Mingenew Lions Midwest EXPO – IT’S HUGE!!


Contact the Expo Secretary on (08) 9928 1138
Every September the community comes alive to host the Mingenew Lions Midwest EXPO. Held over two days, Thursday & Friday of the third week in September, the event is continually changing & evolving. The largest regional two-day agricultural field day showcasing agriculture, education, health, lifestyle and general interest products and services. It’s a time to be entertained, fed & informed. The one time of the year when sporting & town rivalries are put aside and the people of the Mid West come together to catch up with the latest in everything from agriculture to child development. While some are busy checking out the 400 sites & comparing crop developments, the rest of the family come to see the fashion parades, Family Interest Marquee, Education & Careers & Shire Showcase Marquees. Not to mention the boutique wineries, olive growers, Old MacDonald’s Farm exhibits and much much more…
