Murtoa's Big Weekend
Murtoa’s Big Weekend 2021 Event Cancelled
The event steering committees of Murtoa’s Big Weekend 2021 (MBW2021) and the Murtoa A&P Show were recently faced with the hard decision cancel the event of Murtoa’s Big Weekend 2021 due to the overhanging lockdowns that COVID-19 has caused, for the second year running. The event was to be held 1-3 October 2021.
This decision to cancel the event was made a bit lighter when discussing the incredibly hard hours of volunteer input that is remaining. The quality of each event within the 3-day program requires dedicated planning to successfully deliver each event to the community and abroad.
Some events are still on offer for the community to be involved in, with the Scarecrow Competition still going ahead. This year’s theme is Movie or Fairy Tale character, which will provide fun for all ages and offers prizes for various categories. Please download your information and entry form to be involved. Also, the Murtoa A&P Show will be offering the Murtoa schools a Colouring Competition that will be displayed in the shops of Murtoa over the usual 3-day event dates of 1-3 October.
Looking forward to MBW2022.
The program includes tours of the National Heritage-listed Stick Shed, the 136th Annual A&P Agricultural Show, Saturday morning’s Monster Market, Murtoa Cup Race Meeting, Art Exhibition & Sale, Dunmunkle Sumpoilers Historic Engines display, the Water Tower Museum, as well as a host of other attractions. Murtoa’s Big Weekend also provides an excellent opportunity for all to experience the beautiful Lake Marma and Rabl Park surrounds.
