Noosa Country Show draws big crowds

9 September 2019 |Community news

Under gorgeous blue skies the 110th annual Noosa Country Show attracted thousands of locals last weekend, and they went home happy.

Organisers of this year’s show said there was something for everyone and the ticket sales proved it.

Few country shows have stood the test of time as well and the Pomona showground is still the hub of the community in the town where Noosa Shire was originally formed so many years ago.

For two full days, the main arena was full of horses and activity with people of all ages showing off what they have. Riders from all over regional Queensland came to enter with some as young as five years old.

As with all good shows there was sideshow alley, rides of all kinds face painting, great family entertainment and food as far as the eye could see. A massive selection of different goodies meant that show goers were spoiled for choice. Show goers were happy and right into the spirit of the two-day celebration.

Our show remains one of Queensland’s premier traditional country shows and thus there was plenty of artwork, baked goods, vegetables and fruit, flowers, jams, photographs, plants and more. Some 18 sections submitting for judging including horses, flowers and fruit and vegetables in categories for kids and adults and a massive variety throughout the pavilion.

Show president, Peter said he was delighted how thing all came together over the two days.

"It’s been a labour of love again this year, but we’re very happy with the way it all went,” he said.

“We’re a passionate show committee and thrilled with the program we assembled for 2019. I really want to thank them for their incredible efforts, allowing us to showcase the very best of Noosa Country to so many. We have to thank our many sponsors too. Noosa Council has been a great support along with Simone, Jo and the team at the Pomona and Cooroy Community Bank® branches of Bendigo Bank”, Peter added.

This year, a great mix of our local school bands and more experienced local acts filled the two stages providing great music and entertainment for fans of all ages. Andrea Kirwin, Robin and the Hoods, Zurich and Brown, Jivers, Better Together and Uncle Bob’s Jug Band and Smoke ‘n’ Mirrors all packed a punch. Kids enjoyed The Kangagang and the fireworks as the evening entertainment kicked into gear.

The Honky-Tonk Rodeo wowed the crowd on Saturday night and horse events took place right across the two days. Perhaps it was the affordable ticket price is what attracted so many for the two days? A family pass for one day was $35 with kids under 5 years free.

If you missed the 110th instalment of this great community get-together, then plan to get along in 2020.
