Gear up for a fun day out and watch homemade and professional billycarts zoom down the Main Street. There is a race category for everyone from 5 year olds to celebs to school comps and seniors and the parent/child race.

The event first started in 1995 as a celebration that our town had a main road bypass – it’s since grown into a community event that really puts Bangalow on the map for all the right reasons.

Similar to previous years we are pleased to combine with the Bangalow Public School’s Annual Fair – The Pit Stop, with some delicious food on offer as well as rides, activities, games and the famous cake stall!

Common People Brewing are proud sponsors of the Bangalow Billycart Derby, and stoked to be bringing back their oh-so-delightful Billycart Blonde!

This Belgian Blonde is their Autumn Seasonal and has a bright golden appearance, with a sweet malty aroma of honey and spice. The smooth and rounded mouthfeel balances well with tastes of honeydew, finishing with a medium bitterness.

Just like the ride down the Bangalow main street, at 7.6% ABV this beer is not for the faint at heart, but may just be the best ride of your life. Fortune favours the brave!

You can also catch Common People Brewing on race day at Bangalow Public’s Pit Stop, where you can get the Billycart Blonde, other beers and wines, with part proceeds being donated to the school. See you at the finish line.
