The 2020 Field Days and Races

This is an iconic event that has been running for over 35 years.

The event starts with a Meet & Greet for exhibitors and sponsors on Thursday night. This is followed by a day and a half of shopping where everyone can find something that they need, lots of fun, great food. With the Stockplace cocktail party in the middle of the event the fun just keeps rolling along.

At 1pm Sat brush off the dust and don a frock/trousers for the Races with fun continuing well in to the night with live music. This is North Queensland hospitality at its best.
