Welcome to the Kimba show! Here’s where you’ll find all the information about this years show.

To our patrons, members and sponsors I welcome you all and thank you for joining us for what is the celebration of Kimba’s 92nd Annual Show.

Once again, we have a jammed packed day of entertainment for all ages. Returning after being crowd favourites last year, we have the vivacious Mr Oopy and Locked and Loaded Laser Games. We also have some very special guest stars coming for the kids to have a chat and photo opportunity with.

Additional to our incredible entertainment, we have several competitions running on show day. This year we have decided to mix it up and go a different way from the ever-popular Young Farmers Challenge. Think donut on a string, flat pack assembling type races, this is sure to be a fun event to not only spectate but to be a part of. Our Bike Race is a popular event for the younger generation as is our Tiny Tot, Sub Junior and Junior Show Person competitions. Similarly, don’t forget about our Young Rural Ambassador and Rural Ambassador programs. I can personally say that these are fantastic programs to be a part of and if you’re thinking about entering or have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Another thing we have been working hard at bringing back to our show is the shearing competition. This is not only a fantastic event for competitors but our spectators too. If all goes to plan, we will have this closer to the main arena with a mobile shearing plant.

This year we have had a little change around of our sections for the pavilion. Most of the old classes are still there, they just may be somewhere new, so I encourage you to have a good look at the show book or the website. We have added a new technology section for the school students, and we encourage them all to enter their hard work from home economics, tech studies and digital technology.

While on the topic of students we are lucky enough to have some help from the school kids to come up with a theme for this year’s show. We are delighted to announce Sienna Glare came up with “a community to be proud of.” Something we think is definitely worthy of a celebration!

Our committee has been busy thinking outside the box for fundraising ideas and we are currently planning an exciting mixed netball competition. This will be a fantastic day out for the whole family with a BBQ lunch and bar facilities. Keep an eye out for more details and be sure to register your team’s interest with any of our committee members.

I would like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to everyone who makes show day happen. To our sponsors, without them it would be impossible to offer the entertainment options and prizes we do. To all our volunteers that help in the lead up to and on the day of the show we thank you for all of your tireless effort. Lastly, to my committee, we had a lot of new faces join us this year which was fantastic to see. Everyone jumped on board with great enthusiasm, ideas and determination to make it all happen. Thank you for working so hard and making my job much easier.

I look forward to seeing you all at the 92nd Kimba Show.
