||The Karoonda Farm Fair is an annual 2-day event showcasing local, state and interstate farming and general interest products, services and events. Based at Karoonda in the heart of the Murraylands region, the field day is centrally located and enjoys a broad visitor base from throughout South Australia, as well as interstate.
With over 300 exhibitors each year, the field day attracts crowds of around 7 - 10,000 over the two days. The Farm Fair focuses on primary production and associated industries.
While the region is light on with rainfall some areas are quite good but the sheep industry is enjoying great returns on both wool and meat.
Besides the great line up of businesses displaying a vast array of products, we also have many interesting entertainment events during the Field Days e.g. Karoonda Yard Dog Championships, Speed and Sports Shearing, Children's Entertainment, Ram Display, Photographic Competition, Fashion Parade, Fleece Competition and Local Small Business Promotion.
A large Lifestyle Pavilion will cater for all indoor exhibitors and will include clothing, cosmetics, craft, computing, children's toys, gardening products. Also included will be Education & Government Depts. finance advice, health departments and alternative industries throughout the Murraylands region.
Regular exhibitors to the Karoonda Farm Fair often remark how friendly and co-operative the "Mallee" people are.
