Join the 2017 Festival Organising Committee


Do you want to be part of one of the longest running festivals in NSW? Narrandera Shire volunteers – this is your opportunity.

Expressions of Interest are urgently being sought from local community members to be on the 2017 John O’Brien Festival Organising Committee.
As one of the longest running festivals in NSW, it is important to maintain the John O’Brien Festivals successful history with your help in 2017.
Membership of the John O’Brien Festival Committee will be on a voluntary basis. If you have a particular skill, or you have time and are willing, we want to hear from you.

There is a range of areas for volunteers to be involved. Use your organisational skills coordinating the parade, fundraising, arranging performers, running competitions and leading a team of volunteers or chairing meetings. Use your money skills to oversee the finances or for those that have a flair for publicity and promotion explore and use ways to attract visitors to the Festival.

Joining the John O’Brien Festival Organising Committee is a wonderful way to become involved in the community, learn some new skills and make new friends.

Expressions of interest are sought as this committee is appointed as a Committee of Council under the provisions of Section 355 of the Local Government Act, 1993 and it’s constituted with the powers delegated to it by Narrandera Shire Council.

If you are interested in joining the John O’Brien Festival Organising Committee, please submit your Expression of Interest to Council’s Events Officer, Narrandera Shire Council, 141 East Street, Narrandera NSW 2700.

The Expression of Interest forms can be downloaded on Council’s website: or hard copies can be collected from Council Chambers or Narrandera Visitor Information Centre.
