The 110th Country Show is here...
It’s only a matter of days before the Pomona Showgrounds will host the 110th annual Noosa Country Show.
On September 6 and 7, animals, side show alley and entertainment will fill the grounds and a total of 18 competition sections will take place and there’s something for everyone.
Noosa’s traditional country show will see a variety of competition sections that help celebrate the diversity of people and their talents in our community.
Equestrian, stud beef, dairy cattle, poultry and dog sections will all be on show in 2019, and Saturday brings the must-see woodchop comp beside the Chainsaw wood carving demonstration with Shane Christensen.
Noosa Show Society president, Peter Travis said he’s delighted with the shape the show is taking and the efforts of so few for so many over the two days.
“We’re very happy with the way it’s all come together in 2019. I want to thank our committee, a small group of very energetic volunteers who continue to put everything they have into the show’s success allowing us to showcase the very best of Noosa Country to so many,” he said.
“It’s a fantastic show program in 2019, and we have to thank our many sponsors. Noosa Council and the Queensland Government have been a great support along with the team at the Cooroy and Pomona Community Bank branches of Bendigo Bank who continue to be our major sponsors,” Peter added.

Equestrian competition continues across both days. Trade exhibitors and food vendors will be in great number.
