Stroud Show set to celebrate its 100th year!
The hub for agriculture, eccentric contests and community spirit will forge ahead with the Stroud Show Committee announcing their centenary celebrations will be held on Friday 9th and Saturday 10th April, 2021 at the Stroud Showground.While this year’s Show may look a little different from previous, including pre-purchased tickets, social distancing and a cap on visitor numbers - preparations are well underway and organisers are expecting to run a full program, with an extended camp draft schedule to debut on the new arena.
“As a signature Show for the region, we are excited to be bringing the Stroud Show back in 2021. We are 100 years old and still going strong even in pandemic conditions. A comprehensive Covid-19 safety plan has been developed by the Committee, which strictly aligns with the State Government Guidelines. The guidelines will be closely monitored and the safety plan will be adapted as needed”, explains Stroud Show President and Zone 3 Delegate for ASC, James Harris.
The two day Show will offer visitors acres of activities and exhibitors to see and do in the great outdoors - from the speedy fence post splitting competition, Ute muster, wife carrying comp, demolition derby to an animal nursery and variety of amusements ride providing a truly unique family day out.
While in the ring, equine enthusiasts will delight with the stallions, colts, mares and fillies on display and competing in their various disciplines of show jumping, hacking, equestrian and show ring. Over in the pavilion, the farm produce is a sight to be seen with oversized pumpkin, zucchini and watermelon revealed.
The annual Stroud Show will also showcase incomparable livestock, products and produce from the Stroud Valley region and beyond, giving a true feel of what life in this real country town has to offer.
