Turning the Wheels of Time

The wheels of time turn back over a hundred years as the peaceful village of Evandale in northern Tasmania once again plays host to the National Penny Farthing Championships.

The Evandale Village Fair is held annually in February, and features a full program of Penny Farthing bicycle racing featuring the National Penny Farthing Championship. Started in 1983, the Evandale Penny Farthing races attract enthusiasts from across Australia and around the world. A village fair and period themed festival in Pioneer Park accompanies the Penny Farthings races.

Pre-purchased tickets will be available online from January 2023.

Admission is $15 per adult and free for children under 16.

This event is participating in the Zero Waste Events Tasmania Pilot Program. Please join us in reducing landfill generated at this event by utilising the recycling and FOGO facilities we will have available.
