Held at the Merrigum Museum, volunteers will be demonstrating old skills of ropemaking, blacksmithing, sheep shearing, sleeper cutting, woodturning, milk separating and butter churning, whip plaiting and lacemaking.

The feature demonstration will be cricket bat making. There will also be collectibles on display, including the Echuca Car Club.
