Guinea Pig Races

Guineapig Races

We are pleased to announce that the Grenfell Country Club will be hosting the ever popular Guinea Pig Races, which are a classic part of the Festival weekend. This is a great family event that attendees of all ages will enjoy. The races attract guinea pigs from far and wide, to compete in not only flat racing but hurdles racing as well, on the hallow 10 metre pinnacle track.

The Guinea Pig Races are on Sunday 7th June.

  • Free entry to spectators - the Grenfell Hospital Auxiliary will have a stand for gold coin donations
  • Free registration for participating Guinea Pigs and their owners
  • There will be a BBQ operating
  • There will be bar facilities
  • Jumping Castle for the little ones
  • Live music (artist to be comfirmed)
  • The infamous Madeleine Griffith and Danny Joyce will be once again spruiking and giving the crowd many laughs with their antics

The number of races is dependent on the number of entries - every entrant will get to race their guinea pig. A short track is set up offering both sprint as well as hurdle races, with almost any trick in the book allowed to get your guinea pig to the finisher’s line first.
