What is the 'snag festival'?
Earlier this year, Mudgee was the winner of travel site Wotif's 'Festival of Wot' campaign, beating Queensland's Festival of Mangoes in Bowen, Festival of Redheads in Maryborough and South Australia's Festival of Wheat, Wool & Wine in Clare Valley.
Wotif Managing Director Daniel Finch congratulated Mudgee on the victory.
"Not only are we excited to create a quirky and quintessentially Aussie festival, but we're thrilled to be able to deliver something meaningful for the Mudgee community, that we hope will provide a boost to the local economy and tourism industry amidst a drought-affected regional area," he said.
