Agfest Field Days
Posted on 01 December, 2020


Thank You RY Agfest

Rural Youth Tasmania is thrilled that the Tasmanian Government has committed $300,000 in the 2020-21 State Budget to support the organisation and moving Agfest 2021 back to the paddock.

Agfest Chairman Ethan Williams said this hugely-appreciated funding provides surety for Rural Youth, our members and the many initiatives we provide to support and empower young Tasmanians.

“This money will also boost the capacity of the organisation to deliver the biggest and best Agfest field days back in the paddock and in the cloud in 2021,” Mr Williams said.

“There is no doubt that COVID-19 has been a very difficult time for Rural Youth and Agfest, culminating in the cancellation of Agfest in the paddock in 2020.

“We are now focused on delivering a safe and compliant event at Quercus next year. This funding underpins our ability to work with hundreds of Tasmanian companies to showcase their businesses, brands and products to generate leads and sales, stimulating our State’s economy.”

Mr Williams said that on behalf of all Rural Youth members, he extended his sincere thanks and gratitude to the Tasmanian Government for this funding.

“I have no doubt that hundreds of Rural Youth members will be performing handstands and cartwheels around Tasmania today.”

Agfest will be open to the public at Quercus on Oaks Road near Carrick from 5 – 8 May 2021, and in the cloud from 8 – 15 May.
