Rockhampton Agricultural Show 2019

Want a chance to be part of all the behind-the-scenes energy, excitement, and action at the Rocky Show? Then put your hand up today to volunteer, and help make this the best Show that Rocky has ever seen!

Rockhampton Agricultural Show Committee member Councillor Ellen Smith said this is a great opportunity to get involved in something big in our community.

“This year we are bringing back all of the fun and spectacle of the fair, and volunteers will be an incredibly important part of making this Show the fantastic event that our community deserves,” said Cr Smith.  

“There are plenty of exciting opportunities to help out, wherever your skills and interests lie.

“We are looking for gate keepers, bus drivers, waitresses, stage coordinators, horse show stewards, and more. 

“Thanks to our great sponsors, Pat O’Driscoll Real Estate and Rocky Sports Club & Inferno, we have lined up an incredible volunteer package to thank those who help out.

“The package includes free three-day entry, free parking, a volunteer t-shirt, and a few more surprises. We’ll also be hosting a dedicated volunteer thank you event as part of the Show celebrations.

“Volunteering at the Show is a great chance to have a fantastic time, meet some new friends, and really be part of a great team working together to put on a spectacular event.”
