2019 Theodore River Festival

October 4, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - October 6, 2019 @ 8:00 pm


The Theodore River Festival is a fun filled family event that runs different events/activities over three days – the main days being Saturday and Sunday.

Inspired by the magnificent Dawson River, towns that border its banks pay homage to its virtues, each year throughout September and October.  The Festival is a multi-function event, celebrating the Dawson River, ensuring a fun filled family weekend with lots for kids and adults alike.

Focused on families, thousands turn out to parkland, showground and town hall events that throw the spotlight on the mighty Dawson and all that’s great about Theodore.
Up and down the river competitions often include but are not limited to tinnie and wheelbarrow racing, gumboot and hay bale throwing, tractor pulling, bike gymkhanas, fishing comps and so much more.  Not to mention the art exhibitions, fashion shows and food and market stalls, also not to be missed!


48-hour camping is available at Junction Park by the Dawson River along with picnic facilities, and hot showers for a donation.
Theodore Showgrounds offer powered sites for $20 per night. P: 0487 207 373.
