Amazing Fun Parties & Events QLD!

Let me help you from start to finish create the Best Fair your School Has ever had!

I can help you with all your needs for your next SCHOOL FETE and deal with one person, myself with heaps of experience. From Marquee’s, Stages, Extra Toilets, Roving Entertainers, Carnival Food, Fire Works and FANTASTIC MAJOR RIDES to smaller rides which move people through the event and make your day so much fun. It’s all about the promotion of your event and getting the community and local groups involved!

First Step to planning as Fair!

“Are you going to have a Straight Hire Fete?”

This is where your school pays for rides, and then what ever money is made after that is in your schools pocket. You pay 25% deposit to hold the rides until your event, and then pay the remainder on the day after your event. OR

“Are you going to do a Percentage Fete?"

This is where the schools receives 20% of the money earned from the rides operator on the day

A Percentage Fete.

Past event information required for Percentage fairs:
  • How Many Students in the school?
  • What you Pre-sold armbands for and how many sold before the event?
  • What you sold on the day armbands price and how many?
  • What single price rides where on the day and how many tickets sold?
    Or if you have the amount the last operator gave you from rides the 20% can work it out from this.

Then we can work out a package of rides for your school to the same amount of your previous event.

With Percentage Fetes you pay $500 holding deposit to secure rides and amusements. This is refunded on the day of the event. It is up to your School to get those great pre-sold armbands sales happening before the event.

We recommend you start selling armbands 6 weeks out giving parents time to buy a few at a time if they have several children.


If supplier provides A Food Tent (including Set of Clowns with fairy floss and sno cones), your school receives 20% of the days takings.
PLUS then you get!
4 Free Sideshow games for you to run on the day for 100% profit to your school: To Create a Sideshow Alley!
Choices any of 4  following sideshow games:

  • Pitchburst Water Balloon Game – a great Dunk tank alternative! Get your teachers and principle wet!
  • Knockems
  • Milkcans
  • Trouble Horse Racing
  • Wak a Frog
  • Pick a Duck

Sideshow options – Subject to change without notice


Suggestion: Pre-sold Armbands $27 and on the day $35 single rides as above. We request that no other supplier of rides come into event without us knowing (This is Negotiable). It’s about making this Armband the best value for the parents to buy for the day giving their kids the best value in riding the rides!

We will provide all tickets and armbands and run ticket box with help from the school which would be fantastic, we have nothing to hide

Food Stalls -I can get food people into your Fair with you getting 20% back after event the more the better as this will get through all the line ups quick getting parents back to the rides with kids!

Setting a Date

This is very important to get the right time of year to get the numbers into your event. I would look at the First Half of the year as this time is not as busy and second half of year is always full on. The weather in the first half of year is not as hot as well. But as most school do they go for second half of year and this is the time all the sporting events for breakup and games is on so think about this seriously.

Another thing to take in mind is that you can have a Friday Night Fete which is great as the school gets all day to prepare for it. Can end the night with fireworks, you will get more community people into your event as well 3pm to 8pm.

The standard day time fete Saturday or Sunday time is 10am to 3pm which is a full sunny day of 5 hours of fun as well. With most of these times we can come in the night before and setup rides to get the community into knowing an event is coming.

If you can give yourself and committee around 8-12 months to plan a fete this is the best time to make sure it’s a successful event. Plus you can let all the families know its going to happen in advance.

The way to get families knowing the fete is coming is to have bring in days each week. For them to bring in items for your event so the school makes 100% profit. EG: Dry foods for hampers, Lollies for prizes, Softdrinks and water, to serviettes!

Have Meeting to confirm date and then start to confirm jobs for your committee members.

People to look after the following:

  • Rides and Amusements
  • Food Stalls
  • Entertainment
  • Sideshow stalls
  • Class Activity Stalls
  • Raffles
  • Armband Sales
  • Groundsman for event,
  • Collection of items from the families for event
  • First Aid, and more!

Next meeting confirm rides and amusements for your event and then let the kids know through newsletters and get the excitement happening.

Wet Weather Policy

This is always the biggest questioned ask by fete Committees. What happens in the event of wet weather?

We give you a wet weather time for your event and that mostly depends on when the setup is starting. Example: Your Fete is on Saturday 10am to 3pm we would give you a wet weather time of 6am on the day before which you can opt to call the event off. However, if your booking includes Major rides usually we setup the day before, therefore your wet weather time is likely to be 6am the day before.

Please don’t worry about this as we will work close with your school to rebook a suitable date asap if the weather is really bad. Most times if a busy time of year we try to do the following Friday or weekend if possible so food can be kept. Some schools have split the event and had the food run on the day booked and then do rides when weather is better.

We will work together to get the best possible result for your school.


  • All Suppliers have full liability insurance for when the kids are on our rides at your event.
  • All our staff have Bluecards and we are polite and friendly to all people on the day making it an enjoyable experience.

I will be here for you to call and ask questions every step of the way!

Look forward to planning with your committee your next School Fair!

Please call any time
