Welcome to our festival website.
In its 22nd year, the CopRice Cobden Spring Festival is a celebration of our community of Cobden and district, in a fun event for all age groups, and in 2017 we have chosen as our theme, "Celebrating our Community".
The festival begins with the Bendigo Bank Junior Fishing Competition on the banks of Lake Cobden, on Friday, then on Saturday we have changed the timing of events and so our famous Fonterra Street Parade will be held at 12pm this year, and will feature our Legendairy legends, our community's "Unsung Heroes".
Also on Saturday, Street Broadcasts, Brekky on the Street, Kids' entertainment with The Mik Maks, a Buskers Comp, rides and jumping castles, Show bags and in-store giveaways, a Quilting Display, Cobden Orchid Club's annual spring show and lots more.
Our duck race has been replaced with the "Curdie Cow Crap", which will take place during the parade.
Sunday's events include a fun run/walk, food and market stalls, pet parade, dog jumping comp, mini train rides, mini golf, Historical Society display, and Pioneer Park activities including a "Moto Show". The Sth Western District Restoration Group will have displays and working engines and the Orchid Show and Quilt Display will be open again today.
You're sure to find something at the 22nd CopRice Cobden Spring Festival to entertain and interest you!
