Drovers Camp Festival

22nd - 24th August 2008

Come in droves to CamoowealAbout the Drovers Festival...

Come and join us for a fun-filled weekend. Friday opens with a riotous street parade including humorous floats, musicians, horses and coaches culminating in a fun-filled night full of entertainment. All this takes place in the Ellen Finlay Park so bring your chair, rug or swag and lie back or join in the fun.

During the weekend, wander through our historical town and view the displays at the old Shire Hall and Freckletons Historical Store. Enjoy the top class art and photographic exhibitions and competition. Be entertained at the new Drovers Campsite, enjoy the traditional camp cooking, have a yarn with an old drover, listen or enter in with the bush balladeers and story tellers. To liven up the action, a Bronco Branding competition is on all weekend. There is plenty of fine food, company and entertainment for all!
