Entry & Security . . .

Our events are very popular and/or well booked in advance (if booking is necessary) - especially on Friday and the main Saturday - therefore please ensure good time management when organising your visit, so you avoid disappointments and missing any of the events. Please note that it is up to the individual venues and event organisers to coordinate entry and security, so please contact them directly if you have further questions.

Alcoholic Beverages . . .

Casino Beef Week is a family and community festival, therefore we encourage you to drink responsibly. Alcohol consumption out on the streets is strictly prohibited.

Weather . . .

Our annual event is like any other open-air event quite dependent on nice sunny weather, especially for the events on both weekends of Beef Week. However, a bit of rain won’t hurt us and our animals, therefore we encourage you and your family and friends to pack an umbrella or a sun hat if necessary and come to all our events and support the community.

Live Animals . . .

Please keep in mind that our events include livestock and many other animals. While all care is taken, some animals may be unpredictable, so in order to avoid any accidents, please make sure you and your children act responsibly.
