Rhodo Day is the first Saturday of November – 3rd Nov, this year. It’s a great day of entertainment with music, stalls, rides and fun galore.
– Parts of Govetts Leap Rd and Gardiner Crescent are closed and transformed into a music stage and food stall alley.
– The Festival Princess will be crowned in Govetts Leap Road shortly after 10am, just in time for her or him to hotfoot it to the public school to start the parade.
– The grand parade starts at 11.30am, winding its way along Wentworth Street from the school to Hat Hill Road. Everyone from the primary students to the pre-schoolers, theatre groups, scouts, dog walkers, dance teams, footy clubs and more dress up to parade through the town to the cheers of hundreds of onlookers.

Afterwards, there’s plenty to see and do.
- – The New Ivanhoe hosts the wood chopping competition.
- – The Gardners Inn has the roof bolting and coal shovelling (a nod to the coal-mining history of the nearby central west).
– There's music all day on the Govetts Leap Rd stage and sausage sizzles everywhere you turn.
And don’t forget to visit the Art Show – in its 50th year this year. It’s in the community hall in The Gardens.
