I was delighted to officially open the 107th annual Circular Head Show at the Stanley Recreation Ground today.
Circular Head has been delivering an entertaining and community-focussed agricultural show since 1907, only missing a few years due to war and epidemics.
The show has always acted as a family friendly meeting place and day out for local rural communities, an important time for our community to check-in with each other and with Coasters drawn to the district.
There has been much recent press about the pressures on our agricultural sector from dry seasonal conditions, and we cannot underestimate the role this gathering can play in supporting each other through difficult times.
The Show provides an opportunity for patrons to mingle with producers and experience up close the livestock, crafts and other rural skills on display, from both large and small producers.
The Show is just as vibrant and relevant as it was over a century ago. Events like the Trade and Export cattle competition supported by Greenham Tasmania play an important role in educating producers about the requirements of the local and export markets they supply.
For an authentic Tasmanian agricultural show experience that will entertain the whole family, locals and visitors alike, you can’t go past the Circular Head Show.
