Frost Fair gets under way on Saturday 30 June just after nine o’clock when the frost has gone! This family event in the grounds of St. Laurence’s church has always been part of the Arts Festival. The Barraba Band sets an upbeat festive mood and there will be children’s items throughout the morning. The Kids' Korner with lots of fun activities , as well as the jumping castle, is always a popular place for the children. There will be the usual myriad of stalls... bric-a-brac, plants, books, clothing, handmade and of course great home cooking. You need to be early to claim one of the famous sponges. Food stalls are very popular too with a choice of morning tea soup and the late morning/lunchtime BBQ. A Vintage and Collectibles Stall will have some surprising finds for everyone.
The Saturday afternoon concert at 1.30pm will conclude the Frost Fair and will feature the Inverell Male Choir with their varied bill of loved melodies and humour. The Thomas Jones Organ will also feature at the concert.
The Frost committee is a passionate group of Barraba locals, who are working hard to pull off a fabulous event.
