On Easter Saturday every year, Corowa comes alive as the centre of billy cart racing action, festival fun and family entertainment.
Traditionally, attracting competitors of all ages and from all over the country, it’s a weekend of scraped knees and engineering marvels as childhood memories are relived. In 2019 crowds of over 5,000 people lined Sanger Street, Corowa to watch as competitors raced their home made or professionally designed billy-carts.
The event features live music, market stalls, children's entertainment, delicious food stalls and a 'Show n Shine' of vintage and modern classic cars.
Businesses open their doors and turn on the country hospitality. Visitors and locals can stop in at the cafe's boasting local produce or enjoy a traditional hearty meal at the clubs and pubs or some boutique shopping from the local retail stores.
The Australian Billy Cart Championships will be held on Saturday 11 April 2020 from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm in Sanger Street, Corowa.
