Following last year's of the Tropical Garden Fair which was run by the Gardens' staff and supported by Territory Proud and Territory Made a meeting was held to discuss creating an annual event in the Gardens. As doing events is not core business for the Gardens' staff it was agreed that Territory Made would amalgamate with Territory Proud to create a new event and build a stronger organisation.
As a reult we have created 'Tropical Territory - A celebration of our Lifestyle' which is proposed to be held on September 2nd and 3rd subject to getting sufficient funding from Festivals NT. A wide range of Territory Proud, Made and Grown mebers as well as community groups, schools, government departments including local government and other interested organisations will be invited to share their passion and pride with the rest of the Top End.
Entry will be free and the cost of the stalls will be kept to a minimum so as many organisations as possible can participate. There will be competitions for for primary and secondary students and fun for all. There will be professional support for stall holders with some workshops on how to get the most from your participation in hte lead up to the event.
Expessions of interest are now invited. For further information or to express interest in a display please email firstname.lastname@example.org
