The Rollingstone Community Association, the local Lions Club, and local businesses including Pace Farming, Accorsini Pty Ltd, Berra Farming, and N.Q. Paradise Pines put on the event.

With an ever-evolving format, of markets, workshops and music throughout the day, Pineapple Throw, tug-o-war, tractor pull and not so traditional games - pineapple de-topping competitions for the Men, Women and Juniors. plus kids activities and plenty of games, it is a fun family day in support of local farmers and the local community.
