The NOW Festival provides a fun and entertaining weekend offering 3 days of jam packed activities for the locals and festival attendees.  In amongst the events is the “Provincial Plate” fundraiser dinner held each year to raise much needed funds for the local Nagambie hospital.  This year in excess of $2,000 was raised to support the extension project.

Each year,  the NOW festival is organised by a committed team of volunteers who contribute a tremendous amount of hours and effort to ensure its success.  This year is no exception to their efforts with yet another successful event achieved.

Among the many events and attractions running throughout the festival, the Costa Community Canoe Challenge is one not to be missed.  The canoe challenge offers a unique opportunity for festivalgoers to meetand greet, or even compete with, some of our fantastic emergency services personnel.
