Blackbutt combats COVID in Bazaar Fashion

Despite the festival blackout because of COVID19, Blackbutt Avocado Festival organisers have been working to ensure that the Blackbutt Community can continue to fundraise, help support our local businesses and provide a safe place for our locals and visitors to get outdoors. A new event – TOP OF THE BLACKBUTT RANGE BAZAAR – an outdoor boutique and local produce market that will take the place of the beloved Avocado Festival in Blackbutt for 2020, with the first one held along the Blackbutt Rail Trail head on Sunday 4th October 2020.

The town of Blackbutt, located just 150kms north-west of Brisbane, has been growing the Avocado festival for over 10 years and is known for producing Avocados (and Blackbutt Timber, Small crops, Persimmons, Honey and Macadamia Nuts to name a few).

There will still be the opportunity for patrons to taste Avocado based foods, as the Blackbutt Avocado Festival will be holding a food stall and still a space for some of the famous Avocado games.
