Fruitopia Fair day is the Tropical Fruits' annual family fun day. FUNdraising for the Erif Benham Memorial Land Fund, Fruitopia sees the GLBTI community gather their families, friends, pooches and picnic rugs for an outdoor extravaganza. With dog shows, kids games, great food, stalls galore, live music and a cake bake-off, Fruitopia welcomes spring with gay abandon.
The event is held at the Lismore Showground on a Sunday at the start of Spring, and is FREE entry (though donations are always welcome!).
