The Bull and Barrel is a free festival is created by the Dardanup Community to celebrate the diverse offerings of the Dardanup region. It is a great low-cost day out for families with over 150 market and food stalls, live music and demonstrations, a monster kids craft marquee and plenty of animals!

Other attractions include the Tastes of the Ferguson Valley tent, trash and treasure stalls, Die cast toys and mini trains and of course the Wespine Fire Sculpture.

The festival’s spectacular finale is in the evening. Live entertainment is provided until the lighting of the Wespine Fire Sculpture which is always built by a local artist. Hear the crowd roar as the ‘bull’ burns!

To all those stallholders patiently 😗 waiting to access applications 📱it’s not far off. The new look website looks amazing thanks 👏👏👏 to Anthony and his team from Rethink Marketing. Tracey is experimenting on a few of our regular stallholders in the next couple of days to make sure the applications ✍️ are good to go and everyone will have a smooth run when applying. When we give that the big tick ✅ Tracey will let you all know and you can jump on our website and send us those lovely applications. If you haven’t applied before then keep an eye 👀on this Facebook page as you will also be notified here too when everything is up and running. 👍👍 ...

www.facebook.com/shireofdardanup/posts/3659302140840970Due to unforeseeable circumstances the headline act for Youthfest 2021, Joan and the Giants, has been replaced with Dulcie, a four-piece girl band from Perth!!

If you haven’t heard of them, Dulcie is fast becoming one of the most exciting acts to come, not only out of Perth but in the whole country. Their sound is not confined to one genre but instead is an amalgamation of their individual musical influences, soaring hooks and inventive melodies.

The band’s effortlessly cool energy and quirkiness is amplified at their live gigs. Usually spotted wearing vintage pink overalls or bright retro tops, it’s easy to forget you’re not stuck in some kind of ‘70s time loop. This profound sense of nostalgia is also reflected in their name. Derived from the Latin word ‘dulcis’, which means ‘sweet’, Dulcie is named after Ashleigh’s great-grandmother, who was also a talented singer.

So make sure you come along to Youthfest this Saturday from 2pm until 5pm at the Burekup Oval to check out Dulcie, along with their amazing support acts.

Solaris Cancer Care

Solaris Cancer Care is a community-based healthcare organisation. Our Cancer Support Centres are the first of their kind in Australia and offer support, information, education, and complementary therapies to cancer patients and their primary carers.

The LiveLighter Dardanup Bull and Barrel Festival Committee is very excited to be partnering with Solaris Cancer Care who will have a marquee at the Festival where you can visit, have a chat with their volunteers, maybe have a massage and learn about the wonderful free services they offer to cancer patients and their families from their Centre in Brittain Rd, Bunbury.

The Festival Committee has chosen to partner with Solaris Cancer Care as we know cancer is a disease that effects many of us and we want to help get the word out there so everyone knows about the Solaris Cancer Care services which can make such a difference to the lives of people going through cancer treatment.
