parade, fireworks, local bands, roving entertainers, Sunbury Battle of the School Choirs and more.

Ms White said the committee have been busy planning and we are on track for a bigger and better festival this year.

“We will also have carnival rides and games, unique market and delicious food stalls. [Anyone] can like us on Facebook for all the latest announcements about our exciting program.

“We encourage schools, local businesses, sports and community groups to join our free grand street parade.

“Local businesses who would like to support SunFest or those who would like to join our colour run [can] check out our website.”
