Expressions of interest close Friday 25 June 2021
NAIDOC in the North is a celebration of the strength of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture through songs, stories, dance, art and ceremony. The whole community is welcome at this free, family-friendly event which will also feature children’s activities and entertainment throughout the day.

- The Canberra community to come together to celebrate and learn about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture.
- Community collaboration and participation to enhance community capacity and a sense of belonging.
- An opportunity for the community to connect with service agencies and gain information that supports their individual and family roles.
NAIDOC in the North is a COVID safe event. Please read through the COVID Safety guidelines for stallholders to ensure that your plans are appropriate. Stallholders who wish to conduct anything outside these guidelines must submit a COVID Safety plan for approval before proceeding with their activity.

Pricing and inclusions
Organisations may apply for a single stall (1x trestle table and 2x chairs) or a double stall (2x trestle tables and 4x chairs). Trestle tables and chairs will be provided by NAIDOC in the North. All stalls will be located indoors in the Fitzroy pavilion at Exhibition Park in Canberra.
There is no fee for businesses and organisations which are run or managed by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, or for organisations which are run entirely by volunteers. For all other businesses and organisations, there is a $60 fee to cover the cost of administration and equipment rental and setup/pack down. Invoices will be sent once your stall has been approved by the event committee. If this fee is a genuine barrier to your participation, please contact us to discuss.
Power is available to stallholders for an additional fee of $20. Stallholders are responsible for ensuring that all electrical equipment has been tagged and tested, and all power cords are safely secured for the duration of the event.
All stallholders must have their own public liability insurance and this must be submitted with the stallholder application form. Organisations who do not submit their insurance certificate will not be eligible to participate in the event.
