15th - 16th November 2013
The annual agricutural show at Scottsdale North East Tasmania is the showcase for the region's agricultural diversity and wealth. This small northeastern town is situated between the ferry terminal of Devonport and the holiday east coast and within an hour of Launceston.
Judging in the Homecrafts Pavilion commences Thursday with all other judging taking place on Friday and Saturday.
Horse events cater for entries from all ages and categories and are conducted on both days.
Wood chopping and shearing competitions are held on Saturday.
The show commences on Friday morning with gates opening at 7:00am both days and on Friday evening entertainment in the form of a band continues to 10:00pm.
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 but goats and fat lambs are also to be seen.
There is an animal nursery that 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.
