THE success of events such as the Nyngan Ag Expo is down to the hardworking committee members and equally important sponsors.
Energy giant AGL, which operates the landmark solar farm at Nyngan, is again the naming rights sponsor for the 26th Nyngan Ag Expo.
The event is shaping up to be the best ever, with more than 300 exhibitors including more than 30 new exhibitors, so there’ll be something for everyone to enjoy.
The AGL Nyngan Ag Expo drew record crowds in 2017, with thousands enjoying the sunshine and exhibitions.
Enjoying the glorious sunshine, nearly 4000 patrons attended and provided a great atmosphere for the 324 site-holders.
“This annual event has helped put Nyngan on the map as a place to visit and is a great credit to all those who worked hard through the years to build the status of this event to its present level,” organiser Robyn Harris said.
Chairman Peter McKid described the event as one for the community as a whole. Mr McKid has been on the expo committee for more than 15 years. This year’s expo is his first as chairman.
“It’s not just the event that benefits from the day, it’s also most of the businesses. The motels and hotels are all booked out, service stations and food markets have an influx of patrons,” he said after last year’s event.
“The effort put in by the committee and the volunteers was phenomenal and added much to the smooth running of the event.”
There will be something for all ages, including live country entertainment by local Royden Donohoe near the Aussie Country Catering Food & Wine Marquee and craft activities for the kids, including the always popular Animal Nursery, which was packed with excited young children for most of the day.
Exhibitors take a vast array of products and services from the latest in farming techniques and technology from solar energy to fencing construction through to craft and good food and wine products.
“It’s hard to imagine there would be an event with a bigger range of products available than at this year’s expo,” Mrs Harris said.
