AN UDDERLY LEGEND-DAIRY COUNTRY FAIR
Saturday 7th July 2018
9.00am – 2:00pm
Grab your cow onesies and mooch on down to Cowaramup for our annual Deja Moo Fair. Our theme this year is vehicles and our lineup includes vintage machinery and veteran car exhibitions, live demonstrations from our local fire brigade and our main event …..DA DADA DAH …… The Cowaramup Open-Wheel Professional Amateur Trophy or ….COWPAT. Yes it’s quite a mouthful (basically the organisers just wanted an excuse to name an event after cow poop).
So what is this COWPAT you ask? The COWPAT Trophy Race is a competition event for home-made unpowered miniature wooden race cars, racing in a series of knockout heats along a 10m long sloping track. This is similar to the PINEWOOD Derby concept from the USA.
You can either make your own COWPAT car from scratch or procure a premade model from MuKau Giftware in Cowaramup for a mere $5 (proceeds to our local Cowaramup Bullshed). All you’ll need to do from there is add any scoops or wings, paint or stickers and Bob’s your uncle you’re ready to roll.
If you’re wanting to have a go at building your own car from scratch, there are strict guidelines for it’s dimensions and do’s and dont’s that are outlined in the following instruction sheet. Just click on this link below:

Then all you’ll need to do is rock up to the Deja Moo Fair on Saturday 7th July and make your way to the oval where you’ll see the racetrack. Keep an eye on the local Times Newspaper for race times.
One event will be the same, rain or shine! Millers will have some of their baby cows for patting and their own delicious Millers Icecream for sale.
There will be markets, and pony rides, lazer tag, a jumping castle and bucking bull ride (weather permitting) and plenty of yummy food. Face painting will be in the big top along with a station to build your own COWPAT car if you haven’t made one already.
All in all it should be a pretty fun day! So pack up your onesies and head on down to Cowaramup in the July school holidays.
We also have our annual Cow Rally Competition running for the month of July with $1000 major prize up for grabs. Passports containing the questions will be available on this website and at participating businesses at the end of June. Great family fun to get yourself out and about in the Margaret River Region.
The Deja Moo Fair is again playing host to our local art competition Deja View! Held in the Duggan Pavilion in Cowaramup, Deja View is a chance for local artists to showcase their works to a large crowd of Fair goers. The art will be for sale and you can also cast your vote in a people’s choice award.
If you’re wanting to have a go yourself at submitting artwork, the Artist’s Application Form is below. There is a prize of $200 up for grabs for the People’s Choice Award.
Best of luck!
