IF WASTED talent is one of the saddest things in life, you can make Wandoan’s Juandah In July one of the happiest places on Earth this Saturday.
A talent show will be one of the many attractions at Juandah In July, an all-day celebration of Juandah Historical Society’s 25th anniversary.
The festival will also feature vintage cars and machinery, market stalls, fresh food, whip making and blacksmithing demonstrations.
In celebration of cattle breeding history in the region, locals are being asked to bring their brands in to burn them into the display in the old blacksmith’s shop.
Senex Energy community relations manager Trevor Robertson said Senex was proudly part of Wandoan and was delighted to support Juandah In July.
“Events like Juandah in July celebrate people and their many and varied talents which make this such a vibrant community,” Trevor said.
“Juandah in July will be a great day out for the whole family, whether you’re interested in history, live entertainment or just great food and company.”
Juandah Historical Society caretaker Ben Roberts has extended entries for the talent show and will take walk-ups on the day until the show kicks off at 1.30pm.
“We’ve got a cash prize pool and three judges, two of whom have had successful singing and dancing careers and are keen to discover the next big star on Saturday,” Ben said.
“Whether you spin yarns, play an instrument, read bush poetry or tap dance, we want to see you up on stage. You might even get bonus points if it’s something that we’ve never heard of.
“Juandah in July is really about bringing people together as a community and we’ve got something for everyone in the family from Mum and Dad to kids to grandparents.”
Juandah In July will be held at Juandah Historical Site, 92 Windeyer Road, Wandoan this Saturday, 23 July from 10am
