Discover the Wagga Wagga + Surrounds where the yellow brilliance of our canola fields brightens the horizons, and the vibrant outdoor festivals shine though the newly released “What’s On’ Spring guide.

Wagga Wagga City Council’s Visitor Economy & Events Coordinator Sophie Gairn said there is a great mix of community, major and regional events on offer this spring.

“Spring is a busier period for events in our region with an abundance of things to do and places to visit,” Ms Gairn said.


“We will see the return of key events, some of which are re-launching after being impacted by COVID-19, as well as the delivery of numerous events supported by Council’s Annual Grants and Major Events, Festivals and Films Sponsorship program.”

Start the season with Motor Mania, the inaugural lawn mower race being presented by the Apex Club of South Wagga Wagga, followed by Ocrowberfest, a stein-sized day of German inspired food, craft beer, live music and more.

Another highly anticipated event is Spring Jam, a family day out at Wagga Wagga’s Botanical Gardens.

“After a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the team are excited to welcome the community back to Spring Jam being held on Saturday 24 September, specifically designed for kids aged two to twelve years,” Ms Gairn said.

“FUSION BOTANICAL is also back in a big way, returning on Saturday 15 October to its new home; the Botanic Gardens Precinct in Turvey Park.”
