Canowindra is all set for a huge October long weekend this year, and the Canowindra Business Chamber is calling upon anyone interested in holding a food stall. Well-known local Charlie McCarron will be holding his highly anticipated motor vehicle auction weekend during the October long weekend, and with thousands of people expected, it will be a caterers dream.
At this stage the Business Chamber is anticipating 2,000 registered bidders to converge on Canowindra, with 1,000 of those expected to bring their wives or families. The event is sure to present a fantastic opportunity for local businesses and community groups to capitalise on the extra visitors to town.
At this stage, six groups are needed to fill two time slots on Saturday, October 1, to serve food and drinks. As there will be no power, hot food will need to be prepared on a BBQ.
Canowindra Business Chamber Vice President Tommy Jeffs said the event was a great chance to boost the local economy. “It’s also a great opportunity for local schools and community groups to set up a stall and do some fundraising,” he said. Interested groups should call Caddie Marshall on 0499 773 132 and must have a Certificate of Currency and a current Food Safety Supervisor Certificate.
