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 horse events and showjumping, poultry show, miniature goat show, mini trotters, a sideshow alley with rides and show bags, wood chopping, fireworks, live music, food trucks, a bar and more!”

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

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.

2022 will also celebrate 65 years of the Dayboro Show.

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.
