The 2021 Gatton Show is fast approaching, and we will have all our schedules up on the website very soon. As we have had to address some issues due to COVID, we will still be running all Sections but please make sure you read each schedule carefully to comply and understand how the sections will be running this year. The set up in the Pavilions and in the animal areas will be different so as to comply with the COVID Rules.

One of the major changes is in the Horse area, we will still be having the Local Campdraft on the Friday morning and the Show Jumping on the afternoon of Thursday, all day Friday and Saturday but we only will be having the Stock Horses in the Horse rings on the Saturday. The Australian Stock Horse Society is Proudly Celebrating 50 Years and the West Moreton Australian Stock Horse Assoc are holding a Feature Show at this year’s Gatton Show.

Up in the Cattle area the Dairy Section will have its main judging day on Wednesday 14 July and the Young Judges and Paraders on the Thursday 15th July in the morning. This is to allow for a clean down before the Beef Cattle come in on Friday 16 July.

When you come to the showground for the Show this year you will see some changes which we have been able to make with the help of grants. The major one was an upgrade of Electrical works in the carpark area where the Food vans will be situated and some lighting and power boxes at the northern end of the grounds. This funding was given by a Federal Government Ag Show Infrastructure Grant and LVRC support. Some of this grant is also being used to upgrade the area in front of the Grandstand.

Funding from the Community Gambling Grant Fund has been used in the Wood Chop area and up in the Cattle area (tie up rails on top of the bollards in the judging rings and the new gates and fencing up at the loading ramp). Also, we will be putting some rainwater tanks on the Equestrian Centre.

The QR Check-in Qld code will be up at the gates and you will need to sign in when you attend the Show.

If you can’t download the Section, you are after please contact the Show Office on 54622577and we will be able to help.

So please look at entering something in one of the Sections in this year’s Show and come along and enjoy yourself and especially on Saturday evening when we will again be putting on a great night of entertainment.

The Lockyer Newspaper Article

An update from our President (14 August 2020)

On behalf of the Gatton Show Society I thank you for visiting our updated website and hope you can easily find the things that you are interested in on this site. Over the following weeks we will be continuing to add information and photos so that those that access our website can enjoy the experience.  Many hours of work have already gone into what you can see and a big thanks to Lochlan our Sites Coordinator and IT person and to Carrie from Scenic Rim Design.

Even though we weren’t able to hold our 2020 Show, this has given us the opportunity to update our website and start to get ready for our 2021 Show. The Show Society has been very fortunate to receive two major grants in the last few months and will be very busy getting the projects organised and up and running. The major grant was for Electrical work on the show grounds and was part of the Federal Government Agricultural Shows $20 million Grant Funding. The other was a grant for $35,000 from the Gambling Community Fund to be used for the installation of Rainwater Tanks, Safety Fencing on the Loading Ramp and equipment for the Woodchop Section.

Also a big thanks to the Lockyer Valley Regional Council on the shifting of the cement bollards from one part of the showgrounds to up in front of the Cattle Pavilion for the Judging Rings, this will help alleviate safety issues in this area.

If you have some spare time we are always looking for volunteers to be become part of the Show movement and as we prepare for the 2021 Show I would like to thank all who have been involved over the years and look forward to catching up at the 2021 Show.

Any enquires please contact the secretary@gattonshowsociety.com.au

What will this mean for Gatton Show Society?

With the Lockyer Valley Regional Council also providing a sum of money along with the grant it will allow for a new power line into the grounds, a number of 3 phase power outlets in the carpark and some extra lighting on the grounds. Also some bitumen upgrades to roads and parking will be carried out.

This will be of a benefit to all users of the Gatton Showgrounds.

A huge thank you to Trevor Beckingham for his work in putting the proposal together and to the Lockyer Valley Regional Council for the support they have given that has helped us in gaining the grant.

Also thank you to the Federal Government for supporting the Show movement which contributes so much to communities throughout Australia.
