Join us again for this very special event, the Stroud Brick and Rolling Pin Throwing Competition where bricks will be tossed, rolling pins hurled and rubber chickens chucked.
Stroud Showground will be bursting with market, craft and food stalls, activities and entertainment. Pulling for a return is the ever-popular tug-o-war, the fast and furious post splitting and wood chop. Crafty locals will exhibit more than 60 magnificent handmade quilts – all up for critique by the people’s choice award. The Annual Stroud Brick Throwing Parade will commence at 9:30am on Cowper St with the theme 'Shine like a Diamond' and conclude at the Stroud Showground.
Young visitors will have free face painting, amusement rides, marching koalas and so much more!
For rev heads ... United Ford Owners Club will have an impressive collection of 150 cars on show, providing a walk down memory lane for Ford lovers. We will have Sons of ANZACs Motor Bike Club, the Newcastle Restored Vehicles Club and California Cruisin Car Club.
Tickets: Adults $10, Children 15yrs & under $5, Children under 5 FREE & Family Ticket $25
Tickets only available at the gate on the day, not online.
About the Brick & Rolling Pin Competition:
In 1960 the brick-making towns of Stroud in the UK and the USA, held the first bricking-throwing contest, with Australia and Canada joining the tradition in 1961. In 1962, Australia suggested including a women’s rolling pin contest. And recently, the fun-filled addition of children hurling a hen embodies the events sense of family spirit and lightheartedness, which keeps attracting participants and spectators year after year.
