A great opportunity for stanthorpe

The second Australian National Busking Championships™ (ANBC) Stanthorpe will be held on Saturday 24th February 2018 and during this event Stanthorpe will be the “Busking Capital” for the whole of the South East Queensland Region.  The Stanthorpe Rotary Club will be presenting this event in 2018.

Rotary’s aim is to make ANBC Stanthorpe an annual event which will benefit local businesses and the whole region.

The Australian National Busking Championships™ (ANBC) is now in its fifth year. During the first four years, the ANBC had been held exclusively in Cooma NSW, the picturesque and historic capital of Australia's Snowy Mountains. In 2016 Stanthorpe was selected as the first township to host a Regional Final.

The winners from our regional event will be invited to compete in the Australian National Busking Championships™ Grand Final in Cooma on the first weekend in November of each year.

Can’t find a package that suits you?

The Stanthorpe Rotary Club will also gratefully accept cash donations other than these sponsorship packages. This money will be used to defray the costs of running this event.

Non-cash prizes will also be gratefully accepted as they may be used in a raffle on the day (The Busker Dollars Lucky Draw). This is a great opportunity to advertise your goods and services at little cost to you. Maybe a “Romantic Dinner for Two”, a “Family Pizza Deal” or “Gift Vouchers”…just some ideas.
