Port Pirie Smelters Picnic

Community Event

2 Oct 2019

Originally, in the early 1900 the “Smelters Picnic’ was organized to provide a day’s pleasure for the employees of the then BHP Company’s Lead Smelter at Port Pirie and their families. Since then, the Picnic is based in Memorial Park with a slightly different concept attracting over 80 stalls, unique entertainment and attended by over 12,000 visitors. Running for over 100 years, The Smelters Picnic relies on the support of the whole community.
