The Margaret River Agricultural Show’s non-stop entertainment program makes this year’s Show an unmissable event.
From the minute gates open 10am, Saturday, 21 October with the popular Pet Show, show-goers will have entertainment options galore. Headlining the action is Australian Idol finalist Sash Seabourne on the main stage along with local and visiting bands, plus the local Talent Show running throughout the day. The Retravision fireworks display kicks off at 8pm, with Indi/pop/punk band Lines of Conviction set to rock the crowd afterwards.
The main oval will feature Show rides like the Cliff Hanger, Gravitron and the Zipper. Family favourites like the Dodgem Cars and bouncing trampolines will also return in 2023.
There will be Circus School workshops and performances, a silent disco, Highland Marching Band, Radrock climbing and obstacle ropes and wandering performers from the Margaret River Theatre Group. Get up close and personal with feathered and scaly friends from Eagles Heritage and Discover Deadly. Radio Margaret River is highlighting action from the Exhibition Hall.
On Nippers Oval, agricultural entertainment includes sheep dog displays, horse riding demonstrations from the 10th Lighthorse Brigade riding performance, McDonald’s Farm and more.
The Cowaramup Agencies Ag-Track trail will highlight agricultural and educational aspects of the Show to young adventurers who collect stamps to potentially win great prizes.
Show President Lara Armstrong says the entertainment at this year’s Show ticks all the boxes.
“We decided early on that we wanted this Show’s entertainment to be about giving locals a performance platform as well as having visiting acts.”
“Auditions for the Margaret River Talent Show, dance performances and musicians will show the depth of talent coming from Margaret River. That includes four local school bands; Knot Shore, Cords, Shrugs and Melatonin.”
The Show’s entertainment, exhibition and trade program takes place on Saturday, 21 October. Around the grounds there will be loads of delicious food vans, donuts every way, churros, ice-creams and caramel apples galore. Local Emergency Services will attend with displays and multiple artisans will be selling their wares.
There is still time to register for the Talent Show and Pet Show. Exhibition Hall registrations close 18 October. Volunteers are also encouraged to get in touch via www.margaretrivershow.com
