WHERE: Longford Showgrounds.
WHAT: A day dedicated to all things goat!
WHO: Goat Fest is run by a committee made up of members from the Tasmanian branches of the Dairy Goat Society of Australia, the Miniature Goat Breeders Association of Australia, Mohair Australia and the Boer Goat Breeders Association of Australia.
WHY: Goat Fest is all about celebrating and promoting the incredibly versatile goat. We also work hard to educate the public, whether it be husbandry, feeding and other care related topics or just giving people the chance to get an up-close, hands on experience with these incredible animals!
WHAT’S ON: At Goat Fest you will find (most importantly!) lots of goats. We have more exhibitors and more breeds than ever before. There will also be husbandry demonstrations throughout the day, competition entries to admire and on-the-day competitions. Loads of information available from the various breed organisations, goat milk soap sales and other goat-related merch too. Our major sponsor The Tasmanian Food Co. will be there with their delicious Robur Farm Dairy range of goat milk products for you to sample and purchase. If that gets your mouth watering, lunch is sorted with a Cancer Council sausage sizzle, plus ice creams, coffees and more. This year we also have more for the human kids too, with a colouring in competition!
HOW MUCH: Entry is by gold coin donation, which helps us cover the costs of holding Goat Fest.
Whether these shows will also be cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions will be determined closer to dates.
