The Boddington Rodeo, held on the first Saturday in November, along with the Boddington Arts Council Festival, provide a significant drawcard, and enable a showcasing of all the Shire and its residents have to offer. The Quindanning Picnic Races, held each Easter Saturday, also provide a unique tourism opportunity enjoyed by many from within and outside of the Shire.
