Show us a good time

Woodchopping is one of the classic attractions at the local show.

Weekend. An event 110 years strong is only made so by its community.

This year, the show returns with all of your favourites such as equestrian events, woodchopping, cattle competitions and the popular animal nursery.

Along with the popular chopping events, there will be a two-shoe tree felling class, an event that has not been seen at the show for some years.

There will be the usual array of floral displays, cooking, fresh produce, photography, craft and school entries, with a new section for fermented products.

Look out for the fierce competition in the prestigious Christmas pudding and rich fruit cake classes and new decorated cupcake class.

A major feature of the show is the Tasmanian Agricultural Shows’ young beef and dairy cattle paraders championship.

For the second year, Circular Head will host the state final of the young judging in the dairy classes. Winners will represent Tasmania at the national judging next year.

And there’s more in the cattle field, with three boutique breeders making an appearance as well as miniature goat breeders.

The ‘On the Hoof’ competition returns, attracting around 50 entries from the best pasture beef from all along the coast.

This year will see an expansion of last year’s meat demonstration by Josh Perry of Perry’s Quality Meats, under the banner of Graze the Region, with cooking demonstrations showcasing local and state produce all day from 10am to 4pm with a lunch break for the official show opening, by Peter Greenham Jnr.

The Showgirl and Showboy competition will follow the official proceedings, and there will be plenty of live entertainment to follow including Chase and Marshall from Paw Patrol, Rino Morea, Gomez and Friends, roving performers, displays and much more.


The Circular Head Agricultural Society’s 110th annual show will be held at Stanley Recreation Ground on Saturday December 8. Cost is $10 for adults, $5 for children or kids under five go free. For more information, email or call 0456 003 609 or like the Facebook page.

The entrance on Marine Esplanade will be manned from noon until 7pm on Friday December 7. Come along on Friday evening and watch the judging of the paraders and judging classes, commencing at 5.30pm. A wrist band will allow entry the following day.
