PLANNING is now underway for the ninth Sale Music Festival to take place in the picturesque Sale Botanic Gardens on March 7, 2021.
The free community event is held on the Sunday of the Labour Day long weekend in March, and has become an extremely popular festival highlighting a wide variety of local Gippsland musical talent attracting people from far and wide enjoying the delightful picnic atmosphere.
Everyone is encouraged to take their own picnics but once again, local service clubs will be selling food and beverages for those wishing to avail themselves of their delicious offerings.
Money raised by these local groups stays with these clubs, to be used for their own community activities.
The festival's variety of free activities for children will be on offer again next year, making the whole day an occasion for the community to come together.
Musicians should keep an eye on the Sale Music Festival website for application details in the weeks to come.
The festival committee has begun meeting with Wellington Shire Council to ensure that, as the planning continues, the requirements and restrictions as issued by the Victorian government and the Department of Health and Human Services are adhered to.
While Sale Music Festival 2021 is dependent on pandemic restrictions, the committee is optimistic that the ninth festival will go ahead.
