Kempton Festival 2024

The annual Kempton Festival is organised each year by the Kempton Festival Committee, a committee under the Green Ponds Progress Association.  Over the last few years, the Festival has grown to be a popular event in the area.  The Sheep Racing is a unique event and a lot of fun - you can even place a bet on your sheep!  The day offers a lot of fun entertainment, activities and displays for the whole family.  In 2024, as well as the sheep racing there will be: ducks and dogs, flying paws, sheep shearing demonstrations, sheaf and gumboot tossing competitions, barrel rolling, ferret racing, line dancing (which you can join in with), side shows, children's activities (including the popular Tas Laser Skirmish), market stall, food and drink stall and lots more. An ATM will also be available at the festival site. Entry is by gold coin donation and all profits go back into the Kempton community.  This is a great opportunity for visitors and locals to enjoy the festival and explore the lovely historic town of Kempton.
