It falls each year on the second weekend in November, and offers demolition derbies, fireworks, chainsaw racing, dog and pet shows, wood shopping, cattle judging and much more.

It ranks in the top ten shows across the state.

The Bulahdelah Show recently posted to their Facebook page, “Unfortunately the committee has had to make the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Bulahdelah show.”

“The committee will now focus on bringing you a bigger and better show in 2021.”

The community response was one of sadness, but also support and understanding.

Anne-Marie said, “So sorry to see this.”

“A very tough decision to make & one better made earlier than last minute.”

“Thank you show society for all of your hard work.”

“I’m sure we will be rewarded again next year.”

Kathryn said, “Sorry to read this – it was so much fun last year!”

Pete said, “Understandable given the current covid pandemic.”

Bev chimed in in agreement, “Sad but necessary.”

The Bulahdelah Show was last suspended during the 1970s, but in 1983, the society was reformed and has been organising the annual show ever since.

The society also recently received a Government Stronger Communities grant this year of $6,000, which was used to purchase a custom-made trailer to help with moving temporary fencing around the showground, used during the Bulahdelah Show, Campdraft and emergency situations.
