Powercor Country Festival

17 April, 2019

We’re celebrating the strength of the country at the Powercor Country Festival on Sunday May 5.

‘Country Strong’ is a special kind of strong. The kind of strong that makes you hardy, resilient, tough against hardships and the elements. Our Country Festival is all about celebrating ‘Country Strong’ and giving it up for the people in our rural and regional communities.

Powercor Country Festival will see Geelong Football Club and Essendon Football Club celebrate the role regional and rural Victorians play in our community through a JLT Community Series game, and a blockbuster Round 7 clash at the MCG.

Footy fans will get to enjoy a celebration of the country before bouncedown with Yarra Park to be transformed into the Powercor Country Festival. The free event features live music, field shows, kids activities and a farmers market with over 50 stalls showcasing the best food and wine from across regional Victoria.
