Forest Lake State School Fete 2016

Saturday, September 10 - 11am to 7pm - Kauri Pl, Forest Lake

Come and join us for a day of fun with something to appeal to the whole family at this year's Forest Lake State School Fete. Help us to raise funds to air-condition our Prep classrooms and build a permanent shade structure for our new senior playground.

There will be lots to see and do for all ages including a cent auction with a huge variety of great prizes, lots of stalls, food, entertainment, showbags, games, awesome carnival rides, a petting zoo and so much more. The fun begins at 11am and entry is free. The fete will conclude with a spectacular Fireworks show at 7pm.

The Fete will be held on the Forest Lake State School grounds - Cnr of Woogaroo Street and Kauri Place in the western suburbs of Brisbane. The school is centrally located just off the Centenary and Logan Motorways, with plenty of parking in the surrounding area. We'd love to see you there!

Stalls, Entertainment and Activities

There's a full program of fabulous entertainment planned for the fete! Come and see our impressive School Dance Groups, Bands and Choirs perform, along with community dance performances, activities and displays.

Bag a bargain at our legendary Trash and Treasure Stall, or good read from the Second Hand Book Stall. There's great prizes to be won on the Cent Auction. Try your luck on the fabulous Sideshow Alley Games including all your favourites such as Toss A Choc, the Bottle Stall, and Pick a Ticket. Put your cooking skills to the test by entering in the Cake Decorating contest!

Showbags are MUST at any fete. Ours will be bursting with treats and fun!

For the children (or young at heart) there's all the fun and excitement of the carnival rides, then grab a bite to eat for dinner from one of our wide range of Hot Food and Sweet Stalls. Finish off the day's festivals by staying for a spectacular Fireworks display at 7.00pm.

Food and Drinks

There are loads of great food stalls, including our Aussie BBQ which will be grilling up mouth-watering Steak Burgers and Sausages.

For lunch or dinner, the whole family can enjoy all the traditional Fete favourites including Hot Chips, Dagwood Dogs, Hot Dogs, Pies, Sauage Rolls, and Spring Rolls, and Butter Chicken.

Tasty lighter meals are also on the menu, highlighted by fresh Sushi, Salad Trays, Rice Paper Rolls and Wraps. Treat your taste buds to a range of delicious sweets such as Home-baked Cakes, Fairy Floss, Snow Cones, Popcorn, Fruit Sticks, and Choc Dipped Bananas!

To quench your thirst, drop into the Cold Drinks stall for a refreshing soft drink, mineral water or juice popper. Of course, we haven't forgotten about those tea and coffee lovers, with the Coffee Van brewing up sensational espresso coffee!
