Mr Beef (If you’re game!)
It all began in a car park on the back of a beer truck and today the annual search for Mr. Beef is one of the most popular events during Beef Week. Ten years ago event founder Kenny Woodhams was judging the Beef Week Queen competition and came up with the idea to have something similar for the boys… and it has just been a phenomenon. Contestants have shown everything from leopard print underpants to man-kinis and elephant G-strings.
Saturday wraps up with live music and entertainment in various venues...
Team up with a friend on Sunday to compete as a team of two in Beef-Week-themed fitness obstacle course.
