The festival held its inaugural event last year, and was deemed a “cracking success” by organiser Jacquie Stallinga.

The day is expected to attract visitors from across Victoria, with more than 60 stalls.

The Farmers Market will leverage off the event, hosting their first market day in conjunction with the festival.

“The farmers market is an exciting addition to the expansion of the day,” Mrs Stallinga said.

“We have 40 confirmed stalls, with more expected to book.”

The event will feature all things “new age” including: psychic readings, crystals, dream catchers, alternative healings and crystal jewellery.

Children’s entertainment and live music will also add to the day.

Lamine Sonko and his band will play on the day and run an interactive workshop.

Lamine is a culture keeper for his tribe and comes from Senegal, West Africa.

Mrs Stallinga said the band played at White Nights festival at Federation Square this year.

“He is a world class entertainer and is playing here in Wedderburn for no entrance fee,” she said.

“This is a remarkable opportunity to see a unique performance entertainer.”
