11 Feb 2022 | For Immediate Release
The Casino Food Co-Op Casino Beef Week is back in 2022. With just under 100 Days to go until kick-off, the Casino Beef Week Committee is excited to bring this year’s festival to our community, celebrating 40 years of supporting the local beef industry.
The Casino Food Co-Op Casino Beef Week will run from the 21st to the 31st of May 2022 and feature over 100 different events over the 11 days and feature all our favourite events.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary, our theme is 40 Years of Beef Week – Creating History, which means the organising committee and staff are busy planning to bring back some of the old classic events. More details will be released in the coming months.
Casino Beef Week would like to thank our Principal Partners, The Casino Food Co-op, Richmond Valley Council and Casino Lifestyle Village. Our Major Partners, Casino RSM, Westlawn and ZZZFM/2LM as well as all of our other sponsors and partners, both big and small, throughout the community.
One of the biggest changes this year is our extended cattle spectacular starting on Wednesday the 25th and running until Saturday the 28th. By extending our cattle show, we can bring more cattle to showcase in the heart of the Casino CBD and improve the quality of the show.
“This is our 40th anniversary and we are extremely excited about the changes we are making this year to produce our largest festival yet, with more events, more fun and of course, more cattle this year’s event is shaping up to be one of our best yet.” Said Frank McKey, President of Casino Beef Week. “We are also proud to announce that we will be bringing back our street parade and a couple of other events that could not go ahead last year, as well as some old classics”. Mr McKey would also like to introduce our new event coordinator Jacob Stone who has a strong history working in community and major events over the past 16 years.
The new event coordinator Jacob Stone is also excited about the changes this year and is thrilled to work with the Casino Community. “Growing up on the North Coast, the Casino Beef Week has always been a great community event to attend, and to now have the opportunity to work with the Richmond Valley Community to bring this community event to life is an unbelievable experience. The commitment by our local community for Casino Beef Week is absolutely stunning”
