Mudgee Field Days 2020 Cancellation
Due to the evolving COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation and the Government Order under the Public Health Act to ban mass gatherings, we regret to announce that the 2020 Mudgee Small Farm Field Days has been cancelled.
Chairman of the Australian Rural Education Centre, James Sullivan, said “This has been an incredibly difficult decision, but our priority is the health and safety of our visitors, exhibitors and volunteers.”
“It is extremely disappointing to cancel the 2020 event and we understand everyone is facing a very challenging period. The cancellation will affect a number of local businesses, as the event brings millions of dollars into the Mudgee economy.”
“This is the first time in our 43 year history that we have had to cancel an event and the financial impact on our small, not-for-profit charity will also be significant as we derive approximately 90% of our income from the field days.”
“We will be working with exhibitors to transfer their fees to the 2021 event. This will help us greatly to ensure our ongoing viability. We will be in contact with all stakeholders in the coming days.”
We will be back stronger than ever next year and hope to see you on 2 + 3 July 2021.
