Fuel to Go & Play Pinjarra Festival cancelled

Published on Wednesday, 29 May 2024 at 9:59:10 AM

The Shire of Murray is extremely disappointed to announce that, due to expected inclement weather conditions, the Fuel to Go & Play Pinjarra Festival is cancelled.

As at 5am today, the Bureau of Meteorology forecasts a 95 per cent chance of rain, which is expected to be up to 35mm on both Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 June. There is also a chance of thunderstorm with winds up to 35 km/h.

The risks associated with setting-up and hosting a community event in such conditions has meant the festival cannot go ahead.

While it was an extremely hard decision to make, the Shire believes this is the responsible choice.

The Pinjarra Festival is Murray’s largest, free community event and is a highlight in the Shire’s event calendar. There are many people involved in the successful delivery of the event.

The Shire sends its sincerest gratitude to all involved in the planning and preparation of the 2024 event, and thanks vendors and event sponsors for their ongoing support.

We also thank the community for its understanding and encourage participation in the following activities, which will continue as planned:

We look forward to bringing you the Pinjarra Festival in 2025, bigger and better than ever before.
