Regrettably the Committee of the Wandin-Silvan Field Days announce their 2021 event will not proceed due to the on-going impact of COVID-19 lockdowns

The Wandin Silvan field Days will not go ahead in 2021 despite every possible effort by the Committee

The Wandin-Silvan Field Days was all set for a very successful event to be held on 5 and 16 October, exhibitor bookings were strong and attendance number were high.

However, the ongoing incursion of COVID-19 and the accompanying lockdowns began to make logistics difficult for exhibitors and visitors alike to make solid palns to attend the event.

And, as with so many other Festivals and events in 2021, the WSFD Committee has taken into careful consideration the current situation, with the health and well-being of all a major priority.

With exhibitors from as far as Tasmania, Queensland, New South Wales, Western Australia and South Australia, as well as from regional and country Victoria, an early call was required.

President, William Anker emphasised, “This has been a very difficult decision for our Committee to make, a position for the second year in a row that we have found ourselves in.

“A majority of other National Field Day and Regional Show Committees have also had to contend with such decisions.” William Anker added.

The Wandin-Silvan Field Days are considered as the premier event of the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges region of Victoria, with a significant value to the local economy.

“We fully realise the impact and disappointment for all of our patrons, including members, exhibitors, and the numerous local community groups involved, and of course our visitors.

“We thank everyone for their support and endorsement of our event over the course of time during the past 50 years.

“We now look forward to working together to ensure a bigger and better experience at the 2022 event that will be held on 14 and 15 October.”
