Entry to Bonalbo Show is free for all.
Show president David Whitney said the committee decided to offer free entry to all classes at this year’s show from jams to horse events “because of all the trials and tribulations our community has gone through.”
“We’ve had droughts, fires, covid, floods and everything else thrown at us,” he said.
Entry for those coming along to the show was free too. Mr Whitney encouraged people from far and wide to visit the Bonalbo Show on April 29-30.
“Forget your worries for the day,” he said.
The 93rd Bonalbo Show may not be the biggest show but it has a true country spirit about it.
Starting on Friday, April 29 with the dog trials.
As the birthplace of dog trials, the working dogs taking cattle through a course is a must see starting at 6.30am and running most of the day.
The Saturday program includes horse events, poultry judging, led cattle judging, bush pony classes, pen cattle judging and Olympic jumping.
Entertainer Troppo Bob will perform with his refreshing mix of verbal and visual comedy and there will an appearance by Sooty the Wonder Dog.
The show closes at 6pm.
Pavilion entries can be delivered to the showgrounds from 9.30am on Thursday, April 28.
Fine Arts (artwork) must be received by 2pm on Thursday, all other sections must be received by 9am on Friday, April 29.
Judging is on Friday, April 29. The Pavilion is closed to the public during judging, but will be open on Saturday, April 30.
