The fair has been a staple on the Cobram events calendar. This year will mark the 34th instalment of the popular two-day extravaganza.

Society president Pat Kerr said with Shepparton Fair cancelled, the event was the biggest and best of its kind in the region.

‘‘We call it country Victoria’s best fair. There will be fabulous jewellery and fantastic linen available, plus countless other items,’’ she said.

●Cobram Historical Society’s annual Antique and Collectables Fair is on Saturday from 10am to 5pm and Sunday from 10am to 4pm at the Cobram Civic Centre.
