The 2016 Riverina Field Days saw our 10th Anniversary at the Griffith Showgrounds and with over 250 exhibitors this was another great successful event.
The 2 days attracted more than 15,000 people through the gates over the 2 glorious sunny days, and they were entertained by a range of spectacular events, from Cooking demonstrations with Melina Puntoriero, showcasing the Lamb industry and feeding the strong crowds eager to taste the BBQ’d Lamb, The Hawkesbury Kelpie dogs demonstrating the techniques of training the dogs and also allowing the kids to pat the young pups.
We increased the Food Court to have a larger range of food from Pizza, Pancakes, Hamburgers and Coffee, which all the crowd were entertained by the nonstop entertainment on the Main stage, with young performers singing and entertaining to large crowds.
With so many exciting exhibitors showcasing their products from large machinery to the ladies household peelers everyone had something to show and sell.
With many of last year’s exhibitors already pre-booked, the 2017 Riverina Field Days will again be bigger and better as we continue to grow and introduce new and improved ideas and competitions.
This year we will again be showcasing the latest and greatest in Farming technology and innovations to the household and hobby farmers to see how they are able to perform their duties quicker and easier.
The Main Stage will have non-stop entertainers to entertain the patrons in the food court while taking a break and relaxing with a hardy meal or just a snack, the Kids will be entertained with comical characters walking around, kids rides and of course the Pony Rides and Old Kentucky Farm animals to feed and pat while the parents can shop.
This year will see the Arnott’s Bakery Truck make its way back to the event, there’s nothing quite like the taste of freshly baked tiny teddies, and while you are walking around the 300 strong exhibitors make sure you check out the Snake Pit, which will surely educate you on the dangers of the Australian reptiles.
The Coro Club Riverina Field days start on Friday 12th May at 9am to 5pm and Saturday 13th May from 9am to 4pm. Thanks to our major sponsor Riverina Wine Grapes Marketing Board.
