Kogarah Fair and Charity Bed Race

Home > Sydney > Community Events | Fun for Children | Festivals
Event:
On your marks, get ready, set...GO! And the race is on for more than 40 hospital beds down the main street of Kogarah for the 18th annual Kogarah Fair and Charity Bed Race. And yes you heard right, a bed race.

Accompanied by a marching band, all beds will be crazily decorated and paraded down Railway Parade on Saturday August 29 with hopes to raise $25,000 for the local St George Hospital. The funds will go towards purchasing new medical equipment for the operating theatres and the neurology ward.

“This much-loved event has become a tradition in Kogarah, and is unique in Sydney,” says Toni Hersey, Lamrock’s Committee President.

The beds will be driven by daredevils who will also be dressed in costume on the day as they take part in the Bed Race heat. There will also be a best dressed bed award and plenty of entertainment including roving street entertainers, bands and singers and of course rides and games for the kids. And to top it off, there will also be food stalls to feed the hungry stomachs.
