Clarence Valley Camp Oven Festival

The Clarence Valley Camp Oven Festival will include the making of a memorial this year to commemorate the 2019 bush fires that affected the Nymboida and surrounds. The memorial will consist of 12 mosaic pavers that will encircle a tree planted in the Nymboida Camping and Canoeing Centre grounds.

Festival Creative Director Laena Stephenson said, “This project is one more step towards meeting our community’s need to memorialise, reflect upon and share their experiences with others. The tree will grow and what it signifies will benefit generations of residents and visitors alike.”

The mosaic will be created in a dedicated workshop space at the Clarence Valley Camp Oven Festival, which runs from 11th to 14th June. This allows both locals and visitors with a connection to Nymboida, to participate. The Clarence Valley Camp Oven Festival offers delicious food, live music, dancing and of course, camp fires!
