Does your small town have a calendar of events that you attend regularly? If not, do you wish it did? Conceptualising, creating and running events is no small feat and it requires a lot of hard work and passion.
My guest, Alli Walker from Walker Events has that passion and you’ll hear it today. Alli will give you just a little bit of insight into how she went from working in healthcare in Melbourne, to running events for thousands of people up in the snow town of Mansfield, Victoria. She talks us through some of the highs and lows and we talk about the economic benefits of events and how they contribute to tourism.
If you’ve had a treechange and are wondering how you can immerse yourself quickly into your new community - go seek out your local market and stick your hand up to volunteer some time. You won’t regret it.
If you’d like to get in touch with Alli or follow along with her events, head to Walker Events on Instagram. Mansfield Farmers Market is on the fourth Saturday of every month and you can check them out on Instagram or Facebook and you can also find out more about the Lantern Festival on Instagram.
Thanks for listening!
The Small Town Business podcast was recorded on the lands of the GunaiKurnai and I wish to pay my respects to their elders; past, present and emerging.
