Brilliant things to do during March

March is here and Albury Wodonga is overflowing with exciting events and activities for everyone. From festivals to theatre and markets to live music, here are seven brilliant things to do in Albury Wodonga this month!
 

1. Big names will be headlining the Red Hot Summer Tour in Albury Wodonga

As the  Red Hot Summer Tour makes its way through Australia, Albury Wodonga is super excited to be hosting one of these major outdoor concerts.

Featuring an all-star Aussie line up of John Farnham, Daryl Braithwaite, The Black Sorrows and Baby Animals, the concert will be filled with songs that will get the crowds singing in unison… even though it may not be quite in key.

2. Markets are in abundance this month

Meet the local producers and fill your pantry with goodies or grab an exclusive one off piece from one of the local artisans. With many of the markets offering live entertainment for the young and old, the whole family will be geared up to head along.

The Other Theatre Company will bring one of Shakespeare's most popular plays, Romeo and Juliet, to life during March with four special outdoor performances. The Shakespeare classic filled with hatred, rivalry, power and love, will be played out on the manicured lawns of Albury’s beautiful Botanic Gardens.
 
Reclining on the lawns, picnic basket at your feet and a glass of wine in your hand… I can’t think of a more enticing way to experience the theatre.

For those enjoying the Victorian long weekend, you’re in for a treat as the region celebrates all things wine with the annual Tastes of Rutherglen festival. With 19 local wineries participating in the festival, Rutherglen’s 150 year wine history and flavour diversity will be on show.
After picking up the bus from Albury Wodonga, travel from winery to winery on the winery shuttle bus to sample, taste and sip the incredible flavours of Rutherglen, all while enjoying live music and masterclasses. Tickets are available here.

5. Chryslers on the Murray

The annual Chryslers on the Murray is a three day event that draws over 600 Chryslers from across Australia making it the largest Chrysler gathering in the Southern Hemisphere.
 
Vehicles from all eras are on display in the public Show ‘n’ Shine and the swap meet attracts specialist Chrysler vendors. Entrants and enthusiasts alike now travel to Albury in the hope of finding that elusive part.
Whether you're attending the event or just moving through the streets during the three days, you will not be able to escape the roar of these much loved vehicles.

6. Cheer on a winner at the Commercial Club Albury Gold Cup

Held annually during March, the iconic Albury Gold Cup Carnival is the biggest country race meet in NSW, drawing over 16,000 people. As well as the superior fillies, the carnival draws the best dressed race goers creating an electrifying atmosphere. Offering a range of race day packages, you can dine in style within the Birdcage marquees, watch trackside at the 400 Club or just relax on the grass in general admission.

Albury Wodonga is lucky to have a vibrant arts scene featuring national and international artists alongside a strong local presence.
 
A couple of key exhibitions that shouldn’t be missed this month include Material Sound featuring six contemporary artists  who create an experience of sound within installations (MAMA), Regenerate which looks at the process of destruction and regeneration after bushfires (Arts Space) and Ngurrambaa which brings together the work of nine Indigenous Australian artists with diverse artistic backgrounds.
