Ned Kelly Jerilderie Letter Event
Saturday 11 February 2012
Come join in the festivities and help celebrate Jerilderie's history by commemorating the Ned Kelly Gang's 1879 raid of Jerilderie.
The Jerilderie Letter Event is a celebration of the role the town played in the unfolding of the Ned Kelly Legend. The event focuses on Ned Kelly's manifesto, the Jerilderie Letter, which he attempted to have published at the town's printery in 1879.
There is plenty to see and do for all ages including a market, swap-meet, historical displays (which includes the original Jerilderie Letter, on loan from the State Library of Victoria), live music, re-enactment, show 'n' shine, street parade and much more.
Jerilderie is located in southern New South Wales on the Newell Highway, the major route between Melbourne and Brisbane.
