After the 2018 runaway success of Mulletfest, the inaugural event that had tongues wagging from Kurri Kurri to Russia, the Chelmsford Hotel is giving mullet maestros another crack at the title on Saturday, 23 February. What began as an idea over drinks in a small NSW country town quickly became the talk of the nation last year, as mullet growers and lovers turned up in droves to celebrate Australia's most iconic hair style at the aptly named Mullet Fest, held at the Chelmsford Hotel, Kurri Kurri.
That was a year ago, and now it's back with organiser's currently on the lookout for participants sporting the classic Aussie haircut.

"With close to 150 entries last year, we are hoping to top this number with entries from all over the country and for those sporting the classic cut overseas, there is even an international category," Chelmsford hotelier and event organiser Laura Johnson said.
"It’s also your chance to raise money for a cause close to our hearts, the Mark Hughes Foundation.
"So whether you are sporting a mullet, know someone who is or you just want to come and join the fun and support a great cause, we can’t think of a better way to spend your Saturday afternoon."
Festivities will kick off from 10am at the Chelmsford Hotel, Kurri Kurri. Follow Mullet Fest 2019 on Facebook and/or Instagram @mulletfest2019 for details on categories and how to enter.
