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.
As a result of last week’s AGM, the committee have made the tough decision to cancel the 2021 Hamilton Show. This is due to the uncertainty of COVID19 restrictions, and the need to commence planning with the associated threat of incurred expenses. We thank the Central Highlands Council, our sponsors, donors, volunteers, patrons and affiliated community groups for their ongoing support.
There are opportunities for your business to sponsor a specific event, offering prizes to the winners of classes and competitions, or the broader Hamilton Show.
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.
The Show Shear event continues to attract strong interest from local, state, national and international competitors.
The Hamilton District Agricultural Show Society Inc. would greatly appreciate an indication of your sponsorship intentions by the 1st February 2020, this enables us to place sponsors in our programme of events, pre show promotion on website and social media, as well as assisting in planning for the 2020 show.
