Tickets Still Available for this Weekend!

If you haven’t already got your tickets to one of Mudgee’s major annual events – Go Grazing – then you’re in luck because you can still get tickets, even though the event is on this Saturday!

If you’re a bit of a wine connoisseur or fancy a nibble on great foods made from locally produced goods, then Mudgee’s Go Grazing event should definitely be on your calendar! Not only will you find Mudgee’s regional wines from leading winemakers, you’ll also find some of the best matching foods to go with quality selections of red and white wines, not to mention the glass of bubbles you receive on arrival to the event.

Held this Saturday, 21st of April 2012 at the Mudgee Showgrounds, and at a very reasonable ticket price of $70 per person (plus $2 booking fee for online purchases), Go Grazing is one of Mudgee’s best food and wine events – we’ve always had fun when we’ve been there!

You can purchase tickets from the Mudgee Visitor Information Centre online or call 6372 1020. Click on the image below to visit the Mudgee Wine website for all of the information!

Other events in Mudgee this weekend:

Tickets are still available for Sunday’s Country vs City Origin match at Glen Willow Sporting Complex that we wrote about a couple of weeks ago – get your tickets here!

Plus there’s also the Mudgee Races on this Saturday as well – and we know very well that the Mudgee races are very popular, and a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon with friends.

What an action packed weekend we have here in Mudgee this weekend… never a dull moment!

Gooree Cup & Mudgee Dragons Weekend

We want to make a weekend of the Gooree Cup coming up in early May 2012, combined with first Mudgee Dragons home game at Glen Willow Oval the day before. Now that’s what we call a weekend of fun and entertainment!

Saturday the 5th of May is the Mudgee Dragons’ first home game of the season, and with the new developments that have taken place at Glen Willow, there’s bound to be a bit of a crowd. For those that are coming in to support the opposition, and for locals as well, it’s a great opportunity to stay on for the Gooree Cup race day on Sunday the 6th of May.

As part of Racing NSW’s “Saddle Up Sundays” campaign, the Gooree Cup is featuring all the trimming and pre-event glamour, including cocktail party, equine art exhibition, high tea and fashion parade, tours of Gooree Park Stud & Winery (sponsors of the event) and VIP race day lunch.

As part of the weekend of sport, local businesses are encouraged to embrace the atmosphere by decorating offices and shops in racing and/or Dragons theme during the week leading up to the events.

We would love to see the community actively promote the weekend of the 5th and 6th of May, and encourage family and friends to come along to support our local Mudgee Dragons team, as well as local racing at the Mudgee Racecourse. We’re passionate about both sports and hope to see you there! Now is the time to start organising travel, accommodation and what you’re going to wear or decorate your business in!

We’re Off and Racing – We Promise!

Well, last time we blogged about an upcoming race-meet it was called off due to massive flooding on the course. No excuses this time, though! Things are looking good for tomorrow’s race meeting and if you fancy a fun day out with friends then it’s the must-do social event in Mudgee this weekend.
 
The Hamilton island charity races happen every year and it’s not only a great chance to get out amongst it with your friends, it allows locals to support a great cause. If you’re not the racing type then there’s no need to worry, as usual there will be plenty of fun, fashion and live entertainment off the field to keep everyone entertained.
 
If you feel like ‘mixing it up’ (literally!) the head to Vinifera Wines this Saturday morning for their MP3 wars; get some friends and a short mp3 playlist together and battle your fellow revellers as you sip on fine Mudgee wine, eat delicious tapas and knock on for a few rounds of Croquet.
