150 years of the Camperdown Agricultural Show 2021 Show Cancelled (horse show may still run)

“We regret to inform you that the 2021 South West Conveyancing Camperdown Show has been cancelled due to the current Covid-19 pandemic once again.

2021 was set to be our second attempt at our 150th show but after much discussion, the committee feels that for the safety of all involved and the wider community that the show can unfortunately not go on.
Second time around doesn’t make this decision any easier on our hard-working & committed show group. We thank all our generous volunteers, sponsors, and the community for their support and look forward to celebrating our 150th show in 2022!”

BUT our horse show is still going ahead, restrictions permitting! 20-21 NOV 2021.

The first stock show was held in 1870 on vacant land that the railway line was soon to be built on. While the first show on the present site located at the foot of the picturesque Mount Leura & Mount Sugar Loaf Reserves was held in October 1881.

The Camperdown P & A Society has a long history of community involvement and service; today the grounds are home to six community groups and are a valued resource for the community. It was very fortunate that the local forefathers had the vision to acquire the land to showcase agriculture.

The P & A Society is one of only a few societies that privately own their grounds, Our committee of 100% volunteers is planning & working towards showcasing our local event to the wider community with all proceeds reinvested to improve the showgrounds & its facilities, to benefit the local community.


Below are the 2019 examples of previous entry requirements. We are hopeful for 2022 events.
