May Racing Carnival Public Holiday

News Article Date: 
Wednesday, 28 April 2021

Thursday May 6 2021 is a public holiday in the Warrnambool City Council municipal area.

In 2020 Council opted to shift the public holiday to Melbourne Cup Day after it was decided that the Warrnambool May Racing Carnival would be held without spectators due to COVID-19.

With restrictions easing and crowds returning to the event in 2021, Council has reinstated the public holiday to align with the final day of the May Racing Carnival.
