Wollombi Valley Country Fair - Taste the History
Date: 6 and 7 November 2010
On the 6th and 7th of November 2010, historic Wollombi village will come alive with the second Wollombi Valley Country Fair.
A produce market featuring local fresh and preserved produce, arts and crafts, local wine tasting and food stalls and family games will help bring together three main events.
There will be street entertainment on both days including live music, Scottish dancing with pipes and drums, a Speakers Corner, Bush Poets, lots to eat and do for all the family. In the late afternoon before the parade, we gather the kids for a sausage sizzle and games.
Saturday from 10, the annual Wollombi Tavern Woodchop - featuring the Wollombi round of the NSW 300mm Standing Block Championship and 8 other categories with presentation of the Neville Craft Trophy in the afternoon and food and entertainment into the night.
At 11am on Saturday in St John's Church, join us for a special literary event, as local Hunter Author Elizabeth Donaldson talks about the life and art of Sir William Dobell.
On Saturday evening, children from local schools and other crafty community members will feature in the second annual Wollombi Valley Lantern Parade displaying paper and cane lanterns they have created in workshops or saved from last year. This proved to be far more successful than expected last year with a spectacular range of lanterns on display through the village.
On Sunday, Wollombi Endeavour Museum will hold their open day and an historic machinery display from collectors across the region. There will be post & rail fencing, stone carving and timber slab-cutting demonstrations and much more in the grounds of the Museum.
