Spectators can literally explore acres of activities while they enjoy entertainment, arts and craft exhibits, and eccentric contests.

From the speedy fence post splitting competition, the Ute muster, the wife carrying comp and the demolition derby, it’s all action.

Then there are the traditional produce, arts, crafts, farm and machinery displays.

The Stroud show will truly have something for everyone.

In the ring, equine enthusiasts will delight with stallions, colts, mares and fillies competing in their various disciplines of show jumping, hacking, equestrian and show ring.

It wouldn’t be an Ag Show without a showcase of incomparable livestock, products and produce from the Stroud Valley region and beyond, giving a true feel of what life in this real country town has to offer.

Something will be brewing at the Showground for beer lovers this year.

The boutique home brew contest boasts ten categories for the home brewer to enter their special pint in one or all categories.

The most popular category, “experimental” sees a range of unique flavours available including vegetable and fruit based beers.

Whether you are an experienced green thumb, an aspiring gardener or simply want to get inspired –the new Pavilion will be filled with the most unusual looking pumpkins as well as giant pumpkins, zucchinis and watermelons all vying for the title of Most Successful Exhibitor.

One of the highlight events is the often hilarious but strongly contested Wife Carrying Competition.

While it isn’t all married couples you will find a tenacious bunch of women who join their male team mate on a hazardous but hilarious journey.

As they cling to each other the teams must race through 80 metres of sand, take on a hay blockade and wade through a paddling pool.

Just for extra fun there will also be a junior course where aspiring teams can try their hand at clinging together as they make their way through the course.

The Australian Ute Muster is an iconic must-see attraction with Ute enthusiasts from near and far descending on the Stroud Showground kicking up the dust again in the barrel race!

Children will be entertained throughout the day with fun activities, an animal nursery, Troppo Magic show and amusement rides.

The show committee are encouraging visitors to the show to take their time exploring each element of the Show with the knowledge that the kids are also having fun.

This year’s Show may look a little different from previous, including pre-purchased tickets, social distancing and a cap on visitor numbers.

Friday 9 April entry fee: Adults $11.64.

Saturday 10 April entry fee: Adults $22.19.

ALL children 16 and under are free, but MUST hold an Eventbrite ticket to enter the Stroud Show.
