Dubbo New Year Carnival Under Review and may not be held in 2019 – information below not current
The Dubbo New Year Carnival (NYC) is a timed event that has been running for 41 years. It is hosted by the Dubbo Athletics Club. The NYC caters for all ages from Tiny Tots to 80years + and is aimed at family fun.
In 2018 the NYC was run over three days with twilight events on Friday and Saturday nights 5th & 6th January 2018. On Friday night we are running the new events that were introduced in the 2016 NYC which are the steeple chase and Hammer throw and these start from 6pm. Any one from U14’s up can enter but you must be registered with ANSW to compete in this event. Children and women will run 2k and the men will run 3k for the steeple chase. Programs can be picked up on the Friday night. Click on this link to have a look at the order of events NYC 2018 Order of Events

Being timed means every event has a given start time and we pride ourselves on keeping to schedule. This gives athletes the flexabilty to visit the attractions Dubbo has to offer over the weekend whithout missing out on their event. We offer most events in both track and field and the athlete must nominate their events prior to the closing date in order for the carnival to be timed. The cost of the carnival is $5 per event and $20 per relay team (Relay’s must be nominated by 3pm on the Saturday of the carnival).
Our Preferred Accomodation are local business’s that support our carnival. We would appreciate you patronising them so they will continue to support us.
The 2018 New Year Carnival will be held at Barden Park. We look forward to seeing you all in 2018 for our 41st year.
