Mudgee Show + Rodeo this weekend!

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.

Mudgee’s Masterchefs!

We’re so proud to be part of a community that produces some of the best fresh food and wine in the country, now we can add to that the fact that we have some esteemed home cooks that have put Mudgee on the map yet again!
You may have read in the Mudgee Guardian on Monday that several residents of the Mudgee region have had their recipes published in The Country Show Cookbook: Home Cooking. Pitted against other show contestants, the competition would no doubt have been incredibly tough.
We would like to say a huge “congratulations” to Shirley Tunnicliff of Rylstone, Carolyn Cannon of Glen Alice and of course Carolyn Emeny of Mudgee who between them have 6 recipes published in the cookbook.
According to the Guardian article “The Country Show Cookbook: Home Cooking” cookbook was released at the Dubbo Show and copied are available here in Mudgee by contacting Carolyn on 6379 7718 or emailing info@wheelygood.com.au.
Proceeds from the sales of these cookbooks go to fundraising efforts for the show societies throughout New South Wales.
If you’re looking for some great home cooking recipes, you can’t go past something that’s been produced by locals! So for everything from hot winter soups to baked goods and barbecues, make sure you contact Carolyn for your copy today!
