WA hoedown incoming...

As we’ve said many times before, Hoedowns For Country Towns was mainly a one-year venture in 2022, but by the same token, we don’t want it to die completely. So, we have come up with the idea to run one big hoedown each year, cycling through the states.

Each year, the location will be determined based on expressions of interest we receive, and all profits raised at the event will be donated to that location’s beneficiary of choice.

This year, it’s WA’s turn – a logical choice seeing as Kate is now based there, and Claire is already travelling to WA for a wedding in October. All that is locked in, is the date – Saturday October 12th, 2024. What we now need to sort, is the location.

If you’re in WA, and are interested in having the hoedown in your town on October 12th, please send a short application to us at answering these four questions (and anything else you’d like to add).

1. Which town are you from, and why do you want the event in your town?

2. What venue could host the event, and what are the associated costs of using this venue?

3. What cause would you like to raise money for? (This can be a charity, or a local group/cause)

4. What catering options are there?

Entries close on Friday May 31st. From there, we will decide on the ‘winning’ town, and get stuck into organisation mode.

Hoedown here we come! Lots of bootscooting, lots of laughs, and slightly fewer Keith Urban references than in 2022. Looking forward to seeing your entries!
