The Tuppal Food and Fibre Festival is just seven months away, and organisers say now is the time for the wider community to get involved.
The event will centre around historic Tuppal Station’s woolsheds and will include a host of activities and attractions relating to food and fibre production and their uses.
Organising committee chairman Ross Bodey said the event had already gained significant interest, and predicted at least 30
With such a large crowd expected, he said the committee needed support and hands-on help from regional communities.
Festival details and how people can help will be presented at a public meeting at Tocumwal Bowling Club on Wednesday, March 26 from 7
Mr Bodey said the the public meeting was not just for Tocumwal residents.
‘‘It’s very much a whole community event and we’re looking for support from people in Deni, Jerilderie and Cobram, and everywhere in between.
‘‘It’s going to be a huge festival — we are very confident of getting in the vicinity of 30
The Tuppal Food and Fibre Festival builds on the success of the rejuvenation of the Tuppal Station shearing sheds and the re-enactment of Tom Roberts’ famous painting The Shearing of the Rams, which brought thousands of people to the iconic property in 2010.
From October 17 to 19 this year, the historic building will again come alive for the festival.
Activities and attractions will be centred around the themes ‘food and fibre’, ‘paddock to plate’ and ‘field to fashion’.
‘‘Displays and demonstrations of wool from sheep to garment, of meat and dairy from livestock to table, of rice and grain and fruit from field to market, of grapes from vine to wine, everything for human consumption from paddock to plate, all demonstrating the sustainability of modern farming practices.’’
