Guinea Pig Races are a classic part of the festival weekend. You can bring your own guineapig to race or just observe. This is a great family event and attendees of all ages will enjoy it.
Gates will open at 11am, racing will commence at midday and highlights will include live music, BBQ, hot and cold drinks, pizza, soft serve ice cream and a jumping castle. Bring your own guineapigs or just come along and watch. The racing is located at Milroy’ Hoctors Road Pinnacle 30 minutes north west of Grenfell. Well signposted from Main Street Grenfell. Money raised is donated to local charities.
The number of races is dependant on the number of entries - every entrant will get to race their guineapig. A short track is set up with grandstands for the visitors. Races are both sprint as well as hurdles races will almost any trick in the book allowed to get your guinea pig to the finisher’s line first.
To register your guinea pig(s) please submit your name (or child's name), guinea pig name (or the names of all of your guinea pigs if you are entering more than one) and provide a contact email address or phone number. Late entries will be taken on the morning of the guinea pig races but these names will not appear in the Guinea Pig Races program.
