Applications Now Open For Annual Toyota Country Music Cavalcade

It might be a little later than usual, but applications for one of the Tamworth Country Music Festival’s most spectacular and iconic events, the 2016 Toyota Country Music Cavalcade are now open.

The theme for the 2016 event “celebrate the music and milestones” enables participants to design their float in a way that celebrates what country music is to them and is the same theme that will be celebrated during the 2016 Golden Guitar Awards.

Tamworth Country Music Unit Manager, Barry Harley said the delay in opening applications was due to the ever changing world of insurance requirements which has meant a small addition to the terms and conditions and he recommends applicants read the fine print when they are signing up.

“There is only a minor change and we have ensured this is clearly set out on the application form but we are encouraging people to get in touch with us if they have any queries or concerns”.

The highly attended event is a fantastic opportunity for local and regional groups to be part of one of the biggest events in the Festival program and with a cash prize of $3,000 it’s a great way to be rewarded for participating. 

The Cavalcade will kick off at 9 am on Saturday 23 January 2016 from the corner of Peel and Hill Streets, Tamworth.  Entry forms can be found here or by contacting Tamworth Regional Council on 02 67667 5555.

The Toyota Country Music Festival 2016 is proudly supported by the NSW Government through its tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW.

The Toyota Country Music Festival 2016 is on from Friday 15 to Sunday 24 January 2016.  

Tamworth Regional Council acknowledges the Gamilaroi/Kamilaroi people, who are the Traditional Custodians of this land. We would like to pay respect to Elders past and present, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples living in and visiting our region.
