Inverell Shows Society

Welcome

 THE INVERELL SHOW HAS BEEN CANCELLED FOR 2021. 

The Inverell Show Society Committee has made the decision to cancel the 2021 Inverell Show. The show is a community event and we rely heavily on the community and its members to operate the show successfully. We are a small, volunteer based committee and the restrictions placed upon us by Covid 19 have made conducting a show difficult. It was a decision that was not made lightly but ultimately the health, safety and welfare of the Inverell Community was extremely important in guiding our decision.  

The Inverell Show encourages community involvement to showcase what Inverell and its District has to offer. Come and watch the woodchop, whip cracking and horse riding events. Browse the pavilion full of arts, crafts and homemade cooking.

Maybe you would like to see what the town has to offer in tractors, mowers or motor vehicles. There are always plenty of animals to view whether its birds, poultry, sheep or cattle. As the sun sets enjoy the fireworks, rodeo, demolition derby or recapture your youth down sideshow alley.

Since 1868, for 150 years, the Inverell Show Society has hosted the local show. The first show was held on the banks of the Macintyre River behind what is now Coles. In 1873 it was moved to Kamilaroi Park which is now a sporting oval.

Our current location, which we have enjoyed since 1914, is the Inverell Showground which is on the Tingha Road on the edge of town.

 

Come along and join us for our show in 2022.

Membership is now due for 2020-2021 year.

 

SAPPHIRE WIND FARM COMMUNITY FUND

The Inverell Show Society is again grateful to the Sapphire Wind Farm for their support of our Society. In 2018, they provided us with funding to entertain the crowds with the Rooftop Express.

In 2019, we have been allocated grant money from the Sapphire Wind Farm Community Fund to upgrade our campdraft facilities.

This funding will be used to focus on animal welfare with the purchase of shade sails, improved watering points in our cattle yards and a new loading ramp to ensure the safe and efficient return of stock to their properties.

A special thank you to the Sapphire Wind Farm for their continued support of not only the Inverell Show Society but the Inverell Community as a whole.
