Event Time: 10am / Event Location: Merriwa NSW

With rides, Art Show, games, team penning, Quilting display, dog high jumps, whip cracking, clowns, stalls and lots more to see, the day is set to entertain.

In 2015, the Festival will include The Sheep Yard Dog Trials; Bush Poet’s Breakfast; Circus West; Team Penning and Whip Cracking competitions; Croc Stars Reptile Show; Laser Tag; ROAR Petting Zoo; and the children’s amusement rides. Sponsorship and donations large or small all benefit the community in holding this event and without such support these events may not go ahead. Each event adds to the atmosphere of the weekend and allows thousands of people the chance to experience country life and the hospitality Merriwa has to offer.

Finishing the day off with KaBoom letting their fireworks off at 6.15 pm at the show ground.
