Country Music Raceday Saturday, 10 September 2016 at Doomben Racecourse
September 10, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Featuring headliners O’Shea fresh from Nashville!
If you love music, food and racing then the Country Music Raceday at Doomben Racecourse is one event not to be missed!
It’s sure to be one hell of a hoedown!
This rowdy raceday is back for another year so slip into your cowboy boots and get into the spirit of the outback – it’s going to be non-stop entertainment for everyone with rides, music and fun.
There will be live racing on the track all day and world-class entertainment to keep the party going into the night! Now in its second year after last year’s sell-out event – 2016 will see even more giddy up action.
Headliners, O’Shea are set to rock the stage along with a swag of country music greats including Drew McAlister, Brad Butcher and Phoebe Jay. Plus, enjoy home-grown eats and activities, the infamous Dunny Derby where the outhouse becomes a chariot in a race down the track and a Country Fashions on the Field Competition .
New for 2016 is the Rising Talent competition where up-and-coming country music stars will compete to win an all-expenses paid trip to Nashville and the Show ‘N Shine Ute Muster. It’s all in the name of a good cause too – $10 from each ticket will go to Buy a Bale to support Aussie farmers.
So, come dressed in your RMs and Akubras, challenge your mates line dance up a storm and keep the kids entertained with rides and a petting zoo.
