Crookwell Show back after a season sidelined by COVID

The Crookwell Agricultural, Pastoral and Horticultural Society is excited to be welcoming back the Crookwell Show on the 12 and 13 February 2022.


The Show has brought the community together for many years, and will again showcase the very best in our district.


With the improved conditions and high rainfall there will be many outstanding exhibits across the agricultural industries.


This year, the AP&H Society will be welcoming back many of the usual exhibits and competitions, and some new ones.


Freestyle Kings Motorcross will be entertaining the crowd on Saturday. They will be performing three shows throughout the day, 11am, 2pm and 6pm.


“To have professional Motocross riders perform in Crookwell is a wonderful treat for the town. We know there are a lot of families who have missed out on going to performances like this in recent years so we are excited to bring this level of entertainment to the show,” Crookwell AP&H Vice President, Ally Jaffrey said.


Sunday 13th will see the return of the Car & Bike show, wood chop, flyball demonstration and major announcements in the livestock sections.


Saturday evening entertainment will be provided by musician and songwriter Shara Rose who will be performing at the Ydinya AP&H Bar.


NSW president of the Country Women’s Association, Stephanie Stanhope will officially open the Show on Saturday at 1pm.


“Agricultural Shows and the CWA have had a long association and together we are looking forward to celebrating their centenary,” Crookwell AP&H President Ken McCallum said.


As part of this celebration Ms Stanhope will arrive to the show ground in style as part of a parade of vehicles representing the past 100 years. The parade will be departing the CWA rooms at 10.15am and arrive to the show ground by 11am.


Recently, the AP&H Society received funding of $15,000 from the NSW Government’s Country Shows Support Package to assist with the running of the Show.


“We would like to thank all of our sponsors for supporting the Show. We are very thankful for their generosity,” Ken said.

Memberships are also available via the website with members receiving free entry for themselves and a guest for the whole show.
