Most years see some novelty events and displays along with regular country flavoured fashion parades, home crafts and trade exhibits.
Livestock shown is mainly cattle, a feature breed this year will be Ayrshire and fat lambs are also to be seen.
The animal nursery is proudly sponsored by Greenham Tasmania and features an interactive display where you can get in and up close to many of your farmyard favourites.
Cattle handling has proven popular with our youth of all ages with many schools entering from all over the state, camping overnight to care for and prepare their stock for Saturday competition and honours, concluding with the grand parade of stock and champions.
This show is held against a rural backdrop of patchwork fields
and mountain ranges, for your enjoyment.
