Busking Festival will boost tourism

Wonderful music will waft over Narooma at the Regional Busking Festival on Saturday 27 May, part of the Australian National Busking Championships (ANBC).

‘From day one Narooma’s business owners have been excited by the Festival,’ said Narooma Festival co-ordinator Sandra Doyle.

Easts Regional Manager Lyn Field is a Festival sponsor and believes the Festival will attract many people to Narooma who may have never been here before.

‘I think it’s a great initiative by Narooma Rotary,’ she said.

‘It’s something really different for Narooma, involves most of the town at a normally quieter time of year, and it works with local businesses.

‘We find once people come to Narooma they realise what a wonderful place it is and usually return.’

Mrs Doyle said the Busking Festival will be great fun and create a really colourful atmosphere with 29 Busking Hot Spots sponsored by adjoining businesses along Narooma’s main street, at the Plaza and at Quarterdeck.

‘We’re trying to encourage some of our many young talented musicians from Ulladulla to the Victorian border to take part, as well as attract buskers from further afield,’ she said.

‘There are some great cash prizes to be won.’

The ANBC has grown over the last six years from being held exclusively in Cooma to being a national event this year with regional competitions in Stanthorpe, Noosa and Ballarat, as well as in Narooma.

Winners from regional events will be invited to compete in the National Grand Final in Cooma in November.
