Delungra has two horse events each year, with campdrafting in March, and a horse sports weekend in October, the 2007 event was unfortunately canceled due to the horse flu and subsequent restrictions on horse movements.

A number of annual events also occur throughout the year such as an Australia Day parade[4] on 26 January, a Christmas parade followed by carols by candlelight at Christmas time. On 25 April and the 11 November there are remembrance services for those that have lost their lives during times of war.
