About Toodyay Festivals Inc

For a nearly a decade Toodyay Festivals Inc (TFI) has been working quietly behind the scenes to kick-start local festivals and events.

A Community Idea

Co-founded in 2009 by Jasmin Devlin, Angi McClusky and Andrew McCann, TFI has nurtured the community-run Moondyne Festival and privately run Fibre Festival, Bush Poets and Yarnspinners, and Toodyay Farmers Markets.

Umbrella

TFI graduated to promote events through mentoring local community groups under an incorporation and insurance umbrella. Now it is about to deliver start-up packages to expand new ideas into great events.

Tailored Packages

TFI's well-trialled resource base and individually tailored packages will give community members the confidence to expand and establish their idea in the events calendar.
