Maleny Eco Creative Festival

a NEW type of festival will arrive in Maleny this month, in a move close to organisers hearts.

The Maleny Eco Creative Festival, celebrating waste to art and specialty vintage will bring artists, designers and makers together from Friday March 31 to Sunday April 2 at the Maleny Community Centre. 

Creatives who work sustainably, naturally, recycling, remaking, growing and any other practice that has an Eco theme will be on display.

Qld Artisan Festivals and Events, who are the organisers of the popular Maleny Handmade & Artisan Markets and the Cooroy Handmade & Artisan Festival, are the organisers of the unique event.

“For our new event at the end of March, we will host extraordinary creatives stallholders or exhibitors who are makers, artists, designers, cooks or growers incorporating a sustainable or ‘Eco’ approach to their art, craft or business,” event organiser Nicole Hilton said.

“This includes, and not limited to, art and Artisan products from waste or found items, food items grown from sustainable practices, art from recycled products, items that can be recycled when no longer in use and creative repurposing.”
