There will be a ladies’ afternoon tea with Western attire compulsory or if your taste runs to something stronger there is a gamblers and drovers saloon.

Festival organiser Florence Davis is passionate about encouraging a family atmosphere and seeing people enjoy this wonderful event. A great weekend full of good music, fun, laughter and dancing will be had by all on May 12-14.
