Now in it’s 68th year, the Hamilton Agricultural Show is a traditional grassroots show held in the heart of Tasmania, on the first Saturday of March.
NB: The show has been cancelled for 2021
Hamilton is a quaint town with lots of personality, situated an hour or so drive north of Hobart through the Derwent Valley. https://hobartandbeyond.com.au/hamilton/
The Hamilton Agricultural Show is a great mix of traditional show attractions such as Shearing and Wool Handling, Wool, Working Yard Dogs, Campdrafting, Dog High-Jump and Equestrian events, together with some newer elements such as; the Miniature Goats, ‘Temptations of the Valley’ – featuring food and drinks from local producers, clay target shooting, along with loads of children’s activities and some great live entertainment.
While the main objective of the show is to promote agriculture in the Central Highlands and Derwent Valley, the Hamilton Show is great fun with a variety of attractions.
The 68th Hamilton Agricultural Show is next due to be held on Saturday 6th March 2021 at the Hamilton Recreation Grounds. With mass gatherings currently cancelled due to COVID-19, the Hamilton Show Committee are waiting to see to what extent restrictions are relaxed over the coming months, in hope that Agricultural Shows may be allowed to proceed in 2021.
Whether you’re a stallholder, competitor or a spectator, it’s an excellent way to start your long weekend. Put it on your calendar – come along and enjoy a day in the country, with family and friends.
Gates open 8am @ Hamilton Recreation Grounds, 5595 Lyell Highway, Hamilton 7140, TASMANIA.
We thank the Central Highlands Council, our sponsors, donors, volunteers and patrons for their ongoing support of this event. Without your support the show would not go on!
