Does the festival accept food vendors and market stalls?
Thanks for wanting to get involved but SPRINGTIME operates in a precinct with a heap of good restaurants, cafes and bars. As a result, it’s unlikely that additional food vendors and markets stalls needed.

As of 1AM AEST on 14 April 2022, the requirement to check-in and to be fully vaccinated in a range of venues and events came to an end. This means under the current health directive, SPRINGTIME attendees will no longer be required to show proof of vaccination for venues including indoor partnered sideshows.
If at any point Queensland Government requirements change, we will update you via our SPRINGTIME channels.
Is SPRINGTIME a COVID safe event?
We work hard to ensure that our Festival adheres to all Queensland Health COVID requirements. The health and safety of our attendees, volunteers and team is our top priority.
