Our Vision for Cully Fest
About Our Vision for Cully Fest Moving Forward
About Cully Fest Vision
With the first festival done and dusted in 2016 we know we have a great product and we have learnt a great deal in our inaugural journey. Now we can't wait to share traditional Outback and Aboriginal cultures, music, skills, arts, crafts and stories, so they are not lost to future generations.
Cully Fest will continue to provide the vehicle and opportunity to listen, share skills, culture and stories whilst also providing a strong economic base for future development. We will strive to develop Cully Fest as the leading family friendly Queensland Cultural Festival.
A key part of our vision means Cully Fest will continue to provide young artists and performers of all disciplines a chance to showcase their talent and entertain patrons.
Cully Fest will encourage and support these artists by providing them with an outstanding opportunity to gain some exposure and practice in front of a live audience and encouragement from their peers.
Cully Fest will always maintain a culture of a laid back friendly event with a relaxed atmosphere where performers and patrons feel welcome and safe among friends.
To tell you a little about Cully Fest and its team, we’re small in numbers, but big on enthusiasm and we’ve got a driving passion for Queensland Outback.
Cully Fest is the brainchild of Peieta Mills, a Cunnamulla local who operates several key businesses on Louise Street in Cunnamulla – Out The Back Australia Tours, and Club Boutique Hotel. She’s accumulated a dedicated team to help bring her passion for her town to the world.
Basically, we love where we live in Queensland, who we are, what we do and we want to share it with the world.
Queensland's Outback has been through some tough times with drought, collapse of the wool industry, lack of industry development, the mining downturn, cuts to services and population shifts.
What's Great About Cully Fest
Along with our sponsors, event team and partners, we’re committed to developing cultural and performing arts, supporting emerging artists and Aboriginal culture and arts to every day Australians.
Events are a long term investment, they require a great deal of work and generally take 3 - 5 years to develop a good following however events are well documented to successfully be a tourism driver to regional areas.
We are on track to deliver our great Queensland festival 17-19 November 2017 Toowoomba Showgrounds.
We have been inundated with offers of support by positive people both professionals and volunteers who share our vision and want to see the festival grow and flourish.
