Quaama MayFair, Saturday 2 May – a celebration of autumn. And dogs!

Preparations are under way for our autumn fair and it’s to be a MayFair, but in a southern hemispheric, Quaamesey way – a celebration of autumn. And dogs!

There’ll be market stalls, music, verandah talks and a maypole for the kids. Competitions – Cooking with Apples, Cooking with Herbs, Oatcakes and the ever-popular Preserves. And a Decorated Hat/Garland Competition. And photo competitions too – one competition for photographers and one for the rest of us, of the “Where Is This???” variety where you must identify a local landmark. Prizes all around!

And here’s a first for Quaama, and you may well ask why no-one thought of it before in a town so full of furry friends… a Dog Show! With prizes too. Quaama’s canine mascot Quigley is yet to decide on the categories but Waggiest Tail will be among them, you can count on it!

As usual the Progress Association will be serving tasty Quaama Quisine – lunches, snacks, tea and coffee – from the kitchen. And the regular Trading Table will be available if you have stuff to sell but not enough for a stall of your own.

If you’d like to have a market stall, please email or call Glennda on 6493 8414. And watch for more information on the website in the weeks to come.
