1 June 2018, 12am to 26 August 2018, 12am

Roll up, roll up, it’s showtime! Come along to this family friendly exhibition at Pine Rivers Heritage Museum.

The showgrounds have been tidied, the entries are in and the excitement is building.

The annual local show is about to begin. Agricultural shows are one of the most iconic of Australian traditions, loved by generations. They began as a way for farmers to share ideas and learn about new farming methods and equipment, providing an opportunity for distant neighbours to meet face to face. Shows have been an important event in communities across the country since 1822 and the tradition is still going strong, with 128 shows held throughout Queensland each year.

In the Moreton Bay Region there are six shows - Caboolture, Dayboro, Pine Rivers, Redcliffe, Samford and Woodford - all run by a team of dedicated and passionate volunteers and each with their own unique stories.

From humble beginnings, our local shows have become multi-day extravaganzas, offering exhibitors and visitors a combination of serious competition and light-hearted fun.

At its core, the shows have remained the same. They are places for education and entertainment, providing an opportunity to celebrate individual achievement by showcasing the very best from the local community.

Exhibition developed by Moreton Bay Regional Council.

Pine Rivers Heritage Museum is open Tuesday - Friday: 10.00am - 3.00pm, Saturday: 10.00am - 2.00pm and Sunday: 9.00am - 2.00pm.
