 Walcha Mountain Festival – Free entry and so much to see and do!

The Walcha Mountain Festival has so much to see and do!  Come and enjoy the festivities, with something on offer for everyone and free entry.

Saturday 19th October centres around McHattan Park with the PKF Road Ride Challenges, Walcha Farmers’ Market, a Trash n Treasure market and the Walcha Billy Cart Derby, followed by live music at the Royal Café.

The quilt exhibition will open on Friday night in the Langford Woolshed and remains open both Saturday and Sunday from 9am – 4pm, with proceeds going to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.

On Saturday night the hilarious Faulty Towers Dining Experience comes to historic Langford House. Doors and bar open at 6.30pm, the show starts at 7.30pm with Basil, Sybil and Manuel serving up a 3 course dinner and plenty of laughs.

Unwind on Sunday 20th October at Langford House, meet up with friends, bring along the family and enjoy free entry and free activities for children.  There is a great line up of market stalls, delicious food as well as Devonshire Tea in Langford.  Display exhibits include Defence Model ships, classic cars and motorcycles.  There are guided tours of historic Langford, roving magic, and the amazing innovative garments with the Fleece to Fashion Awards parades.  “We are very excited to have SNEZ, as our live music act this year.  With a pop, folk genre, her music has been described as beautiful, artistic and soulful” said Tourism Manager, Susie Crawford.

Free children’s activities include a magic show, rock climbing wall, jumping castle, face painting and bush croquet.  Our guest magician, Julian Bull from Sydney, will be wowing audiences with his magic show as well as doing roving magic throughout the day.

For the bike riders there is the PKF Road Ride Challenge on Saturday as well as a Backroads Bike ride organised by New England Mountain Bike Club on Sunday, starting and finishing at Langford.

“It is a great day out and affordable with free entry and mostly free kids activities.  We hope that local farmers come in to forget about the drought and visitors come to see what a great little town Walcha is.  Come for an hour, a day or the whole weekend.  We’d love to see you there” said Tourism Manager, Susie Crawford.
