Are you ready for a day filled with rugby and family fun? Well, mark your calendars for Saturday, April 1st from 11am to 5pm because the Gippsland Festival of Rugby is coming to town! This is an event you won’t want to miss.

Held at the Gippsland Regional Indoor Sports Stadium in Traralgon, this festival is perfect for all ages. And the best part? It’s completely FREE to attend!

So, what can you expect at the festival?
Plenty of rugby action, that’s for sure! There will be Rugby Come and Try activities for those who want to give the sport a go. Plus, there will be games and giveaways, so you won’t want to miss out on the chance to win some great prizes.

But that’s not all. The festival will also feature a Melbourne Rebels Live Site where you can catch the Melbourne Rebels Men and Women take on the Fiji Drua on the big screen. And if that wasn’t enough, there will be community partner activations.

But the fun doesn’t stop there. The festival is also celebrating 3 years until the 2026 Commonwealth Games arrives in Gippsland! So, join us for an amazing day of rugby and community spirit.

Bring your family and friends and make the most of this exciting event. For more information, keep an eye on the Facebook event – Gippsland Festival of Rugby. We can’t wait to see you there!
