Lamb & Potato Festival willbe back in 2023

14th Dec 2022

It is great to see that the Lamb and Potato Festival will be back in full swing in January after several years of COVID interruption. The festival will be back operating on the New England Highway commencing on Wednesday the 11th of January and closing on Monday January 23rd.
The site will be open every day from 7.45 am until 7.30pm and will feature great festival food and coffee, over 30 stalls to browse, train rides and local Arts and Crafts.
There will be quality live music performances each lunchtime and evening. On Saturday January 14th there will be a strong country influence with Bruce Clark, Jim and Barb O’Neill, as well as the Guyra Line Dancers.
That night locals will get a chance to reveal hidden talents at the Festival’s first Karaoke event. Sunday the 15th will have a multi-cultural focus with the Barney Street Band, Belly Dancers and Chilli Jam.
On Saturday 21st you can catch the Car Show and Shine in Bradley Street, the Antique Machinery Rally and Model Trains. You will be entertained by the Glen Innes Pipe Band, a lunchtime show by Crooked Tree and an evening performance by Terra Firma.
Things will settle back a little on Sunday the 22nd with the Woodworks string quartet in the morning, the laid back jazz of Dusky Buzz through the afternoon, followed by Gospel music by the Church of Freedom. That evening Festival favourite Peter Denovan will return - he always puts on a great show.
The Festival committee hope to see the festival attract many visitors to Guyra to stop and explore what the town has to offer. They also hope to see locals supporting the Festival and enjoying its many attractions.
