WELCOME HELLO AND WELCOME. THE FESTIVAL LOOKS GREAT THIS YEAR WITH A FEW NEW EXCITING ADDITIONS TO THE PROGRAM. AND OF COURSE, SOME TRADITIONAL FAVOURITES. IF YOU’RE A VISITOR, THANKS FOR COMING FROM NEAR AND FAR. WE’RE DELIGHTED TO HAVE YOU HERE AT THIS SPECIAL TIME OF YEAR. Ashley Lindsay GENERAL MANAGER CLARENCE VALLEY COUNCIL

To my fellow Clarence Valley-ites, how lucky are we to have this nature’s display of the Jacaranda trees in blossom on our doorstep? And a festival to celebrate it. I’m looking forward to seeing you out and about, make sure you come and say hello. I’ll be easy to find as I’ll probably be wearing a lairy jacket so you won’t miss me. Here’s to a fun festival for everyone. Happy Jacaranda!

YOU’VE CERTAINLY PICKED THE RIGHT YEAR TO COME TO THE GRAFTON JACARANDA FESTIVAL. IN A WORLD OF UNCERTAINTY IT’S ENRICHING TO KNOW THAT A FESTIVAL LIKE THIS STILL EXISTS. INCLUSIVENESS, IT’S NOT A SLOGAN, IT’S A WAY OF LIFE. FROM SHARING A MOMENT TO GREETING A FELLOW REVELLER WITH A “HAPPY JACARANDA”, IT’S TIME TO EXPERIENCE SOMETHING UNIQUE. Jeff Smith PRESIDENT GRAFTON JACARANDA FESTIVAL COMMITTEE

A massive thank you to all the passionate volunteers who make the festival happen. An obsessed Festival Manager, Mark Blackadder, and an equally obsessed Management Committee have brought it all together. I applaud all our local business and government partners who sponsor and support what the Jacaranda Spirit represents. For 10 purple days we will be sharing the dream of the regional life: music, food, dance, art and those spectacular Jacaranda trees. Jacaranda Queens to drag queens ... it’s where we all belong.

HISTORY THE IDEA FOR A FESTIVAL CELEBRATING GRAFTON’S JACARANDA TREES HAD BEEN PROPOSED SPORADICALLY OVER MANY DECADES IN THE EARLY 1900’S. AT A TIME WHEN THE WORLD WAS EMERGING FROM THE GREAT DEPRESSION AN IDEA TO ATTRACT TOURISTS AND VISITORS TO GRAFTON BEGAN TO EMERGE. IN DECEMBER 1934 NEWLY ELECTED COUNCILLOR, EDWARD CHATAWAY, PROPOSED A FESTIVAL FOR THE FOLLOWING YEAR. GATHERING LIKE-MINDED CIVIC LEADERS AROUND HIM, AND WITH SINGLE MINDED PERSISTENCE, CR CHATAWAY MADE THE FIRST FESTIVAL A REALITY IN 1935. HELD OVER TWO NIGHTS IN POUND STREET, IT INCLUDED MAYPOLE DANCING, A FLOAT PARADE AND COMMUNITY SINGING AND DANCING. THE EARLY FESTIVALS WERE BASED ON THE CORNISH FLORA FESTIVAL, HELD ANNUALLY TO THIS DAY IN HELSTON, UNITED KINGDOM.

Over the decades the festival has always been a reflection of the culture and the expectations of the time. Sacred concerts, candlelight vigils, raft races, school displays, rodeos, floral window displays, bathtub regattas, community dancing and gay taxi competitions were all popular events of their era. Incidentally, the only original event left from 1935 is the Float Procession (even it was cancelled in 1942 and 1943 due to wartime petrol rationing). As visitor numbers increased over the years so did the emergence of numerous affiliate events. Throughout the 1960s, 70s and 80s a proliferation of sporting and cultural events all played a role in filling out the program of activities. Additionally, community based craft groups, markets and organisations joined in to showcase their skills and passions over the festival. By 2014 the festival had grown into a marathon 16 day epic. This year our festival is a 10 day showcase of the unique, the quirky and the beautiful. It’s a time for our guests to experience, in all its diversity, everything that’s great about the regional lifestyle. The festival will always evolve reflecting our community and culture. We are returning back to what Cr Chataway originally intended the festival to be. It is a shared experience between locals and our guests, the celebration of the jacaranda trees.

REDUCE – REUSE – RECYCLE – RETURN

The 85th Grafton Jacaranda Festival celebrates the beautiful blossoming trees that were first planted back in 1897 by Henry Volkers, and through sound environmental stewardship and management we plan to celebrate the natural spectacle for another 85 years. A sustainable Jacaranda Festival helps protect our valley, our river, and promote even more pride in our local region. While at the festival we encourage you to REDUCE – REUSE – RECYCLE – RETURN

REDUCE your waste by using multi-use cups, bottles and containers. • Keep Cups are a great way to have your morning coffee. • Try not to buy single use plastic water bottles or bags.

REUSE drink and food containers whenever and wherever you can. • There are water fill stations in Market Square and Memorial Park for you to fill your BYO bottles. • If you need a straw consider using a reusable one.

RECYCLE all your waste through proper use of the many recycle bins placed throughout the festival. • Only put recyclable products in the yellow bins. • Encourage your friends and family to do the same as well.

RETURN and earn. • Return and earn bins will be placed in the Volkers Bar yard at licensed events for all purchased cans, glass and plastic bottles to be returned for recycling.

It’s cool to be kind.

“Decreasing…single use catering products and packaging… decreases the environmental impact of the event by reducing the amount of greenhouse gas emissions, water and energy used in the production process.” NSW Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

Proudly a sustainable event

FESTIVAL EVENTS

Inaugural Festival Artist Jaz Grady has always been heavily involved with local organisations and initiatives for youth and community throughout The Clarence Valley, and this year is no different with her role as the inaugural Feature Artist for the Grafton Jacaranda Festival. Jaz sees the Clarence Valley for what it is and draws inspiration from it to create her illustration work. Favouring the use of black markers and paint mops, her “switch off and draw” style flows in simple lines and phrases. Taking inspiration from those pushing the ideas of accessibility, institutionalisation and perceived values of art and mixing that with the feelings stirred in the current Australian youth culture, her art is for the people, by the people. You’ll experience Jaz’s art throughout the Festival as murals, park based sculpture and a fresh range of official merchandise. Paints for inaugural artists supplied by Inspirations Paints.
