Barunga Festival has a long history and proud tradition of celebrating life and attracting people from far and wide.
Barunga Festival offers a unique and valuable opportunity for small businesses to showcase and sell their products, for stalls to provide nutritious food to the audience and for both non-government and government service providers and community groups to engage their clients.
The Barunga Festival Organising Committee invites groups and organisations to apply to have a commercial stall or an information booth at the 2018 Barunga Festival.
Barunga Festival is a healthy lifestyle event. As a family friendly event it is smoke, drug and alcohol free and a healthy food policy has been developed for the food vendors. A crowd of over 4,000 people is expected at the 2018 event.

The Barunga Festival Organising Committee will select successful stalls based on adherence to best practice principles and diversity of products. Selection of stalls is at the absolute and sole discretion of the Barunga Festival Organising Committee and decisions are final.
Night Patrol from Roper Gulf Shire communities will be in attendance and NT police will have a presence at the festival, however 24-hour security coverage is not to be expected. Stallholders may remove stock/equipment each night if you wish and it is suggested you remove expensive items and daily takings each night. Please ensure your stall is secured at the end of each day. All effort is made to secure the site but no responsibility will be taken for loss or damage to any person or goods whether or not that loss, damage or injury arises from the negligence of staff or agents of the Barunga Festival. It is the responsibility of Stall Holders to possess adequate property damage insurance for their own property used at the Festival.
It is the stallholder’s responsibility to provide lights, power boards and any leads for equipment. All items must be tagged and dated by a registered electrician, and be labeled with stallholders name prior to set up at the event.
10 and 15 amp circuits are available for Information Booths and Commercial Stalls. Power to information stalls is limited to major sponsors.
Parking and set-up
A Site map will be provided to successful participants. Vehicular access to stall areas will be limited to set up (pre-10am on Friday and Saturday) and pack down time (Monday morning).
Trainees (for information booths only)
In partnership with Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education, 30 adult students are available to assist you and learn from you on your stall. These students are completing the Defence Indigenous Development Program engaging with army skills, life skills, language, literacy and numeracy with the aim of getting into the army or into full time work in another area. There will be four mentors with them to assist and manage the trainee program. Reflecting the community development philosophy of the current committee and management, Barunga Festival Organising Committee would like stallholders to consider having a trainee on the stall. There is no need to pay these trainees and they are insured and hold Ochre cards.
