Jaca fair launch pad

CALLING all musicians, artists, foodies, volunteers, community groups and businesses - whatever you do, the Culture on the Clarence Community Fair wants you.

An inaugural Jacaranda Festival event, the community fair in South Grafton will lead the charge for the festival's 80th year celebrations, aiming to showcase the cultural diversity and wealth of local talent in the region.

To help achieve this, the organising committee is now taking expressions of interest from anyone who thinks they can add to the event in some way.

Committee member Brad Layton said they were hoping to celebrate the unusual, one-of-a kind, and local flavours of the Clarence.

"We're just trying to make it really community and family orientated," he said.

"We want to be the launch pad to celebrate the Jacaranda Festival's 80th year."

The Culture on the Clarence Community Fair will be held in Skinner St on October 19 from 9am to 3pm.
