CASTERTON’S Australian Kelpie Muster is preparing to celebrate its 25th anniversary this June long weekend, with a new-look festival packed with entertainment plus the return of the iconic working dog auction, anticipated to break records in 2021.
Forced to postpone festivities due to COVID-19 restrictions last year, the volunteer committee has been working tirelessly in the downtime to plan a celebration which meets state health regulations without hindering the colour and frivolity the event is recognised for.
Casterton Kelpie Association president, Karen Stephens said the committee had engaged a highly respected consultant to ensure all protocols were met to secure the 2021 event.
“The Casterton Kelpie Association is thrilled to advise that the much-loved Australian Kelpie Muster will proceed this June long weekend (June 12 to 14),” she said.
“After a 12-month hiatus we are back to celebrate our 25th anniversary and recognise the instrumental role this beloved working dog has played in not only the Casterton community, but that of the nation.
