Mulbring will debut its first Country Fair on Sunday 3 April 2016 from 9am to 3pm at Mulbring Park, thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers.

The fair has been established as a result of the combined efforts of the Kurri Kurri District Business Chamber, NSW Rural Fire Service, Mulbring Public School and Mulbring Community Hall Committee.  

The events committee has been busy arranging an assortment of entertainment such as market stalls, garage sale stalls, craft activities, vintage and classic cars, Fire Brigade display, coffee stand, BBQ lunch and much more.  

Cessnock City Council has supported the event with $3,100 of in kind assistance for waste collection services, security bond and associated fees.  

“Council wholly agreed that this is a fantastic event worthy of support and the allocated costs will be absorbed as in kind within existing operating budgets,” Cessnock City Mayor Councillor Bob Pynsent said.  

“The fair will see to an increase in tourism and visitation to Mulbring from the Hunter and is a fantastic opportunity for the residents of Mulbring,” Cr Pynsent said.  

Committee member Carol Doherty said the fair developed from a great idea by the Rural Fire Service and the community has jumped on board.  

The fair has been made possible thanks to generosity of the Kurri Kurri District Business Chamber who has provided event insurance under its umbrella.  

“Working together as a community we are able to provide a great day for the residents of Mulbring and the wider area,” Ms Doherty said.  

The fair aims to raise money for the NSW Rural Fire Service, Mulbring Public School and Mulbring Community Hall Committee.  

The event is expected to attract 450 country fair goers and add another great community event to the Cessnock City calendar.
