BECOME OUR OFFICIAL CHARITY PARTNER

Agfest Field Days is again excited to offer a not-for-profit charitable organisation a free site at the 2019 event. Our preference is given to applications that benefit local communties within Tasmania and build the capacity of young people.

You will also have the option to increase your site size at the Charity’s cost and order additional passes if needed, however this will be at you own cost. We will also donate 50c from each transaction made through our event ATMS to your charity after the event.
