2017 BOGI Fair

The 2017 BOGI Fair will be held at the Peace Hall, 102 McDonald Road Windsor (near the Albion railway station), on Sunday the 27th of August from 9am to 3pm. It will be the 31st Brisbane Organic Growers Fair.

There’s always a lot to see at the BOGI Fair, which spreads from the Peace Hall under the Albion overpass and into the neighbouring park.  Organic growers will be on hand to answer your queries along with an extensive selection of vegetable plants, herbs and fruit trees to fill available space in the garden.

Wander around our stallholders who will sell everything from seeds and seedlings to gardening tools. Pest solutions, organic fertilisers and additives will be available from our BOGI Shop, with organic seeds including many heirloom varieties provided from our BOGI seed bank and from Eden Seeds and Green Harvest. Organic gardening books will be available for sale at the fair.

Our knowledgeable speakers will catch your attention along with yummy treats at our café offering freshly cooked organic sausages, quiches, salads, cakes, tea and coffee. And the animal farm will be available to entertain the children.

The fair is free and welcomes everyone, even if you have never turned a spade in your life. Come in for a look from 9am and stay for the day which concludes with the produce auction from 2.30 in the afternoon. No pets please. Entry is free for all ages.

Check out the 2017 fair flyer, and the stallholders list will be available soon. We hope to see you at the fair.
