Maitreya Festival at Wooroonook Lake in 2016 & beyond
After a successful event held in March 2015, the festival now seeks to gain a three year rental & permit agreement with the Buloke Council. A three year agreement will mean long term planning can commence, and the community plan for the benefits.
By signing the petition you can show your support to the council in making an agreement and issuing a long term permit for the event.
