The country’s oldest Field Days and one of the most popular events makes its return in 2021 on Tuesday to Thursday 28, 29 and 30 September
Established in 1894, the Yorke Peninsula Field Days are acknowledged as the oldest in Australia, and the most popular in their area.
The three-day biennial event has a major focus on agriculture and the industry’s future with extensive displays of the latest agricultural machinery and equipment, technology, information and services.
Exhibitors are urged to check on the website on 1 March when bookings for all indoor and outdoor sites will open, mark it in your calendar and log onto www.ypfielddays.com.au.
Be sure to check in as sites will book out quickly as there is strong demand for farm supplies and equipment in the region following an excellent season for grain growers and high livestock prices.
Overall, the event provides a wide variety of quality displays and demonstrations designed to be of interest and appeal to both rural and urban families.
The event program includes fashion parades, working sheep dogs, wool and sheep, excellent guest speaker presentations, quality crafts and a large variety of general interest products and services.
The Field Days site covers 30 hectares and draws upwards of 700 exhibitors.
Held at Paskeville South Australia, the event is located approximately 120km north of Adelaide and is easily accessed via a dual-lane highway.
Public opening hours are 9am to 5pm on each day of the event and entry fees are $15 per adult with children under 16 free.
A three-day pass for $35 is also available.
Entry fee includes free parking in designated areas as well as entry into all displays, pavilions and demonstrations. There will be courtesy transfers available from Kadina, Wallaroo and Moonta.
For potential exhibitors, indoor and outdoor site applications are open online from 1 March.
Show organisers promise exhibitors excellent opportunities for face-to-face communication with their target audience as well as marketing potential to a crowd that typically exceeds 35,000 people over the course of the event.
