Tons of fun entertainment will be up for kids on the Channel 7 Main Stage including Queensland Urban Utilities ‘Water Warriors’ Live Stage Show, PJ Masks Live Stage Show, and Live Music from Hailey Calvert, and Pat Tierney.

In the Love Food Hate Waste Cooking Zone, fairgoers will learn how to become more conscious with food consumption as 31% of the average Brisbane bin consists of food waste.

Celebrity presenters including Matt Golinski, Sam Thaiday and Dominique Rizzo, and Alison Alexander, a Food Consultant from Queensland Food Fellow, will be sharing simple tricks to help transform the way you plan, shop, and eat. Such valuable techniques can significantly help you save up to thousands of dollars every year while reducing food waste.
