Dolly, Tractors and a very Merry Christmas for Narromine Region

An action-packed schedule of events is set to revitalise the Narromine region and drum up plenty of visitation, thanks to the support of the NSW Government.

Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders today announced $239,651 from the NSW Government’s $25 million Reconnecting Regional NSW – Community Events Program for Narromine Shire Council to facilitate not one but five events across the region over the next 12 months.

“After years of drought followed by a global pandemic, it’s time for our communities to come together again and thrive once more,” Mr Saunders said.

“This funding will enable council to tailor three specific Christmas events in Narromine, Trangie and Tomingley, before launching a secondary Trangie Truck and Tractor Show event – the TTT-Muster – in March 2023.

“And it’s hustlin’ time for the committee members organising the Narromine Dolly Parton Festival in October. They’ve got passion and a vision and they’ve been working 9 to 5 to create what I’m sure will become a landmark new event for our region.”

Narromine Shire Council Mayor Councillor Craig Davies literally tumbled out of bed and stumbled to the kitchen when he heard the news about the funding.

How can we be wrong with a great boost like this to help promote the Narromine Region?” Cr Davies said.

“The funding will assist a whole range of events to be held over coming months, including Narromine Dolly Festival, Tomingley Christmas, Trangie Christmas and Narromine Christmas Festivals and the Trangie Truck and Tractor Show.”

The $25 million Reconnecting Regional NSW – Community Events Program is part of the $200 million Regional Recovery Package, designed to support economic and social recovery across regional NSW that will create new jobs and support community events, shows and festivals to boost tourism.
