A great opportunity for stanthorpe

The second Australian National Busking Championships™ (ANBC) Stanthorpe will be held on Saturday 23 March 2019 and during this event Stanthorpe will be the “Busking Capital” for the whole of the South East Queensland Region.  The Stanthorpe Apple & Grape Harvest Festival will be presenting this event in 2019 as an off year event.

The Festival has made ANBC Stanthorpe an annual event which will benefit local businesses and the whole region.

The Australian National Busking Championships™ (ANBC) is now in its sixth 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.

The Apple & Grape Festival will also gratefully accept cash donations other than these sponsorship packages. This money will be used to defray the costs of running this event.
