Third time lucky for show

Showtime for all creatures great and small.

The annual Dayboro Show is back this year and celebrating 65 years.

The 2022 event held will be held 2-3 July will include a bit of boot scootin’, horse whispering, woodchopping and farm-tastic fun.

Less than an hour from Brisbane CBD, located in the spectacular Dayboro Valley at the Showgrounds, the Dayboro Show will be a fantastic fun day out.

Dayboro Show Spokesperson, Adam Tokely, said the show provides an exciting and affordable day for the whole family.

“For just $35, the entire family can enjoy a fun-filled day with numerous free kids’ activities such as the animal nursery, rock-climbing, puppet shows, a farm animal display, mini bouncy rodeo, reptile and wildlife shows, a circus stunt show, sand sculpting workshops and even free passports for the kids to tick all activities off their list!” said Adam.

“On top of that we’ve got all the favourites back including a sideshow alley with rides and show bags, wood chopping, fireworks, live music, food trucks a bar and more!”

Third times a charm for the country show which was forced to cancel the previous two events due to COVID-19 restrictions.

However 2022 is shaping up to be better than ever, with more than 3000 people expected to attend, 50 trade and exhibitors and the iconic Sam Handford performing his much-loved horse entertainment.

The first show was held in 1956 as a way of raising funds to pay for the showgrounds land. It was a huge success with more than 1000 people attending the one-day event. The membership fee was one guinea ($2.10) and admission was 25 cents.

“It’s hugely exciting to celebrate the milestone of 65 years, especially after the previous two shows were cancelled due to COVID. This show is an important part of our community and welcome everyone to come and join in the fun,” said Adam.
