New format for HLF Sunday

New format for Sunday

The Henry Lawson Festival Committee is introducing several new initiatives in 2019 to draw more people to the event and improve the visitor experience.

One of the most significant will be the closure of the main street on both Saturday AND Sunday.

The festival committee will be extending the Sunday car show to become a Motor Show along the entire length of the street as well as offering entertainment and street stalls.

The Grenfell Car Club will still be running their Car Show Competition with the Henry Lawson Festival committee encouraging other motoring enthusiasts bring their motorbikes, trucks, tractors and more along to have them on display...

The extension of the road closure was a safety requirement and the committee has embraced this as a positive opportunity to further promote main street businesses.

Henry Lawson Festival President, Alan Griffiths said:

"Visitors will be able to safely meander the entire street on Sunday, taking full advantage of the popular car display and Grenfell's retail offering".

This is a great opportunity for local businesses to benefit from the new format, offering sidewalk sales and shopfront activities.

If your business has a great idea that you would like to share with us, we'd love to promote it on our festival Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/grenfellfestival/
