High quality produce, goods and community information
The Gathering is a prime opportunity for your business or community group to sell your product or message to a captivated audience - anticipated to be around 5,000 (based on past events). We are seeking a diverse range of vendors that showcase Ipswich as a vibrant region - whether that be local produce and goods, cultural histology, or community networking.
In particular, the gathering is seeking a diverse range of Celtic and Highland inspired stallholders with the following offers:
Celtic influenced clothing, jewellery, gifts
Traditional highland food and beverage offerings
Traditional highland gourmet sweets and snacks to take home
Displays of cultural or historical significance
Genealogy services to trace ancestry
Celtic instruments, tartan accessories, tartan dog collars and accessories, etc.
Other high quality stalls will also be accepted. While not a requirement we love if you take the time to add some Celtic theme to your stall.
The Ipswich Turf Club is an ideal venue with lots of space for our stall holders. The Gathering will provide you with an area allocation in our fully fenced venue along with security. Bump in times are available from 3pm on the Saturday, and a bump out no later than 6pm on the Sunday. Trading hours are from at least 9am - 4.30pm on the Sunday. While the festival runs both Saturday and Sunday, the main event at the Turf Club is only on the Sunday.
Note: most stalls sites are on concrete and cannot be pegged into the ground. Weighting on marquee legs is mandatory for safety. Sand bags, weight plates or water containers are recommended.
