Putting Dowerin on the map – the Dowerin Machinery Field Days

There is no doubt about it, the Dowerin Machinery Field Days has cemented Dowerin’s place on the map. Taking place annually during the last Wednesday and Thursday in August, the Dowerin Machinery Field Days is a one stop shop for farmers, community members, visitors and tourists to the region. Complete with machinery demonstrations, livestock, equipment, fashion as well as wine tastings, kid’s entertainment and a wealth of local information the Dowerin Machinery Field Days really do need to be seen to be believed.

Our small population of 700 swells during the two-day event which welcomes over 20,000 to the district each year. Hosting the nation’s largest agricultural event of its kind is no mean feat for a community of our size and population however the valuable contribution that this event makes to the local economy is undeniable and the way in which money raised through the Field Days is distributed back through to organisations across the region is remarkable and the epitome of community spirit.
