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

This year we have decided to celebrate our show by taking it back to our roots of agriculture, horticulture and floriculture. These are the three things that every country town has in common and something I believe we need to incorporate back into country shows as much as we can.

We have been incredibly fortunate to have received major funding via the National Radioactive Waste Management Facility Community Benefits Program. We have received $47,300 to purchase a new heavy duty all season Marquee. This will provide annual savings for us of approximately $6,000. Cumulatively this provides a massive benefit for our show and our community.

On the 27th of October, we will be hosting a major fundraiser with Bogan Bingo returning to Kimba once again. This is sure to be a night of many laughs, good times and one not to miss. Tickets are available for purchase from any of our committee members. We hope to see you there.

Locked and Loaded Laser tag is set to return in 2018 after being a huge hit at last year’s 90th Show. Furthermore, we will have two bouncing castles, a face painter and Mr Oopy providing entertainment for all ages throughout the day. Chasin’ Aces will be performing at the Gateway Hotel in the evening, so be sure to drop in there for a meal and to dance the night away.

Additional to our entertainment, we will be running several competitions on show day, so be sure to keep an eye out for them. Our bike race is very popular with the younger generation and has been running successfully for many years now. Our Tiny Tot, Sub Junior and Junior Show Person competitions are definitely one of the highlights of the day and I encourage anyone who is eligible to apply. We will again be running the Young Farmers Challenge on the main oval. Not only is it good for a laugh as a spectator, but it’s even more fun to be a part of. So why not get your team of 4 together now!

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 and prizes that we do. To every single one of our volunteers, from convenors to marquee erectors to judges; all of your tireless efforts do not go unseen. To our many stall holders, your time and energy is vital to the success of our show. Lastly, to my amazing committee, never in a million years would I have thought that I’d be president of the show and it wouldn’t be possible without this hardworking committee. They really are a dream to work with and I thank them sincerely.

I look forward to seeing you all in September at the 91st Kimba Show.
