Pitch Fork Cowra is gearing up for its exciting second year.
Festival-goers will once again flock to the Cowra Showground over the June long weekend for a celebration of our wonderful outdoor Aussie lifestyle, our love of the bush, camping, wholesome family fun, cooking outside and just sitting around the campfire with good food, good people and good yarns.
This year will see the return of the esteemed camp oven competition, where attendees will cook in teams of up to four people and compete for wonderful prizes, and of course, bragging rights.
The camp oven competitions aren't just for the adults either, with those under 15 years of age competing to see who can cook the best damper on the day.
Those competing in the camp oven competitions will be led by crowd favourite Ranger Nick, often referred to as the guru of camp oven cooking.
Ranger Nick is the master of keeping it simple.
A dinky-di country boy, he whips up a cracker of a meal with whatever is in the tuckerbox.
Ranger Nick grew up in the scrub of western Queensland and has gained quite a reputation as the entertaining Aussie Bush Cook, that sings and has plenty of yarns or poems to tell.
His true blue Aussie style, unique sense of humour and expert knowledge of camp oven cooking is set to entertain hundreds of happy campers from 10am on Saturday, June 9.
Pitch Fork Cowra is set to be a fun-filled weekend not to be missed.
There will be live music from the likes of Shane Kerr, Lusi Austin, Sim Bastick and The Layabouts, market stalls showing off the best that the Cowra region has to offer, a Cowra quick-shear demonstration, mechanical bull, jumping castle, face painting and so much more!.
Pitch Fork Cowra will be on at the Cowra Showground Friday the 8th and Saturday the 9th of June, topped off by the Queen's Birthday Bonfire and Fireworks Spectacular at Wyangala Country Club from 4pm on Sunday the 10th of June.
