Hair farmers from across Australia and the globe are expected to flock to Kurri in droves his February for the third annual Mulletfest!
The popular event, now in its third year, is an unabashed celebration of the quintessential Aussie haircut, and with last year’s event drawing 165 entrants from such far-flung corners of the globe, this year’s promised to be even more hirsute.
This year’s Mulletafest will feature a hair-raising ten categories with the juniors split into four groups – 0 -3, 4 -7, 8 -13 and 14 – 18.
And aside from being a celebration of all things mullet, the event is also a great day out with bands and heaps of family-friendly entertainment.
There will also be Everyday, Extreme, Grubby, Ranga, International and Vintage.
Aside from being a darn toottin’ great time, Mulletfest is also your chance to give something back with the event raising money for The Mark Hughes Foundation.
In 2019, Mulletfest raised an impressive $5000 and organisers are hopeful of eclipsing that figure in 2020.
So whether you are sporting what you believe to be the most glorious mullet in existence, know someone who is or you just want to come and join the fun and support a great cause, we can’t think of a better way to spend your Saturday afternoon.
This year, team Mulletfest took the show on the road, to Australia’s largest celebration of car culture -Summernats and even roped in rocker Shannon Noll to help crown the event’s Grand Mullet Champion.
Organisers are hopeful that many of the Summernats entrants will have another crack in Kurri.
Mulletfest is on at The Chelmsford Hotel, Kurri on Saturday 29 February. Head here for more information and to enter.
