The 2020 Dalgety Show is coming soon!
Our 2020 Show is ON.
Whilst the area is still on alert from fires, we are determined at this stage that our 76th show will go ahead across all sections and we are excited to welcome you all back.
Many of you may have seen or heard that our beloved pavilion has been condemned but do not fear, our hardworking committee is pulling together like only they can and all pavilion sections are going ahead albeit in two different spaces across the showground and Memorial Hall.
We are pleased to announce that our 2020 Show Opener is Mr Don Elgin.
With our show this year showcasing Resilience and Community, it certainly is fitting that we have Don joining us.
They don’t come any livelier than this boy from the bush! Entertaining, motivational and an all-around larrikin; Don represented Australia in the athletics at four World Championships, three Paralympic Games, two World Cups and a Commonwealth Games.
Don Elgin was raised in the NSW town of Tocumwal. Being born without the lower portion of his left leg was no barrier for this boy who would make his first Australian team at 18 years of age, become a World Champion and – a staggering 20 years later – represent Australia at the Commonwealth Games.
President Julie Hedger and her committee are all looking forward to welcoming you all to Dalgety on Sunday March 8th and keep an eye out for our 2020 Schedules.
Keep your Show Eve Saturday night free too! We would like to invite you all, your families and friends to our first ShowEve BBQ and rides night. This is a great way to also welcome all of our horse entrants and their families who travel a large distance to attend our show to a relaxed night with dinner and a few free rides before we head into our show day.
Keep an eye out on Facebook and check back to the website over the next few weeks as these details are announced.
