Events in the Valley

The Richmond Valley is home to some significant regional events, including Casino Beef Week and the PRIMEX field days, attracting some 100,000 visitors between them for their celebration of the beef industry, rural lifestyle and the agricultural produce of our region. In addition to these, we host an extensive range of events both inland and on the coast. We have the staff and facilities to hold major events and we would like to talk with you about holding an event in the Richmond Valley. Please do not hesitate to contact our Events team.
