Snowy Ride 2018
Saturday 3 Nov, 2018
The Snowy Ride is a motorcycle event run annually in the Alpine Region of NSW since 2001 and has helped the Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Foundation (SWCCF) raise in excess of $7 million for research into a cure for childhood cancer.
All money raised by SWCCF goes to childhood cancer research programs and support of children with cancer. The aim of the Snowy Ride was to involve the motorcycle riders of Australia into raising money for research into childhood cancer and its side effects and to give the local volunteer organisations of the Snowy mountains area the chance to raise money for their own communities.
There’s live entertainment kicking off in the Village Sqaure from 3:30pm onwards! Rock out with Uncle Jed’s, Michael Stangle and Steven Kucina as the play a variety of your favourite tunes…For more details, see below.

The Mass Ride
Weather permitting the mass ride will start at 3.30pm at the Bullocks Flat Ski Tube (location marked on Snowy Ride map). It’s a great way to finish the Snowy Ride as the reception you get arriving in Thredbo is inspirational. A bit of a tradition of dressing up has developed over the last few years. It’s a lot of fun and we appreciate the effort. Remember you still need to be wearing full riding gear. Riders in costumes will be at the front of the ride. Please ensure you arrive by 3pm if you intend to take part in the ride.
When: Saturday, 3 Nov
Where: Thredbo Village Square
Music – 3.30pm to 5pm – Michael Stangel & Steven Kucina
Presentation – 5pm to 6pm
Music – 6pm to 7.30pm- Uncle Jed
Artists: Uncle Jed, Michael Stangel & Steven Kucina
Uncle Jed took the nation by storm with their spine-tingling performances on reality TV show ‘Australia’s Got Talent’. The trio went on to win the competition, propelling their album to #6 on the iTunes Charts and the audition videos receiving millions of YouTube hits. The Band has since gone on to sell out shows on multiple national tours and are in the process of recording their 3rd studio album due for release in 2019. When you combine three siblings with a love of music, the chemistry is truly magical, Uncle Jed has that family band feel and you can always tell they are having a fun time on stage together.
Presentation & Prize
Presentation and prize draw is on in Thredbo Village Square around 5pm, straight after the Mass Ride finishes. But we encourage you to hang around and enjoy the great entertainment on offer in various venues.
