Profits raised from the Bendigo Book Fair will support the work of Bendigo Foodshare

Support the Bendigo Book Fair

After many years successfully running the Bendigo Book Fair, in 2023 the Y Service Club of Bendigo handed over the running of the Book Fair to Bendigo Foodshare.

From Easter 2023 the Bendigo Easter Book Fair will be coordinated and run by a group of dedicated Bendigo Foodshare volunteers led by Garth Keech. Garth and his wife Marg Keech are long term supporters of Foodshare and Garth has generously agreed to lead and manage the Book Fair on our behalf.

The Easter Book Fair will be held at YMCA Tom Tweed Stadium, Mundy Street, Bendigo from Good Friday to Easter Monday (7th – 10th April).

How you can help:


We need many volunteers to make the event successful and are calling on volunteers to assist. Complete the form below to register your interest to volunteer. Volunteer shifts are usually 2hr time slots, and there are various roles including EFTPOS/Cash operator, fillers to restock and counters 

Donate books: 

Book donations can be placed in the ‘book bin’ located at YMCA Tom Tweed Stadium, Mundy St (down the right hand side of the stadium). If people need help loading large donations, there are people on site from 8am to 9.30am Monday and Thursday who can help unload.
