Yarramalong Valley Spring Festival events postponed and Yarramalong Valley Spring Show deferred for 2021
Organised by Yarramalong Valley Community Inc. the Yarramalong Valley Spring Festival is held annually in the first 2 weeks of spring.
The Festival holds many events showcasing life in the Yarramalong Valley and concludes with the Spring Show (The Fair) at Jack Gear reserve, sadly due to the Covid 19 pandemic many of our scheduled events have been postponed or cancelled for this year.
The YVCI committee has explored opportunities about how we could hold events however many of these including the Show are unviable. Thus, in the interests of public safety the committee has decided to defer the Show until 2022.
Whilst deferment of the Show is highly disappointing this allows us to sustain our Festival, preserve our resources and plan for a fabulous Show in 2022 when it is expected that Covid 19 restrictions are eased.
The Festival’s famous signature event. The fabulous Scarecrow Competition will run this year at dates to be advised, this event has proved to be very popular, with visitors coming from far and wide to view many imaginative, clever and amusing Scarecrows throughout the Yarramalong Valley.
One event that will still go ahead is the very unique 9×5 Art Prize staged yearly by the Wyong Creek Hall committee. While the usual display & sale to the public, of this very Australian art form that attracts artists from all states, will have to be postponed to a date yet to be determined, judging will still take place privately. Winners will be announced & shown on social media over the last weekend of October.
