129th Upper Hunter Show

The Upper Hunter Regional Show has over 6,000 patrons who visit our show and over 1,500 competitors each year. The Upper Hunter Show is conducting its 129th show on the 15th and 16th March 2019. This is the largest event held in our local area. The demographic base represents the towns of Muswellbrook, Denman, Aberdeen, Scone and Murrurundi with competitors and exhibitors being drawn from state wide. The main Show will again be conducted over two days, with the Horse show extending over three days including Sunday 17th March. Although commencing on Friday, the Show will be officially opened on Saturday by a local dignitary, along with the crowning of our own 2019 Showgirl following the Grand Parade. The Pavilion, near sideshow alley, will display a host of Arts, Crafts, Photography, Produce and Cookery. Premier Horse events will include District Hack, Riding Events, Breed Classes, Australian Stock Horse Classes, and Open Hack along with the Heavy Horses, Australian Saddle Ponies, Miniature Horse and Harness Classes. The Showjumping will be highlighted by the Grand Prix Event and the State of Origin Polocrosse held over both days (three games). Beef Cattle will encompass the School Beef Cattle judging day on Friday and the Beef Breed Classes on the Saturday. Poultry classes are also judged in the purpose built Poultry Pavilion. On Friday night we will have the thrills and spills of the Triple B Bulls, Broncs and Barrels. Saturday will again have the Showgirl Competition, Wife Carrying and our Young Farmers Challenge - the winner will have the opportunity to represent our region at Sydney’s Royal Easter Show. On Saturday evening enjoy all the action of the Demolition Derby and the grand finale fireworks.
