“We have introduced new competitions, as diverse as Lego, across age categories, for building from a boxed set or freestyle construction using a Lego kit, to cookery where we have new cake and decorating classes,” Coffs Harbour Show President Alice Rehwinkel told News Of The Area.

“We have lots of entertainment booked for all ages to enjoy, from hula-hooping to working dogs.

“There will be reptile shows, alpacas, goats, horses and cattle on show.

“Other entertainment includes mower races, the Young Women’s Competition, show jumping, historic vehicles and the Australian Rodeo Queen to lead out the Grand Parade on Saturday at 2pm,” she said.

There will be lots of fun to be had on the carnival rides and in Sideshow Alley throughout the show, kicking off from 4pm on Friday afternoon.

Organisers are still taking bookings for trade stalls across the weekend and car boot stalls for the Saturday market.

The Coffs Harbour Show is once again holding a Window Display competition.

Businesses across the city are invited to create an eye-catching window display themed around the Show.

The committee votes on the overall best display, which wins a show entry prize pack.

The Band Showcase is another introduction this year.

This is in the format of a community stage for musicians to showcase their talents and provide live music across the weekend.

“Whether you’re a rock band, pop sensation, or acoustic duo, Coffs Show wants you,” said Alice.

“We’re excited to confirm local emerging band Colour me Tragic will be playing in the Band Showcase.”

Bands can apply and book in their time spot by emailing

“We’d like to thank the great sponsorship already received and invite Coffs Harbour businesses to sponsor the show in different categories such as in the horse events, or towards entertainment or the overall show, in return for publicity through our promotions for the show,” said Alice.
