“Over 7000 visitors came to the event last year and we are hoping to see many more this year”.“We saw families and visitors from across the State last year and with the short one hour’s drive from Adelaide and only $2.00 entry, makes Mannum the place to be on the June long weekend”.

Now is the time to shine up your prime mover, ute or 4WD and make your way to Mannum with so many unique categories Best Tradies Ute, Best Feral Ute, Best Business 4WD and many  more , who knows you could be a winner. Mayor Dave Burgess of the Mid Murray Council said the SA Truck & Ute Show now in its 5th year had grown over the past years and certainly was one of the signature events for the region capturing the essence of community spirit through the dedicated passion of the Mannum Progress Association to keep Mannum in the spotlight and on the destination radar.

“The uniqueness and affordability of the event attracts many new visitors to the township and seeing the main street closed and alive with wall to wall trucks and utes, brings an element of intrigue and an opportunity to experience the heart of the event up close”.The PS Marion will be offering short cruises from Mary Ann Reserve, so dig out your picnic rug and enjoy the magnificent Murray and walk amongst the endless chrome and kaleidoscope of colour at one of SA’s unique events at Mannum
