So, what is the Riverina Field Days all about and why is it so important to the community?
This region produces quality food and fibre products and is widely known as the ‘food bowl’. The Riverina Field Days is the perfect opportunity to showcase what’s new in farming, best farming practices, new technology, and a networking opportunity for farmers across a vast range of industries. It boosts our local tourism economy, with people travelling from far and wide, most staying a night or two.
The annual event is so successful because of the right combination of exhibitors, family & kids attractions, entertainment, food and demonstrations. The Riverina Field Days has become an event on Griffith’s calendar that people look forward to and is only field day being held in the M.I.A. We are grateful for the ongoing support of our Major Sponsor since 2007-Wine Grapes Marketing Board. In 2019 they continue to be major sponsor but under the new name of Riverina Winegrape Growers.

History of The Riverina Field Days
The Riverina Field Days evolved from a field day which had previously been held at Yanco from 1988 to 2006 and was owned and operated by local Griffith media interests WIN Television & Radio 2RG, Griffith. The Riverina Field Days are always held on the second Friday & Saturday in May each year.
In July 2006 the event found a new owner, new home and was given a new name ‘The Riverina Field Days’ and is now held at the Griffith Showgrounds under the auspice of the Coro Club. The Griffith Showgrounds became the ideal venue as it provides a great deal of infrastructure already in place- with ample room, parking, toilet facilities, power and more. The Coro Club contributes a generous fee to the Griffith Showground Trust each year for the use of the grounds.
Since moving the event to a new area with a much larger population base, the event has seen a marked increase in crowd numbers year after year.
Wines Grapes Marketing Board have been a proud major sponsor since the move to Griffith and continue to be the Major Sponsor for 2019, under a new name of Riverina Winegrape Growers.
The Riverina Field Days is the only field day being held in the M.I.A.
