The Cabin Fever festival is seeking expressions of interest from local businesses to host events from July 13 to 22.

The 2017 program included Fondue by the Fire at Howard Park, a pop-up espresso martini bar at Sidekick Cafe, Blazing Brews at the Beer Farm, and Settlers Tavern Carpark Collective.

Festival co-director Brianna Delaporte said the festival exceeded expectations this year and she and co-director Erin Molloy were excited to start planning for 2018.

“We expected 2500 people to engage with the events across 20 venues this year, and ended up with 6300 attendees at 30 venues,” Ms Delaporte said.

“The festival is aimed at increasing local and visitor involvement in the traditionally off-peak period of winter, and providing a line-up of unique, one-off experiences that entice locals and visitors to take part.”

The directors will consider a mix of free and paid events. Businesses wanting to be involved can make contact via cabinfeverfest.com.au for a copy of the selection criteria.
