There are a couple of major events coming up in February that are sure to bring Strathalbyn back to life after the school holidays.
The Strathalbyn Cup
On February 4 glamour and country charm will come together for the most beloved of events in small towns across Australia – a day at the races.
The 2018 McIlroy Auto Group Strathalbyn Cup is again set to be one of the biggest days on the local calendar.
There will be live music by The White Keys, there will be incredible food trucks and wine from Langhorne Creek, there will be a Pimm’s pop-up bar and plenty to do for the whole family.
And of course there will be the Fashion At The Races, thanks to McIlroy Auto Group, with a top prize of $1,000 cash.
With all-inclusive food and beverage packages on offer, there is no reason not to make the Sunday event a special one.

Crows v Dockers
The AFL will be coming to Strathalbyn next month, in a massive win for the sport-crazy Fleurieu Peninsula.
Strathalbyn will be covered in red, yellow and blue on February 25 when the Adelaide Crows come to town to face the Fremantle Dockers at Strathalbyn Oval in the first of the club’s two pre-season matches.

Around 8000 people are expected to fill the ground at the Strathalbyn Football Club, which had been trying to get a game to the area for over two years.
General Manager of Football Administration for the Adelaide Football Club, Phil Harper, said last October that Strathalbyn’s new function centre was what attracted the club to the township.
The club’s new $2.4 million facility opened late last year, and has seen the town become a hub for football in the region.
With just two pre-season games scheduled for 2018, Mr Harper was confident a vast majority of the side’s top players would face up against the Dockers.
The game is expected to give the GSFL great exposure, with representatives confident that the league will be prove capable of showcasing the game of football at the elite level.
