Merriwa Festival of the Fleeces 2022

30 Years of Memories 

The Merriwa Community Portal is seeking pictures, videos and stories from anyone who has attended a Festival of the Fleeces. 

To celebrate the 30th year, we are putting together a display, which will include a slideshow and videos, as well as many images and stories. With 30 years to collate, we are sure there will be some great pictures and stories! 

The growth of social media has made it quite easy to find pictures and video that have been shared online, but we have discovered that finding much before 2012, is proving to be a real challange!

We know that many community members, past and present, as well as visitors alike will have some amazing stories, pictures and videos to share, and we would love to display this history for all to see. 

A member of the Merriwa Portal Committee has offered to collect any printed/digital images, VHS tapes etc, this weekend to make copies of, and return to the owners within the fortnight. 

“First held in 1990 at the historical Brindley Park Wool Shed, the Festival is now held in the Main Street of Merriwa. Starting on the Friday night – when an opening night celebration is held, the festival runs through to Sunday morning where everyone is invited to attend the Bush Poets Breakfast”

All items will be on display at the Merriwa RSL Club from opening night, through the long weekend. For security purposes, we will not use original items. Copies will be made at our cost and any information accompaning those items will be included in the display (if applicable). The name of the person the items came from will be included on each item to provide credit. 


To organise collection, please contact us via email (make sure you leave your name and contact number) and one of our team will be in touch asap to confirm this. We would also love to hear from any visitors who may have media and stories. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
