PROMOTION

The Richmond Field Days and Races is an iconic North Queensland event that has been running for more than 35 years. This year it will be held on Friday 12th and Saturday 13th June. Over the two days, you can expect to see around 150 exhibitors from a range of industries and businesses both big and small. There will be stands for agricultural supplies, bull studs, machinery and infrastructure, as well as fashion, lifestyle, food, health and homewares.

Giddy Up Richmond Field Days and Races is where the glamour of the races meets the fun-loving spirit of the bush.

It is not often you find such displays side-by-side, but that is because this is no ordinary event. Friday is about soaking in the wonders of the great bush. You can shop and stroll through the displays. There will also be the All Breed Bull Sale, featuring studs from local businesses and beyond. Then in the afternoon witness the highly anticipated Lawn Mower Derby. Friday night you can kick on at the Stockplace Cocktail Party. We guarantee live music and a whole lot of fun. But buy your tickets early because this event sells out fast. Then Saturday you are invited back for a high stakes day. You will once again have the chance to shop and stroll through the displays until just after midday. That is when we up the ante and start the races. As well as cheering along at one of the biggest race meets in North-west Queensland, you will also be treated to Fashions on the Field, Lolly Drop, Tug of War and the Ringer Challenge. If that hasn’t got you excited, we’re not sure what will. Keeping everyone entertained across the entire weekend is several great acts. The comedic duo, The Crackup Sisters, will have you laughing out loud. There will also be a Virtual Reality Experience, Magician and Brain Bus, as well as some excellent live music. Once the last horse has passed the post, it is time to kick back and enjoy the fully stocked bar and live band. This weekend is about having fun with friends, both old and new, and celebrating everything that makes the bush great. CONNECT NOW richmondfielddays.com.au
