Show Office opens weekly as the Bellingen Show date approaches.
Following the recent announcement that Bellingen Show is a-go for Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 May, the Bellingen Show Office is now open every Wednesday between 1-4pm, attended by newly appointed Show Secretary, Cherylene Burke.
Bellinger River Agricultural Society President Gillian Anderson said “After a couple of really tough years we are looking forward to bringing the people of Bellingen together to showcase the breadth of talent in our area and to celebrate our efforts as a rural community.”
Ms Anderson continued “We are thrilled to have Cherylene Burke join the team as Show Secretary to support the Show’s volunteer-led committee in our revised operational structure.”
The Society is calling for the community to get involved in the Bellingen Show. “There’s a vast array of competitions and categories,” said Ms Anderson “whether it be submitting a piece in the Mantova Art Prize or your kids’ artwork in the Children’s Art Competition. Enter your pooch in the Mongrel Dog Competition, your loved one in the Partner Carry Competition, or join in the Bellingen Show Fun Run.”
The Show Committee encourages the community to spend the day or the whole weekend soaking up the laid back country show vibes. Expect fun for all the family with wood chop, cattle, chooks, horse and pavilion competitions as well as rides, a petting zoo and a raft of big farm machinery for kids young and old to awe over. Plus, music and dance fans will burst with pride at the community tent devoted to local performers.
The Bellingen Show atmosphere will be amped up in the late arvo with local music acts bringing the community together to enjoy the tunes, a drink at the bar and bite to eat at one of the local food stalls.
The full suite of Bellingen Show categories and competitions will be up here soon on the Bellingen Show website.
Show schedules for cattle, horses, poultry and the Pavilion classes will be available online in March, and print copies distributed in April.
