This is the first time I have applied for a stall at Woodford, what can I do to get accepted?
At Woodfordia Inc, we adore, what we do.
Woodford Fok Festival is a highlight event in our year. We wish for you to know we endeavor to have ‘the most unique, beautifully presented and welcoming’ atmosphere, our retail stalls are important facet of this. The folks who are passionate about providing the very best in what they create within their stall, show great proudness in their application and have a high level of professionalism with every step of the process, are the people we wish to work with.
It is a difficult job selecting stalls, especially for the folks who have put the required effort into their presentation of their application; we receive many more applications than we able to accept, when retailers do not put effort into this process, it is unlikely they will continue their journey with the application, this is a simple step.
This is our selection criteria:

Stallholders who have new and innovative ideas.
Stallholders who offer fresh, nutritious and wholesome foods and beverages.
Stalls that are bright and festive, with clean presentation and interesting appearance.
Retailers who provide ethically sourced goods with emphasis on quality and originality of stock.
Level of professionalism and experience.

Sorry, no, the total number of complimentary tickets as specified on our web application is the total number you receive.
How much are staff tickets?
If I buy a staff ticket and the staff member changes what do I do?
You can change the names on your tickets without incurring additional charges.
What do I do if my staff member doesn’t arrive at the same time as I do and I have their ticket?
You need to be responsible for your team and make some arrangements to meet them, please make sure your staff can contact you. You should email the tickets to your staff beforehand; this will make it easy. They must bring photo ID with them and have proof of the ticket. You are all responsible to take them to your designated camping area allocated to your stall in the Stallholders Camping Areas.
What happens if I arrive at the festival and I have left my tickets at home?
Go to the main gate with photo ID, your tickets can be re-printed. This may take some time, and we ask you to be patient, it is best to remember your tickets.
Can I purchase additional tickets at the gate?
Tickets will only be purchased online, we do not accept cash sales at the gate, if you require additional tickets, internet access and computers will be available at the main gate, please remember be prepared for a wait, if you do not have your ticket with you and photo ID.

Is there room to park my vehicle and set up a camp behind my stall?

Prepare to park the car in before your tent gets constructed, driving through or over your neighbors’ floor is not an option and not all areas will provide vehicle access. Once your car is parked behind your stall it needs to stay there for the duration of the festival.

The nearest banking facilities are in the township of Woodford. There is an ANZ Bank and Post Office. You will find other banks in Caboolture or Beerwah, it is best to check with your bank.
Be mindful that there are public holidays falling over the festival period.
Mobile banking systems can be used as your point of sales
Do you get much theft, do you supply security for my stall?
We have had occasional instances of theft and we ask stallholders to be vigilant and report any instances of theft to either the stalls manager or patron hotline as they occur.
If you have valuables in your stall it is a good idea to lock them away, please do not leave valuables or money overnight, as much as we wish this does not occur at Woodfordia, we are sad to say it has in the past. If you feel uncomfortable or something feels not right ring the patron hotline asap.
