There’s plenty happening at the inaugural Country Game this Saturday, so make sure you don’t miss a moment. 

It all kicks off from 10:30am at the Powercor Country Program Festival to be held at Yarra Park Precinct just outside Gate 3 at the MCG.

If it’s the competitive action that gets your juices flowing, be sure to check out the whip cracking, wood chopping and sheep sheering all on display!


Local acts will be on board to provide you with a morning full of entertainment from just after you arrive until just before the first bounce.
