The Winter Droving 2022

Dog boy

The Winter Droving is BACK for 2022 on Saturday 29th October

The Winter Droving Returns! It’s been three unavoidable years in the waiting, but on the 29th October 2022, the torchlight procession is BACK to round off this, the 11th year of music, masquerade and magical carny feels.

That’s right, this October the Winter Droving will return better than ever. There will be food, there will be music, there will be a parade! It’s everything you’ve missed and more!

It's time to get creative with your mask making

2022 is gearing up to be our biggest year yet.

The event is a celebration of culture and community within Penrith, bringing together people from a variety of backgrounds to immerse themselves in the unusual, the beautiful and the wondrous.

This year we are working hard to put together a programme of events to rival all other years, but what we really need is you. The Droving needs drovers!

We encourage people to come along on Saturday 29th October, stalls will be open from late morning, with more acts, music, street performers and of course, the torchlight procession, taking place throughout the day. As usual, the event will be located in the town centre and around the clock tower, and, as usual, we will be looking for people to help out. So watch this space!

WEAR A MASK!!! a fun mask!!!
