“It is disappointing to see this event postponed, however it is understandable given the uncertainty surrounding fluctuating restrictions.  

This will be a one-of-a-kind event in Erica and Council looks forward to supporting its delivery on the new date. In the meantime, we will continue to engage with the local community to provide support and activities that promote the region in recovery.”  

Quote attributable to Deputy Mayor Cr Michael Leaney 

“Covid has had a huge impact on all parts of community life and the running of events has been a major casualty. The Walhalla Steampunk Gala was cancelled and sadly the Erica Country Expo has suffered the same fate. For a region of the shire that is extremely reliant on tourism and has been negatively affected by bushfires, flooding and Covid restrictions, this is another blow.

Council is committed to these events and our remote communities, we hope that in 2022 we will be allowed to proceed so that everyone can enjoy these festivities.”
