Roll up! Roll up! One of the region’s most iconic events is on this weekend – the annual Mudgee Show and Rodeo.
The Mudgee Show puts our region on exhibition, promoting our region’s fine produce as well as the talent of our local craftspeople, and the expertise of local animal husbandry.
This year’s jam-packed two-day event will feature everyone’s show favourites with popular rides and sideshows, reptile displays, juggling, a lumberjack show, and a busy program of ring events and colourful pavilion displays.
The rodeo will also be back for another year, after making a return to the show last year, and there will be some great prizes up for grabs including: the $1200 Iverach Volkswagen Open Bull Ride, the $1000 Bronco Ute Trays Saddle Bronc, the $1000 Tyre Man Mudgee Bareback, and the $1000 Moolarben Coal Ladies Barrel Race.
The Mudgee Show has been running since all the way back in 1846. Though there have been some few changes to the show over the years, it still remains a crowd favourite, with thousands of people heading to the show every year.
