This year’s Man From Snowy River Bush Festival is set to be bigger than ever.
“We have sensed the enthusiasm by many locals surrounding the changes made to this year’s festival,” said board chair, Cameron Jackson.
“While we have had much support from volunteers committees and staff in the lead up to the festival, this year has also focused on welcoming back locals to join us celebrating our Australian Bush heritage, which will include Sunday beinga free day for all locals.
“We have also welcomed a new general manager, Melissa Rice, who has led the team to incorporate exciting new features to the program and all-round happenings at the festival.
“With the success of last years Ag Field Days, we are bringing it back this year and it is set to kick off at 9am on Wednesday April 12th at the former primary school grounds.
“We would love to see more locals join us this year and hope the weather holds for us.
“The bush festival plays a vital role in the Upper Murray Community and it is greatly appreciated that it is recognised as such by government and supporting bodies.
“The festival board and staff express their deep appreciation to the sponsors, patrons, volunteers, competitors and landowners. Without their contribution this festival would not exist.”
