Keep Our Great Little Country Show Alive

Now in it’s 67th year, the future of our favourite family show is hanging on by a thread.

The Show’s success and longevity so far, can only be attributed to it’s team of volunteers, sponsors, supporters and our local council, without whom the Show would not go on.

In recent years it’s been a challenge to replace exiting committee members, and to fill official committee positions, leaving us with no scope for succession planning.

We’re urgently looking for members of the community who are interested in joining the committee, and volunteering to help run the Show for 2020 and beyond. If this is you, please get in contact with us.

This can be done via our website

Or by calling: 0414 071 565

Please spread the word and we hope to see you all for the 2020 Show.

Say Cheese!

Hot weather forecast for 2019

Fb animal welfareThe Hamilton Agricultural Society take animal welfare concerns extremely seriously. With the hot forecast for tomorrow’s show we have consulted animal health specialists, and have ensured we can abide by hot weather policies.

Cooling methods are in place for horses competing and adequate shade and water available for any other livestock. Our vet will be on site monitoring conditions.

Should any of our exhibitors or competitors have any concerns on show day please contact us through the secretaries box and we will assist.

Due to early gestation of cattle used in Campdrafting, this section has been cancelled. All other exhibitors and competitors are asked to consider their travel times to avoid the heat of the day.
