The STAXAFUN Fete & Market Day is an annual event run by Belgrave South Primary School community. In 2018 the STAXAFUN Fete will be held on Saturday 24th March.

The fete is our Primary School’s key fund raising activity of the year with funds from 2017 Fete enabling us to refurbish our Science Discovery Centre, purchase additional digitial learning devices and literary and numeracy resources for use across the school.

The fete is supported by many community organisations on the day and attracts more than 2000 visitors. It’s a great time for locals and visitors to meet and enjoy the true hospitality of the hills.

The Fete’s key attractions are: Amusement rides (dodgems, roundup, dixieland chair swings, auskick specky & giant inflatable slide), auctions, live music, arts & crafts (face painting, mysterious magician, nimble balloon artist, children’s craft area, etc.), market stalls (trash & treasure, 2nd hand books & clothing, DVD’s, show bags, plants, etc.), food and drink (devonshire tea, cafe, BBQ, sushi, licensed bar, fairy floss, hot dogs, homemade cakes, etc) and much more….

MAIN STAGE: Headlining at this years STAXAFUN Fete is the WALKER STREET cover band.

The song list of WALKER STREET includes well known and loved songs from the 1960s through to 2015! They will certainly have you up and dancing. With demonstrated musicianship, natural harmonies and engaging personalities, the result is indeed greater than the sum of the parts. All four members take turns to lead the vocals and are well supported by the others in the band.

AMUSEMENT RIDES: So what’s the STAXAFUN Fete about if not fun:

Amusement ride prices: purchase a STAXAFUN amusement ride wristband to get unlimited access to all rides, that’s right Unlimited! Wristbands go on sale from mid-March, with prices unchanged from 2014:
