Dark MoFo update for businesses

Information regarding street activities to coincide with Dark MoFo in Willow Court

What's happening in New Norfolk to complement Dark MoFo 2016? 

Red Street Lights:  From Wednesday, June 8, until Tuesday, June 13, streetlights in High St, Pioneer Ave, Ferry St and surrounds will turn red as part of the Paint The Town Red campaign. This may cause a slight decrease in lighting levels but will not impact the safety of road users or the general public.

Parking Restrictions:  On Thursday, June 9, to ensure the safety of the public and to enable activities associated with the opening of Dark MoFo in New Norfolk, there will be no parking allowed in High St (from Charles St to Burnett St) or Burnett St (from High St to The Avenue) between 5-11pm. Attendees will be encouraged to use Laskey’s car park from 6pm to walk from High St and Burnett St to the Garden Party at the Ladies' Cottage/Old J Ward. As these parking restrictions fall outside regular trading hours for most businesses there will be minimal impact on regular trade.

Fire Pots:  Council has approved the installation of several fire pots in selected places through the town centre on the evening of Thursday, June 9. These pots will be staffed at all times to ensure the safety of residents and visitors to the town.

New Norfolk activities during Dark MoFo:  Visiting entertainers and pop-up eateries will complement local businesses. Businesses are encouraged to open for longer hours, co-ordinating with the Dark MoFo schedule. Shops may like to place mirrors in their window displays to follow the Dark MoFo theme.

This is a great opportunity for businesses to have some fun and show off New Norfolk and enjoy the additional visitation that is expected during the Dark MoFo events at Willow Court.

Estimated peak business hours are:
  • Thursday, June 9, 6–10pm
  • Friday, June 10, 4-10pm
  • Saturday, June 11, 1–7pm
  • Sunday, June 12, 1–7pm
  • Monday, June 13 (public holiday), 9am–4pm
  • Saturday, June 18, noon–5pm
  • Sunday, June 19, noon–5pm
