Newdegate is probably most famous for the annual Field Days event that takes place each September. The event first started in 1973.
The Field Days are primarily an agricultural show that is held on the first Wednesday and Thursday of each September. Machinery, technology, livestock, outdoor and camping exhibits,
arts, fashion, food and wine, local produce and live entertainment make the Fields Days very popular with over 11,000 visitors arriving in town during the two day event.
