This year's Australia's Biggest Bogan Festival has been cancelled.

Organisers advise that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is with great regret that this year's edition of Australia's Biggest Bogan Festival will be postponed.

The event was scheduled for July 10-12 at the Bedgerabong Racecourse.

"This decision has not been made lightly but in consultation with various organisations and groups," an advisory from the festival organisers said.

"We also have a duty of care to consider the safety of all involved.

"As a result, we plan to come back bigger and stronger in 2021 at a date yet to be announced.

"We plan on keeping everything in our program as is for now pending consultation with other parties and their availability and circumstances.

"Existing tickets will be honoured as will agreements when the new date is set," a statement from the organisers said.

This decision has not been made lightly but in consultation with various organisations and groups ... We plan to come back bigger and stronger in 2021 at a date yet to be announced.
