The small Upper Murray town of Corryong is gearing up for what is set to be another huge weekend celebrating horsemanship, live music, art, poetry and community over Thursday 30 March to Sunday 2 April.
In its 21st year, The Man From Snowy River Bush Festival (MFSR) was born as an event to truly reflect ‘what the Man From Snowy River poem meant to our Australian horsemen and women’.
Now, 22 years on, it boasts a jam-packed program including a diverse range of events with the MFSR Horsemanship Challenge – where 80 of the best riders in the country compete for the $80,000 prize pool and the prestige of joining the MFSR Challenge Legends board, at its heart.
It also features the exhilarating ‘Man From Snowy River’ re-enactment where the poem is brought to life in an action-packed display of horsemanship, poetry and music.
Other attractions include the art and photography exhibition, street parades, markets, fantastic food, bush poetry, working dog championships and loads more.
It’s a festival where truly everyone’s tastes are catered for.
“We are so proud to be able to celebrate our unique bush heritage and its culture here in Corryong every year and cannot wait to kick off what our hard-working community has helped to bring together for the 21st festival!” festival co-ordinator Jenny Boardman said.
A number of new events have been added to this year’s festival including the trainers challenge, where three horsemen showcase their training skills with three young unhandled horses over three days of the festival.
The MFSRlive line-up will feature performances from The Wolfe Brothers, The Bushwackers, Caitlyn Shadbolt, Deep Creek Road, Pete Denahy, Brad Butcher, Melody Moko and Danny Phegan.
As a predominantly volunteer-run festival and with the profits being donated back into the community of Corryong through a grant funding program, the festival focus is supporting the community that supports it.
