- THE FESTIVAL
During the festival time Woodfordia is transformed into a village that hosts over 20,000 patrons, performers, stallholders, volunteers and organisers. During the event the festival is actually the 67th largest town in Australia. Each year construction begins in early December and continues up until Christmas Day. Over 250 contractors and volunteers build the village. Many come from around the world to be part of the festival build and then stay for a week after to pull the event down.
The festival build includes:
The team work with over 60 hired vehicles, 50 radio sets, 100 mobile phones and are powered by over 25,000 meals and unlimited good will.
