Show time … be part of it!
On behalf of the President and Committee of the Gundagai P&A Society I am firstly delighted to invite you and your family to our 129th Annual show, and in doing so I thank the many sponsors and advertisers of the Gundagai Show. Without these contributions and the hard working Show Committee, the show as we know it, would not go on.
This year’s program kicks off on Friday with mainly show jumping. Show jumping at Gundagai, which is quickly becoming 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. Local radio station – Sounds of the Mountains – will be broadcasting live from the showgrounds on Saturday.
Bendy Em will have you on the edge of your seat as she comedically bends and contorts her body into freakily mind-boggling positions. If you want to see something memorable and entirely out of the norm watch Bendy Em squeeze herself into a tiny 16″ Perspex Box balanced on a 7ft rig. This show should not be missed!
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.
There 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 below (scroll down). 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 old Gundagai Real Estate, Sheridan Street. The Office will open from 10.00am to 4.00 on Monday 10th Feb. until Thursday 13th Feb. Our thanks to new owners for allowing the use of their offices for that period.
I invite each and every one of you to come along and be part of this 129th Annual Gundagai Pastoral & Agricultural Show.
See you at the Show!
