Gunnedah's Hay and Harvest Festival, now named Harvest Gunnedah, is being pushed back again.
The event will now be held on Saturday, October 3, the third date change since it was originally announced.
It was first being held in March, then September. The NVI attempted to contact working group chair Kath Blinman to find out why, but she did not respond in time for publication.
Aside from the date change, the festival will still be held at the Riverside Racecourse and is set to feature "a feast for the senses".
Working group member Colleen Fuller said there was a lot of excitement about the new festival.
"This will be a real opportunity for people from both inside and beyond our shire to eat, discover and celebrate Gunnedah," Cr Fuller said.
"We are hoping the whole shire gets on board for this event and bring the best they have to offer to the table.
"This will become a permanent fixture on Gunnedah's calendar and we want to make the first one something to remember."
Gunnedah mayor Jamie Chaffey said it was "great to see that the council and community have come together to coordinate the festival".
"We know [this] will help with visitation into our shire and also create that great carnival atmosphere for residents of Gunnedah to get together and enjoy a relaxed time," Cr Chaffey said.
Harvest Gunnedah will feature street food stalls, a produce market, live music and entertainment, children's entertainment, demonstrations from local growers, celebrity chefs and lots more.
The festival will carry on the tradition of the well-loved former Porchetta Day. It has received seed funding of $17,000 through the federal government's Building Better Regions Fund, along with $20,000 awarded to the Gunnedah Jockey Club through the Back to the Track program.
A website for the event is on its way, but locals can already follow Harvest Gunnedah on its Facebook page. More information will be available at the Gunnedah Autumn Markets at Wolseley Park on Saturday, March 21.
