What to expect at AGFEST 2016


AGFEST 2016, which is run by young Rural Youth volunteers, is almost here and is promising to be bigger and better than ever.

Tasmania’s number one rural event is offering something for everyone with around 750 sites to visit (an extra 44 more than last year). 

A crowd of 60,000 people from across the state and further afield are expected to attend over the three days. 

Visitors can see craft, 4x4 demonstrations, equine demonstrations and, of course, there will be lots of children’s activities. 

Agfest’s vice chair Dayna Broun said that there will also be a fifth craft shed this year. 

“The equine expo is back in a big way this year, with a new revamped Olympus Feeds Arena featuring Bruce O’Dell who is nationally recognised within the equine industry. 

“We also have wood carving by Eddie Freeman and live demonstrations using chainsaws to make sculptures," she said. 

“The weather forecast is due to swing around, with less than 5mm of rain forecast for Thursday."

See you there!
