Events & Festivals
A small band of volunteers got together with the backing of the Camden Haven Chamber of Commerce to pull together an event to showcase the region and celebrate local, produce, products, talents and icons.
The vision was to develop an identity for the Camden Haven region stage an individual, sustainable and superior gourmet/lifestyle event, provide an experience and an opportunity to showcase a professional, safe, comfortable, wholesome, festive experience.
In 2008 just over 1,500 people supported “buying local” and seeing what’s on offer on their doorstep. Not bad for a region of 10,000 people, we thought... in 2012, over 70 stallholders and 16,500 people tasted their “slice” of Haven.
The annual Riverview Carnival began in 1958 and has become the longest running and largest bowls tournament in the Southern Hemisphere.
In 2015, Riverview will attract more than 400 teams consisting of more than 1700 bowlers competiting for prize money in excess of $15,000.
