Harcourt Applefest is in search of 2020 royalty!

Nominations are now open for the roles of Harcourt Applefest Royalty. That includes the headline royal couple, plus the supporting role of Granny Smith.

Applefest Royals serve as event ambassadors. They represent, celebrate and promote Applefest, connecting with the broader Mount Alexander Shire community to spread the word about Harcourt and the Applefest. They are important symbols of our premier annual celebration.

We’re looking for people comfortable representing Applefest at community events scheduled in the months running up to Applefest. They’ll get dressed up and play the part at the Harcourt Twilight Market and the Castlemaine Farmers Market. And of course, Royalty and Granny Smith will need to be available and participate in Applefest itself, Saturday 7 March 2020.

Former kings, queens and granny’s agree: It’s a great way to get to know people and to represent your town.

If you know the right royal couple or a zesty Granny Smith, nominate them right away! Self-nominations are also welcome: you can nominate yourself as an individual, or with a friend/partner as a pair.

Whether for yourself or others, you’ll need to fill out a nomination form:

Nomination Form

Print, complete, and return the nomination form to the ANA Hall before Sunday 1 December 2019. Or, find the Applefest reps at the Harcourt Twilight Market on the evening of Saturday 23 November.

Once received, nominations will be considered and Applefest Royalty will be appointed and officially acknowledged at the Harcourt Christmas Market on Saturday 21 December.
