The Echuca Moama Country Music Festival was launched in 2007 by Roz Giles of Big River Entertainment.  It was then known as “The Echuca Workers Country Music Festival” and was held at The Echuca Workers Club.

In 2014 the festivals’ name was changed to “The Echuca Moama Country Music Festival” and was hosted by the Moama RSL Club.

This year the Moama RSL will once again play host to this fabulous event that attracts country music enthusiasts from all over Australia.

Each year the festival has presented a first class line up of popular local & interstate artists. The main aim of the event is to present an affordable weekend of quality entertainment which covers all styles of Country, Ballads, Evergreen Classics and  a touch of good ‘ole 50s 60s Rock n Roll.
