The Cadell Harvest Festival is one of the traditional country fairs of yesteryear with competitions for everyone with local preserve and home made brew, orange and carp throwing, cock roach racing, tug-of-war, a massive Easter Egg Hunt and the major event, ‘the Murray River Giant Pumpkin competition.

The Murray River Giant Pumpkin Competition has reached world-wide recognition with interest from across the globe and has been registered with ‘The Great Pumpkin Commonwealth’ ac-credited association.

Five years ago MGA Insurance Brokers, donated a prize for the grower of the heaviest pumpkin to attend the Half Moon Bay Pumpkin and Art Festival near San Francisco which has driven this competition to a new level of appeal creating many amateur growers across the Nation. There are prizes in 10 categories from Prettiest to Ugliest Pumpkin or dress up your Queensland Blue for the novelty section!

In 2011 Dale Oliver of Byron Bay travelled the long distance to deliver his pumpkin weighing in at an amazing 390kg won first prize and his record has never been broken, perhaps 2016 is the year to do it!

This year we have live entertainment with Lilly and the Drum, wine tastings, food and produce stalls and Callum and Themis from Sprout Cooking School will be presenting cooking demon-strations at 3pm and 4.30 p.m.

Don't miss the Easter Saturday event at the Cadell Oval only two hours from Adelaide on the magnificent Murray River. Entry is only $4.00 and children under 15 are free.
