Peony Festival set to take off

17th Nov 2020

The date has almost arrived and our little town is poised to welcome many visitors to our main street for the Peony Festival. The peonies are well and truly blooming and we are set for a great day out in Guyra.
Starting with the Guyra Farmer’s market at the Australian Poetry Hall of Fame. Many new stall holders will be setting up for the first time making this the largest market to date. Our three museums, full of memorabilia, will be open throughout the day and well worth a look. There will be coffee, buskers, antiques, food stalls and service club raffles in the main street. 
Peonies will be available for sale at the Woolly lamb and from Donna’s flower cart in the main street. The Armidale Symphony Orchestra will be performing at the Australian Poetry Hall of Fame in the afternoon and you can grab a burger and a coffee at the Mother of Ducks Lagoon after the recital.
This is a COVID-19 safe event and Peony marshalls will assist with social distancing and contact tracing measures throughout the street. Most shops will be participating and open for business so come and support your town and enjoy all that is on offer for the day.
This event is proudly brought to you by BIG ideas Guyra, with support from the Guyra and District Chamber of Commerce and the Guyra CWA Evening branch. We thank all of the participating businesses for supporting this idea and for the many hours of planning from dedicated volunteers and community-minded people who simply wish to see our town thrive.
