The Jackie Howe Festival of the Golden Shears Information
Event Dates: Friday 6th of September 2013 to Sunday 8th of September 2013
The Jackie Howe Festival will become an iconic signature event celebrating the sheep and wool industry at the Jondaryan Woolshed. The festival recreates life in a woolshed in the 1890s. Over three days people live the lives of those pioneers, experiencing living and breathing life as an Aussie, and understanding what made our culture and grew our spirit as a nation.
Experience the 18 stand steam powered woolshed, witness Australia's richest shearing competition with shearers and woolclassers competing for the prestigious Jackie Howe trophy. See rouseabouts, wool classing, and bullock teams with a wool wagon piled with 50 tons of wool!
The Grand Banquet with Fashion Show brings a night that only the Woolshed at Jondaryan can provide, with international guest chefs, and a local jazz band providing entertainment.
