Well it is official; the annual Bloomin’ Beautiful Blackbutt Festival is adding an AVOCADO and is now the Bloomin’ Beautiful Blackbutt Avocado Festival.
On the 10 and 11 September, one of the South Burnett region’s largest community festivals will showcase one of the most popular fruits and the region’s largest agricultural export. The unofficial Blackbutt Avocado Growers have all provided support for the name change and financial commitment to market Blackbutt and the regions avocado credentials.
This year the Festival has a new naming rights sponsor, so a big Thank you to Ken Mills Toyota who is our naming rights sponsor. The official launch of the new look festival will be on 4th June as part of the Festivals Qld Week Family Fun Day with special guest Chad Morgan.
‘This year the Festival committee will be hosting a number of events throughout the year in the lead up to the big new Avocado spectacular to provide community and economic support for the towns of Blackbutt and Benarkin.”
“We are also working closely with other organisations on community projects including the Blackbutt and Benarkin song with Josh Arnold. Josh will be working with the kids from both the Blackbutt and Benarkin State Schools to write our very own song that will be made into a music video clip for You Tube. This is a very exciting project as part of this year’s programming. “
“There are more surprises in store and all will be revealed at the official launch in June with Chad Morgan and The Muirs”.
