Knights of old will bring a medieval tone to the 49th annual Mighty Mitta Muster on Sunday, March 7.
Market co-ordinator Lorrae Smyth said the special guests from Ballarat's Kryal Castle would entertain the crowd with their jousting.
"They ride the horses, ride at each other and try to get each other off the horse," she said.
Other highlights include the hay stacking competition, wood chopping, tug of war and the skills on display in the stockman's challenge, both saddle and bareback.
"People riding their horses and having to go through gates and pick up a passenger, and then pick up water and ride back through gates," Mrs Smyth said.
