Into it’s 37th year, the Spring Fling runs on the support of the local community and as a not for profit festival it boasts the likes of bands, stalls, activities for all ages. As the last community run festival in Melbourne its ambition this year is to exceed last years number of visitors by encouraging as many people as possible from North, West Melbourne and it’s surrounding areas to get involved.
Each year a team of over 120 volunteers work together to create a fun filled day with over 15,000 attendees and 100 stalls of crafts, clothing, vintage, food and leisure. With an array of food and drink, the festival attracts visitors from all over Melbourne and will be held this year on 19th October 2014.
Alike to any not for profit festival, the Spring Fling Festival cannot operate without help from funding and the support of the Melbourne people. Over the next 60 days, Spring Fling are asking you to help by donating a small amount to keep the festival going this year and in the future from as little as $5.
Spring Fling Event Manager Emma McCashney states “The festival couldn’t continue without the support of the people of Melbourne. As a date for the diary in many of North and West Melbourne’s community, we are keen to continue the festival with even more new and exciting things including a focus on live music, the arts and creativity.”
Confirmed activities for this year include, the infamous bike club, fixed wheel roller racing, craft and design market and a sustainability artists in action area.
