Clarence Valley Camp Oven Festival, June 10-13 2022
What do pillow fights, dirtgirl and great food have in common? The Clarence Valley Camp Oven Festival!
This June long weekend the Nymboida Camping and Canoing Centre will host the Clarence Valley Camp Oven Festival. Meet ABC star dirtgirl, her best mate scrapboy and Costa the Garden Gnome. While the big folk focus on the art of camp oven cooking, the dirtgirlworld crew will dive into their grubby bucket to offer a day of heart-led recovery for young families. Join their kid-friendly workshops, growing fire-ready families.
Flourish at the Camp Oven Festival
Flourish! is where games and nature scavenger hunts meet spoken word mashups and a pillowcase fight. Sounds like fun? Flourish! is a great way to explore how families can prepare their hearts, heads and hands for emergency events.
A Family Focussed Festival
Festival Creative Director, Laena Stephenson said this major addition to the festival program will appeal to young families looking for a great day out.
“We’ve noticed over the years that younger families from Grafton and Coffs Harbour tend to come along as day visitors,” she said.
“So this year, we’ve packed as much entertainment into each day as possible. On top of that, we’ve actually reduced the single day ticket price for families,” she said.
The dirtgirlworld crew will appear on Saturday 11th June with music, art and poetry activities beginning at 8.00am. More grubby fun workshops are scheduled for the afternoon, repeating on Sunday 12th June.
Costa the Garden Gnome is making a special appearance on the Saturday morning – catch him while you can!
Food Tasting + Live Music
The festival also features camp oven cooking demonstrations and competitions, with several opportunities to taste main course dishes and baked goods. There’s live music throughout the weekend, an art and craft area featuring rolling workshops and roaming street theatre acts. Fancy a cuppa? Try your hand at the billy boiling contest.
