Dragonflies were flitting around town yesterday affixing Cairns Festival partner transfers to participating businesses offering discounts and special benefits to badge wearers – including Badge Partner, Ever After cafe in Lake Street is offering Cairns Festival badge wearers a free slice of cake with every coffee purchased.

From today Cairns Festival is giving away 1,000 Festival badges that provide a wealth of new benefits to anyone wearing the colourful emblem between now and the end of the Festival on 5 September. Participating businesses include restaurants, tour operators, boutiques, and cafes. Each is offering a special discount or incentive -- but only to people wearing the official Cairns Festival badge.
"Over two dozen local badge partners have signed on, with more being added each day," says Festival Producer Eric Holowacz.

"Besides celebrating the Cairns Festival season, people now have a reason to sport our badge and support local businesses at the same time," he said.

Cairns Festival badges are now available at no cost at the Festival Headquarters in City Place, the lobby of Cairns Civic Theatre, the reception desk of Cairns Regional Council in Spence Street, and the SeaFM reception at 68 Abbott Street.
