Pedalfest

Back for 2022

The popular annual two wheeled event is a highlight of many families' social calendars.

With the new bike tracks at the Dungog Common attracting plenty of cyclists from beyond our council area, this year is shaping up to be a huge event.

The Rotary Club of Dungog is once again doing all the hard work involved in getting such a mammoth event organised.

Mark your diary for September 24, 25 and 26. More details will be part of future issues.

Get ready to Rumble baby

Car enthusiasts

Saturday, October 23, is the day set aside for the 10th annual Dungog Rumble. Vintage vehicles, classic cars, race cars, motorcycles, hot rods and trucks - pretty much anything you can describe as automotive will be at the rumble.

Hosted by the Bank Hotel in Dungog there's live music and raffles as well as the chance to see all the marvellous machines in a show and shine. All proceeds from the day go to Soldier On and Patrick Gillan. The event is of course dependent on Covid restrictions at the time.

Tea party

Cancelled

Sadly the organisers of the Dungog Tea Party have had to make the decision to abandon this year's much-anticipated event.

The uncertainty around the Covid pandemic has meant the event will not go ahead this year.

Good news is a new date has already been set for 2022.

Keep September 6-11, 2022 free - and keep creating.

This year residents will be encouraged to complete their Census as soon as they receive their instructions, if they know where they'll be on the night of August 10.
