GEMBOREE 2020: Cancelled


We are all aware of the coronavirus (COVID-19) that is currently causing disruptions, illnesses and some deaths in a number of countries.
The VGCA acknowledges that the situation with COVID-19 is rapidly changing and given the raising to pandemic status we will be following the instruction of the Chief Medical Officer and Government.
Therefore the GEMBOREE® 2020 has been cancelled. The health, welfare and safety of all who were to attend the event is of paramount importance.
Monies paid to the VGCA Inc. for camping, tailgating, trading, dinners and off site fees will be fully refunded. Try Booking payments will be refunded via that site.
The raffle for the 2020 GEMBOREE will still be taking place as quite a few VGCA Inc affiliated clubs have already sold tickets. It is hoped that interstate clubs will also support the raffle by buying tickets.

The raffle will be drawn at the time stated on the tickets.

If you wish to buy tickets please email us at to get details.

The tickets are $1 each. They will be written out for you and you will be sent a photograph of your tickets and the numbers.
