The Hawkesbury Show is back in action again this year, after having to skip 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
And organisers are promising that it will be bigger and better than ever this year as it showcases the best the region has to offer in agriculture, arts, crafts and entertainment.
The show will be held on the weekend of Friday to Sunday, April 23 to 25 at Hawkesbury Showground, Racecourse Road, Clarendon.
To keep everyone safe it will be conducted in compliance with NSW Health guidelines.
On entering the showground the public will be required to complete the Covid-safe check-in using the Services NSW App.
Social distancing is to be practiced within the Showground with the two square metre rule being applied and crowd limits within enclosed pavilions.
Organisers are also advising anyone who plans to visit the show to buy their tickets online.
Tickets bought online will only be accepted on the day for which they have been purchased and will only be available at the gate if the daily crowd capacity limit isn't reached.
This year's show will feature a number of new attractions, including some never before seen carnival rides as well as sand sculpture demonstrations, a display and a hands-on children's workshop by world famous sand sculptor Dennis Massoud. For the first time there will be aviary birds on show, with some of the most beautiful breeds in Australia, including parrots, budgerigars, finches, cockatoos and more.
In the stadium the Mower Mania boys will make their first appearance while the Wheelie Bin Challenge is sure to provide lots of fun and entertainment.
There will also be the chance to see the Rufftrack Dogs - a demonstration of youth achievement through dog training.
And while entertainment and extreme action can always be found at the Show the real focus is always the district's agricultural heritage.
Over the years the Show has maintained a strong tradition in showcasing local produce and livestock of the highest quality for all to see.
As always this year the country's best cattle, horses, sheep, goats, alpacas, poultry and donkeys will all be competing for major show awards.
And if that's not enough don't forget the Animal Nursery, the Milking Display, the Sheep Shearing Display, the Working Kelpies and the Racing Pigs, which are all free entertainment and family favorites.
There's also the Arts and Crafts, Cooking, Horticulture, Fruit and Vegetable, Apiculture competitions and displays and so much more.
