It’s Show time!

Published on 12 June 2019


All of the fun and fanfare of the 2019 Rockhampton Agricultural Show kicks off today!

Rockhampton Region Mayor Margaret Strelow said that a massive amount of work has gone into making this the best Show the region has ever seen.

“Today the Showgrounds will be filled with rides, entertainment, and demonstrations,” said Mayor Strelow.

“There’ll be wood-chopping, show-jumping, fashion parades, fireworks, science shows, a petting zoo, and so much more – and all for the incredibly low entry price of $5!

“I really want to thank everyone who has been involved in preparations for the show, and those who will be working hard to make the next three days spectacular.

“From our Show team here at Council to our incredible sponsors and volunteers, to all of the great performers and stallholders.

“A lot of people are investing an incredible amount of time, work, and passion into making this year’s Show an incredible event worthy of its 146-year history.

“The community has absolutely gotten behind the Show this year, and I know this event is going to be something that our region can really be proud of.

“There’ll be something on for everyone, whether you like sideshows and showbags, dagwood dogs and daring stunts, commercial cattle competitions, or rides and reptile shows – so make sure you don’t miss out!”
