Oroua Country Fair

Bring your family to a fun filled, family day out at Kimbolton on Saturday 23rd March and enjoy the best of rural fun.

Watch the local schoolchildren compete in the Champion School Boat Race Challenge and the local village communities battle it out for supremacy to win the coveted Oroua Top Town Trophy. Teams will combine beauty, brawn, brains, and a certain degree of cunning to outwit the opposition in a battle to the end, involving wheelbarrows, hay bales, boats, water and flour bombs. Who knows what will happen in the mayhem.

The day promises the most fun you can have at a boat race without water.
Join in the fun, vote for the best dressed team and cheer on your favourite Top Town and Tug-O-War teams.

Have a go at the coconut shy, horseshoe pitching, caber tossing, sheaf tossing, gumboot throwing, farmers walk and crosscut sawing.

Cheer your children along as they have a go at the sack race, egg and spoon race, three-legged race, stick horse race, and other games.
Wander around the vintage cars, vintage tractors and vintage farm machinery and browse among the numerous craft stalls.

Gates open at 11:00 am with the action starting at 11:30 and continuing until 4:00 pm.
Entry fee $5 per adult, school children free.
Proceeds go towards Kimbolton Community projects.
