Easter Saturday at Stuart Town – a day you’ll long remember!
Stuart Town’s Man from Ironbark Festival is shaping up to be a day of good food and good fun — well worth taking an excursion this Easter Saturday.
The annual festival is named for Banjo Patterson’s poem ‘Man from Ironbark’ — ‘Ironbark’ being to former name of the historic little village.
There will be plenty to see and do on the day, with a jumping castle, puppet show, merry-go-round and over 100 market stalls, including professional food vendors as well as community organisations to keep everyone well fed.
Sydney Trains will be hosting an Open Day at the historic Stuart Town Railway Station, with displays and information.
And the Lachlan Living Heritage group returns with their ever-popular re-enactment performances.
There will be rides available in a Cobb and Co Stage coach as well as by camel.
To go with the ‘Gold Rush’ theme this year, the special Prospectors Activity Centre will have demonstrations and activities, including gold panning and prospecting with metal detectors.
As always, a highlight of the festival will be the Street Parade, featuring vintage cars, emergency services vehicles, floats from various community organisations as well as the ever-popular convoy of decorated ride on lawnmowers.
Straight after the parade, the one and only Nigel Stanley, supported by Barry Dickerson and Mick Austin, will be rocking the stage at Moxon Park.
Noted NSW horseman Patrick Harris will be a welcome addition to this year’s festival.
The 2019 Man from Ironbark Festival is a truly unique family day out!
