'We are devastated': Maidenwell Country Muster cancelled

WIND bursts of up to 36 knots on Friday night has forced the cancellation of the inaugural Maidenwell Country Muster.

Organiser of the event Nigel Squibb said the decision was made at 9am this morning due to safety concerns after the event site was devastated by wind.

"We are devastated, heartbroken tired and exhausted," he said.

"This event for the South Burnett has been a three year project and we are aware there are a substantial amount of people that were looking forward to it."

Mr Squibb said all ticket holders would receive a refund, but asked for patience as there would be a delay.

"Thank you for your support and we are calling on your continued support," he said.

"It has been a colossal journey of every proportion as the South Burnett has not seen anything of this scale before and it has been a practice for next year."

Beccy Cole will be holding a meet and greet with Libby O'Donovan at the Maidenwell Trading Post at4 pm.
