Community members and visitors alike will be heading to the Murgon Showgrounds this weekend.

The 98th Murgon Show will be held on Friday, 19 March and Saturday 20 March at the showgrounds at 40 MacAlister Street, Murgon.

It will be a great day out for the whole family with plenty of rides, food stalls, trade stalls and a grand parade.

Hosted by the Murgon Pastoral, Agricultural and Horticultural Society, the show will have something for everyone with a high range of classes and competitions.

There are several horse events lined up as well as plenty proud cattle owners ready to show their animals.

Over at the pavilions, people will put on display their best crafts, needlework, farm and garden produce and horticultural entries.

An interesting class in this year’s show will be the collector’s corner. Here show attendees will discover some hidden treasures from old signs, cups, saucers, and coins to vintage cards, dolls and unusual tools.

The junior members of the community are not forgotten with a few classes dedicated to their interests. Keep an eye out for the Lego entries, education pieces and other junior entries.

The Murgon Show would not be complete without their iconic Ute muster which spectators will be able to see on show day. These include the State Ute Muster as well as the Local Ute Muster classes.

Queensland Health Covid-19 restrictions and regulations will be enforced. If anyone is feeling sick they should stay home.

All show attendees are encouraged to stay 1.5m away from other groups of people and to wash their hands regularly with soap and water or hand sanitizer.

Most buildings at the Murgon Show will have an entrance and exit to keep people moving in one direction. Each of the buildings will have posters advising how many people can stay in the one space.

Show attendees are encouraged to follow these covid-19 directions and sign in with the covid app or QR code upon entry.

General admission tickets will be $25 for a family (2 adults and 2 students), $10 for adults, $5 for students (12-17 years), $8 for concession and free for children under 12.
