Show time … be part of it!
The President and Committee of the Gundagai P&A Society invite everyone to our 130th Annual show. There have been many changes to life due to Covid-19. The Gundagai show, our much loved and long running event will also be different for 2021, as it is not possible to hold it in its usual form due to Covid restrictions. Our Committee was unanimous in that if we can put on a show, we should put on a show.
As usual this year’s program kicks off on Friday with mainly show jumping. Show jumping at Gundagai is the major Showjumping competition in New South Wales continues until Sunday afternoon. Come and see some of the best riders in Australia competing. It’s worth the effort to spend some time watching these events
Please note that entry to the showgrounds on Friday and Sunday is FREE.
Saturday will be a day of fun filled family activities.
We also have Lachie Cossor – Animal wrangler coming to our show in a demonstration which has been described as ‘orchestrated chaos’. It is a fun show with some horsemanship, working dog, crowd participation, its educational with a comedy spin on it. It includes Horses, Ponys, Pigs, Dogs, Sheep, a goat and an over sized Bullock, that all have their place in the show.
The Telopea Band, a large school band, that can play pop, rock movie themes etc will be in Gundagai. They can play something for everyone. This youth band tour regularly and usually perform at Canberra Royal Show. Due to the cancellation of Canberra show, it is Gundagai’s gain.
We will also be the usual events such as Sheep, Cattle, Horses, Poultry, Pavilion Exhibits, Yard dogs and Sheep Dog Trials, Cattle Dog Trials, Show dogs, Birds, Animal Nursery, Wildlife display, Majura Magician, Face painting, Cartoon portraits, Stalls, Vintage cars, Sideshow alleys, Show Bags and Chainsaw sculptures.
The Annual Show showcases our district and beyond, and we continue to see the very best agricultural exhibits and Community displays on offer.
We are proud of our Annual Show and Community Spirit it generates. The show would not survive without the local community and the generous support from our Members, Sponsors and advertisers.
Schedule sections can be found here on our website. Members of the public entering any of the many varied schedule sections can lodge their entry, prior to the Show, at the temporary Show Office at Ray White Real Estate, Sheridan Street. The Office will open from 10am to 4pm on Monday 15th Feb. until Thursday 18th Feb. Our thanks to Ray Piper, Mike Kingwill and staff for allowing the use of their offices for that period. See you at the Show!
Due to Covid restrictions it was not clear if we could conduct a Show … however some easing of restrictions have now made it possible.
