What’s happening in January 2021?

22nd Dec 2020

January this year will be a little different in Guyra with the iconic Lamb and Potato Festival being curtailed due to COVID-19. This year’s event will be a one-day family fun day to be held at the Guyra Showground on January 23rd, from 9am to 4pm.
The event will condense many of the regular Lamb and Potato happenings into a single day including market stalls, food stalls, and entertainment.
Community groups are being invited to get involved and man a display stand to promote their group and what the town has to offer. Food vendors and service clubs are welcome to do BBQs or other food items. There will be a display of Classic Cars inside the ring at the Showground and a mobile stage will be set up with music all day. Children’s activities will also be included.
Entry will be by gold coin donation at the gate. For more details phone Steve Mepham on 0404 485 585 or Mark Werts 0407 583 170
The Guyra CWA Evening Branch will hold an Art exhibition, which will be open from Friday January 22nd until January 26th at the GALA Centre in Bradley Street.
