If your toes are starting to tap or your boots starting to scoot, then you’ll know. Yee-hah! It is just about time for the annual Toyota Country Music Festival in Tamworth.
The family-friendly fanfare runs from 17th to 26th January and includes busking, rides and 10 nights of free concerts. Buckle up and don your cowboy hats for another year of country music mayhem.
Head on over to the Family Zone on Kable Avenue, with dedicated Family Zone Stage. You’ll find a ferris wheel, jumping castle, dodgem cars, giant slides, outback monster trucks and more. The Family Zone operates from 10am to 3pm and from 5.30pm to 9pm daily. Land in time to enjoy the Happy Hour offer between 11am and midday, with which festival-goers can buy 1 ticket and get the second one at half price.
Outside Family Zone, Toyota Country Music Festival Tamworth hosts plenty more for kids and grown-ups. Wander down to Tamworth Town Hall for Coca-Cola Country talent quests. Enjoy free concerts in Toyota Park. Be serenaded by buskers as you meander down Peel Street. And for the first time ever, enter the inaugural Festival Fringe in Fitzroy Street Plaza. You’ll encounter fire performers, comedians, contortionists, circus acts, pop-up music and more.
Be sure to stick around for the big finale on Saturday 25th January 2020. The Toyota Cavalcade will unfold on Peel Street, combining a ute muster, dance acts and music parades on Peel Street. Later in the evening, enjoy the star-studded final concert of the Golden Guitar Awards.
If you’re a family of die-hard country music fans, the fun doesn’t end at Toyota Country Music Festival Tamworth. Snap a pic in front of the Big Golden Guitar, greet music greats in the Country Music Hall of Fame or follow the Country Music Trail. While in the region, it is worth meeting roos and emus in Tamworth Marsupial Park, cooling off in a local swimming pool and riding a caboose at Tamworth Miniature Railway. The star performer is Tamworth Regional Playground, with its skywalk, giant slides, bike track, double flying fox, sway bridge and café.
