On behalf of the Riverland Field Days Inc. Committee, Staff, Coordinators and Volunteers I would like to welcome you to the Riverland Events Centre for the 62nd annual Riverland Field Days. We are confident that this years event will deliver to you two days in September to remember.
The Volunteers, contractors & exhibitors have all been busy with preparations on and off site. There is something for everyone including Huge Displays of Machinery, Cars & Trucks, Exhibition Pavilion, Marque Pavilion, Home & Garden, Caravan & Camping, Barmera Markets, and Entertainment.
We have special local guest Peter Kent from Salt & Pepper Catering for the Cooking Demonstrations. A performance by the Royal Australian Navy Band on the ANZ Stage is a must see feature this year. Popular attractions have returned including Wood Chopping, Blacksmiths, Ag Art Wear, Vintage Machinery, Helicopter Rides, Riverland Youth Theatre, Riverland Artists Display, and Jamie & Kim's Mobile Zoo.
A wide variety of Catering Food Choices and Nippy's Drinks are available to tempt the taste buds and satisfy your hunger. Come along and support some of the many local community and sporting groups represented here.
The Riverland Field Days provides the perfect opportunity and great value for our many exhibitors to display, promote and demonstrate their products and services. This is the best opportunity in year to promote and market to the biggest audience at a major event for the Riverland Region. The Riverland Field Days is the biggest Horticultural based field days held in Australia.
The Riverland Events Centre provides excellent facilities for events like our major annual event, the Riverland Field Days. The site is available for hire throughout the year for small to large functions/events and everything in-between.
Please enjoy your time here and have a great day out. If there is anything you need, our staff and volunteers will be happy to assist.

WELCOME by Tim Whetstone, Member for Chaffey
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the 62nd Riverland Field Days, one of the country's most successful and innovative agricultural forums.
The Riverland Field Days is a premier event that attracts over 15,000 people each year and celebrates the best that our region has to offer. The two-day annual event has continued to grow each year in both size and stature, with an extensive display of over 350 exhibitors showcasing their agricultural products and services. Since 1958, the Riverland Field Days has enthralled locals and visitors alike, attracting people from inter and intrastate.
The event is vital to the Riverland's prosperity and its reputation has continually grown as a quality supplier of horticultural and agricultural tools. From its inception, the Field Days have been a conduit for farmers to collaborate and discuss the latest technologies and techniques in the agricultural and horticultural realm. The ever-changing face of these industries means that farmers are constantly re-evaluating practices seeking the most efficient way to grow and market their produce.
If you are not visiting the Riverland Field Days for the agricultural aspect, there is plenty on offer for all tastes and ages. Visit the many exhibitors, enjoy the abundance of the region's food and drink, watch the cooking demonstrations or watch our talented students and musicians perform.
The ongoing success of the event is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the Riverland Field Days committee and the many volunteers who put this fantastic event together. I would like to congratulate all of those involved in making it a reality.
If you are visiting the Riverland I encourage you to take some time to explore the diverse tourism experiences on offer, experience the majestic River Murray, sample our unique foods and wines, along with everything else our region has to offer.
My electorate office will be located at the Riverland Field Days, so I look forward to seeing the best of our region on display¬ — please feel free to drop by and say hello.
