Spend a weekend where the city meets the country

HOLD onto your hats, this weekend is the Teebar Campdraft and Rodeo.

From sunrise late into the night there will be non-stop action, with campdraft, rodeo, children's activities and live entertainment.

Teebar Show and Sports Association president Malcolm Beresford said he was looking forward to a great event and if the weather held up, even better.

"There were 2000 people walking around last year," he said.

"We are hoping for better if not the same, as long as the weather holds out.

"We have been finishing off improvements to the campdraft yards and the rodeo return yards have all be upgraded."

There will be a full 16-event rodeo from 9am and from 6.30am a four-event campdraft will run until 4.30pm.

"We are with the NRA and will have rodeo champions vying for points for the championships later this year," Mr Beresford said.

He also mentioned this weekend was the centenary of Teebar Hall.

The fifth-generation farmer has dug up a lot of family memorabilia, including photos of the opening to add to the display at the hall during the rodeo.

There will be a cake cutting about noon and everyone, including past families, is welcome to attend.

Local artisans will be displaying and selling their wares along with a number of different stalls, including food from barbecues to pizzas - "everything you could want on the day."

"We also have a licensed bar and Hervey Bay entertainer Ali-S with a four-piece band will entertain from 4pm until late," Mr Beresford said.

"The local school always volunteers at our events selling drinks and helping out - we give them a donation for their contribution."

There will be raffles and a lucky gate prize.

The popular ute muster with seven different categories will also return.

The president of 23 years said he welcomed visitors to come to the outer reaches of the Fraser Coast.

"Come out and and get a taste of what is out here," Mr Beresford said.

"This is where the city meets the country."

The Teebar Campdraft and Rodeo on Teebar Hall Rd will be held on Saturday, June 16 from 6.30am until late.
