Participate and Celebrate!

Do you have a great idea for a market stall?
Would you like an opportunity to fundraise for your group or an important cause? 

If so we would love to hear from you!
Get involved in this year’s SA Youth Week celebrations in Strathalbyn in one of the following ways:

Have a market stall
If you’re an artist, or make great jewellery, or are a gun at hair-wrapping, then why not have a stall as part of our youth market.  This is a great opportunity to kick off your business and make some $$$s.

Run an activity
Maybe you’d like to raise some funds for a charity or community group or have a fun activity you’d like to offer.  This could be anything – games, sports, sideshow activities – whatever you’d like to do.

We would love some extra pairs of hands to help run the event so if you like doing your bit for your local community get involved!
