Karoonda Farm Fair
'Experience the Heart of the Murraylands'
The Karoonda Farm Fair is an annual 2-day event showcasing local, state and interstate farming and general interest products, services and events. Based at Karoonda in the heart of the Murraylands region, the field day is centrally located and enjoys a broad visitor base from throughout South Australia, as well as interstate.
With over 350 exhibitors each year, the field day attracts crowds of around 10 – 12,000 over the two days. The Farm Fair focuses on primary production and associated industries.
Besides the great line up of businesses displaying a vast array of products, we also have many interesting entertainment events during the Field Days e.g. Karoonda Yard Dog Championship, Speed and Sports Shearing, Children’s Entertainment, Ram Display, Whip Cracking, Photographic Competition, Mallee Farmer’s Challenge, Fashion Parade and Junk 2 Funk Parades.
A large Lifestyle Pavilion will cater for all indoor exhibitors and will include clothing, cosmetics, craft, computing, children’s toys, gardening products. Also included will be Education & Government Depts. finance advice, health departments and alternative industries throughout the Murraylands region.
Regular exhibitors to the Karoonda Farm Fair often remark how friendly and co-operative the “Mallee” people are.
We extend this same hospitality to all new exhibitors and look forward to your participation at the 2017 Karoonda Farm Fair.
Business as Usual
At the 2016 Farm Fair we were presented with a very wet and soggy ground that was beyond our control.
Council decided to ban all heavy machinery vehicles and narrow tyred forklifts from the oval – unworkable
After some strong lobbying and protesting commonsense prevailed with a much more workable solution reached.
While we have some restrictions they are workable by rearranging site layout and hopefully watering will be better managed.
Next year’s event will be held on Friday March 30th and Saturday April 1st.
AGM: Tuesday June 28th - for more information please contact the Secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org)
