Show information

Bairnsdale and District Agricultural Society is inviting the community to an informal information session about the Bairnsdale Show on Friday, October 18, from 10am to 2pm.

The committee is cleaning up the show shed in preparation for this year’s Bairnsdale Show on Saturday, November 9, and will have various stewards on hand to answer any questions about the various sections and events at this year’s show.

The committee has also welcomed four new stewards, who will make the show a little different this year.

Susan Dawkins is excited to head the cookery section. She has helped in various sections of the show for a number of years and is very familiar with the large variety to be entered into. Tanja Hennekem will be working next to Susan in the main pavilion organising the jams and jellies section.

Tanja has great knowledge in this area as she makes all her own jams, preserves and jellies, so she will be full of information to help any new people who might like to enter this section.

In the main pavilion, upstairs lounge, you will find the photography section.

Claire Dingley is very talented and looking forward to making this competition and display worth entering.

Julie Webb is the steward of the arts section, also located upstairs. This section has been changed completely, including a special section celebrating 140 years.

The committee is still seeking volunteers for setting up, receiving entries, running events on show day and packing up.

If you feel you can help out in any of the areas, contact the annual events coordinator or the show secretary.

The show office, located at Bairnsdale Racecourse, will be open on Thursday, October 10, from 11am-3pm every Tuesday and Thursday.

To enter your exhibits or horse events this year you must go online. Organisers are moving with the times and now have The Shentry Online entry system.

You can also still enter on a hard copy entry form, found in the schedule, which will be at the Bairnsdale Library, East Gippsland Art Gallery, Spotlight, Schoolworks Supplies or on the show website.
