World Championship Gumi Race and Cork and Fork Festival
Johnston Street, Wagga Wagga, NSW, 2650, Australia
2nd March 2019
The famous South Wagga Apex Gumi Race is on again. Get some friends together and build a 'gumi' or just cheer the participants on from the banks of the Murrumbidgee River! This year will feature the Cork and Fork Festival, a free open outdoor festival with local food, estate grown wine by Borambola Wines, Tuckerbox beer and apple cider plus live entertainment! To enter the race you need a team to build a 'gumi' (a raft using only rubber tubes for flotation) and paddle power to get yourself the seven kilometres downstream to Wagga Beach. The Gumi Race will start at Eunony Reserve with scrutineering beginning at 8.30am. The first wave of Gumis will set sail and arrive at Wagga Beach around 11.30am. A festival awaits the entrants and spectators alike with food and drinks, live music, and kids entertainment. Visit their website for more information. All proceeds from the day go back into the community through South Wagga Apex.
