To coincide with Queensland’s Heritage Month, an eagerly-anticipated family festival will return to Logan City so locals can enjoy a glimpse of the region’s history.

The Time Before, Logan’s historic festival, will be held at Mayes Cottage and the Kingston Butter Factory this Sunday 4 May from 10am to 2pm.

Previously known as Mayes in May, Mayor Pam Parker says the festival is a step back in time and a chance to experience Logan’s colourful history.

“Mayes in May has been a highlight of the calendar for people in our city for many years,” says Mayor Parker.

“While the name of the festival may have changed, what hasn’t is the Council’s focus on delivering a family-free free event that so many in our community love.”

At Mayes Cottage, visitors will find museum displays, guided tours, horse and carriage rides, face painting, an animal farm, tomato planting, pig racing, sheep shearing and country music on offer.

Market stalls will provide food and beverages, and a free shuttle bus will run throughout the day from Kingston Butter Factory.

The Time Before is funded through the Australian Government’s Your Community Heritage Program.

“Thousands of people join in the fun of the heritage festival every year,” says Mayor Parker.

“I am looking forward to building on this number and seeing even more people join me at Kingston Butter Factory.”
