Gunning Show

The Gunning PA&I Society will be hosting the Gunning Show on the weekend of February 22-23. With the trots held on the Saturday, and the show on the Sunday, this country show is not to be missed! There's tons of family fun, with free activities for the kids, including a patting paddock, balloon twisting, face painting, novelty events, reptile shows and chainsaw demonstrations. There will also be shearing competitions, yard dog trials, wood chop and much, much more. This is a great opportunity to support the resilience of agricultural communities and rural towns that have been challenged by extraordinarily dry conditions over recent years.

Gunning Lions Markets

The February Gunning Lions Market, to be held on Sunday, February 23 from 8am-2pm, promises to be good fun and worth a visit. Located in and around the historic Gunning Court House, you can expect a tantalising range of homemade goods, wonderful local arts and crafts, children's toys and second hand tools and knick-knacks. You never know what you might find! The Lions Club will put on a barbecue for breakfast and lunch offering bacon and egg rolls, sausage rolls and steak sandwiches. Why not make a day of it and explore everything else Gunning has on offer - take the time to visit the atmospheric local country pub, fantastic cafes and eclectic range of local shops.
