Rokewood Rodeo & Country Festival.
THE third Rokewood Rodeo & Country Festival was held on the 22nd of November 2015.
This year’s was to prove to be our best yet event with approximately 3,500 people attending.
Rodeo competitor numbers were again up on last years and we are told it is becoming a well respected Rodeo event on the circuit. We were fortunate to have Shannon Nolls as our after Rodeo entertainment. Shannon was also supported by Millie Haines and WonderPants.
Two of our local sporting groups, Rokewood Football & Netball Club and the Rokewood Cricket Club, got involved setting up food stalls, which I believe did very well, raising funds for their clubs.
We would like to give a big thanks to those volunteers and groups that helped on the day.
This is a large event and without the help of our volunteers and supporters would not be such a success. Because of our success we were able to donate $8,500.00 to various groups. These included The Pink Ribbon and Cancer Victoria, the Rokewood Golf Club, The Rokewood Men’s Shed, Rokewood CFA, Leigh Fire Group and the Rokewood Karate Club.
The 2016 event will be held on the last Saturday, the 26th November 2016. We anticipate that this will be another successful year, with some top line entertainment. Bob Paice
