The $5 Rockhampton Show is here to stay!

Published on 06 August 2019


Following the major success of this year’s Rockhampton Agricultural Show, Council has announced that it will continue running the event through to 2025!

With more than 40,000 attendees through the gates this year, Rockhampton Region Mayor Margaret Strelow said Council has also agreed to keep the entry to just $5 for next year.

“Council couldn’t be more pleased with the result of this year’s show after deciding last August to take over the event, to bring the rides and animals back together in the one spot and make it the affordable family event that it should be,” Mayor Strelow said.

“I would like pay huge credit to the hardworking organising committee who we have re-elected, and also our volunteers for their commitment to delivering a fantastic event for our community.

“We already have sponsors expressing a strong interest to come on board again and we are talking with exhibitors and volunteers for feedback to ensure the 2020 Show is even better.”

The 2020 Show Public Holiday date has been set for Thursday 11 June.
