The Spring Fair just got bigger and   has some competitive activities ! Rock bands from local schools will be competing in the inaugural Loreto Normanhurst ‘Battle of The Bands‘ which is sure to be very enjoyable as will the new ‘Young Farmer Challenge’.  So  tune up your guitar and dust off your RMs! And …. we will have a Build-a-Bear stand and a fun photo booth – thanks to all our sponsors!

Young Farmer Challenge

Cowboys and cowgirls pull on your hats and boots as Loreto Normanhurst launches its very own Young Farmer Challenge at the Spring Fair this year.

It is an event that imagines the practical roughness of living out in the bush paired with the competitiveness of a relay with plenty of impressive prizes up for grabs!

Sign up on the day with your team name and 4 fellow team mates. You will find us opposite the Boarders’ Farmers Market.

Click here to download the flyer. 

Primary students can also join in the fun!

The first 12 primary students to register will be put into three teams and will compete against each other in the Primary Division of the Challenge. Parents of primary students will need to return the permission form to the Primary School by next Wednesday 30 October.


We are delighted to announce that a FURbulous Build-A-Bear Workshop Experience will be at the Spring Fair!

Bring to life your very own “Lil Cub” by participating in a fun heart ceremony! Your new furry friend will be pre-filled with just the right amount of cuddliness, ready for you to bring it to life by adding your very own heart and personal touches in the fun-filled, hour-long session.

Your bear will also come with their own birth certificate becoming an instant family member plus cub condo to take it home in! Only $10 per guest. Places are limited.  Book now.

You will find Build-A-Bear at the Development Stand. 

Pre-purchase your rides!

It’s “thrilling” to save on the day by pre-purchasing your rides in advance. Ride tickets will also of course be on sale on the day.
