In a cheeky tribute to the inauguration of King Charles III, this year’s Deja Moo country fair will boast a ‘Cowronation” theme.. Locals and visitors are encouraged to wear cow onesies with crowns, tiaras and jewels fit for as monarch for the annual Cowaramup festival, to be held on Saturday, July 8. The popular cow-themed Deja Moo, now in its 11th year, began with the arrival of the now iconic life-size fibreglass cows installed through out the town. Deja Moo co-organiser Jill Turton said this year’s monarchist theme in tribute to the inauguration of King Charles III was “all about bling and crowns, and we’re calling it the Cowronation.” “No tiara is too big or too small, and a black and white onesie is the perfect foil for rhinestones and diamonds, rubies and emeralds,” she said. “Seriously, jazz up your onesie however you like, but a crown would be udderly perfect.” The 11th annual festival comes amid ongoing efforts from local volunteers to keep Cowaramup on the tourist map, even though the hamlet and its surrounds had recently experienced a rapid increase in population. This year’s Deja Moo, at the Cowaramup town hall, will include food and drink market stalls, and local exhibitors producing arts and crafts including handmade goods, jewellery, woodwork, ceramics, pottery, candles, woven goods, books, and plants. Family fun activities will include a vintage machinery demonstration, cake decorating for children, pony rides, laser tag, fire-brigade demonstrations and a kid zone where children will be able to decorate their own personal crown.
