PLANS FOR 2021 WALGETT SHOW ARE UNDERWAY FOR A COVID-SAFE EVENT
The 82d Annual Walgett Show is on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th of May 2021 at Walgett Showground. Walgett Show is the opportunity for all members of every community across Walgett Shire to exhibit, compete in and attend their Shire’s Show. Whether you are from Walgett, Lightning Ridge, Collarenebri, Rowena, Burren Junction, Angledool, Carinda, Cryon, Come-By-Chance, Cumborah or Glengarry and Grawin Opalfields, this means you.
There is something for all. Walgett Show offers sections, events and competitions including horse events and cattle; sheep; wool; children’s pets; dog sporting and poultry. There are child, adult and open classes to enter. Have a look at a schedule when released, there is a class for everyone. One entry more makes a better display. If there is not a class for your item, ask the Chief Steward, they may be able to create one for it.
Consider entering one of the many varied Pavilion sections from craft to cookery, horticulture to handicrafts, art to agriculture and special sections including in Photography. Check out the Animal Farm and special stalls, trade displays, the Bike and Ute Shows on Saturday afternoon, the usual Saturday evening entertainment and the Quickshears on Sunday afternoon.
Entertainment will be a highlight of this year’s Show and at this stage, details are being finalised and information will be released very soon.
Organizing the “Local Show” begins at the completion of the previous year’s Show and continues over the following twelve-month period but due to COVID-19 it has been two years between Shows so imagine how great the 2021 Walgett Show is going to be! Details of what will be on offer are released when confirmed and will be included in the Entertainment Guide that is available closer to the Show weekend. Momentum is building!
Walgett Show is the largest community event in Walgett Shire, so it is the peoples’ Show. Make it your Show by entering, exhibiting or being a Show-goer, participating or perusing the jam-packed 2021 Walgett Show!
