ANOTHER 52 exhibitor sites are now up for grabs after the Rotary FNQ Field Days committee announced stage two this week.

Rotary FNQ Field Days chair Pauline Spackman said after a thrilling rush of bookings, only a handful of the 298 sites originally offered under stage one are left for hire at Kerribee Park Rodeo Grounds.

“It’s just been non-stop,” she said.

Just seven powered sites remain under stage one, adding some extra convenience to those exhibitors wanting to go all out at Field Days this year.

Mrs Spackman said while most exhibitors who had booked so far were returning after a successful showing at Rotary FNQ Field Days in 2015, there were a few new and exciting businesses and organisations ready to strut their stuff.

“The RACQ are bringing up their big semi-trailer and Herberton’s Historical Village is going to bring down one of their vintage tractors for display,” she said.

The stage one and two sites will add to the separate 36 market stalls, 28 cattle stalls and 12 “inventors sites” at Field Days this year.

“We’ll be really happy if we get stage one and stage two full,” Mrs Spackman said.

“It’s first in, best dressed. If you want a site, there’s plenty to choose from, you’ve just got to get in early.”

For the first time in its history, Rotary FNQ Field Days will be run over an action-packed three days in 2017.

“Everybody is really excited about Field Days going over three days,” Mrs Spackman said.

“All the exhibitors seem really happy.”

About 18,000 people passed through the gates at Rotary FNQ Field Days in 2015, with all indications pointing to a repeat of that number this year.

Crowd favourites such as the popular Rotary John Deere Tractor Pull and Vintage Static Tractor Display will also make their return.

Mareeba Tyrepower, MSF Sugar and Mareeba Mazda are the major sponsors of Rotary FNQ Field Days 2017.

A biennial event, Rotary FNQ Field Days will be held between May 24 and May 26, 2017.
