2021 Elmore Field Days

The Elmore & District Machinery Field Days Committee have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Elmore Field Days, which was due to take place in October 2021.  Due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions and conditions currently required to run events the committee feel this decision is in the best interest of public health and safety for all exhibitors, volunteers and attendees.

 

The Elmore Field Days attracts exhibitors and public from all over Australia and overseas.  Due to the current interstate and international border restrictions, it would not be guaranteed that the usual exhibitors would be able to attend.

 

The Committee left the decision to cancel the event as late as possible with the hope that the COVID-19 situation might have eased, but due to the government restrictions, uncertainty around running events and the current outbreaks the decision was clear.

 

Scott Nichol, President said “whilst the Elmore Field Days Committee is disappointed to have to make this decision, our committees main concern and deciding factor is the public safety of our community, volunteers, exhibitors and attendees”.

 

The Elmore Field Days has been running annually since 1964.  This year was meant to be the 58th Elmore Field Days.  The Elmore Field Days has only ever cancelled one day of the field days in 1975 due to flooding, and last year’s 57th field days due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

“We hope that everyone continues to stay safe and well.  We plan to be back bigger and better on 4th, 5th & 6th October 2022” Mr Nichol said.

 

The Elmore Field Days would like to thank everyone involved in the field days for being so supportive and understanding during this unprecedented time.   A big thankyou to our exhibitors, committee, members, sponsors, community, volunteers, and the public.
