It’s showtime for the Isaac region with the countdown on to next week’s 2019 Clermont Show.
The Isaac Region’s Show will be stocked full of fun as thousands of local and visiting showgoers herd in for the three-day event.
Mayor Anne Baker said Council was, once again, pleased to be a major sponsor of the iconic annual event which celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2018.
“The long history of the Clermont Show traces back to the very origins of agricultural exhibitions in Queensland and it even pre-dates Brisbane’s famed Ekka,” she said.
“The proud tradition of the ‘local show’ remains a focal point for country life in regional Australia.
“It brings together travelling showmen and their attractions, local business and industry, graziers and growers, hobbyists of all pursuits, cooks and creative artists. It is a melting pot of fun, excitement and adventure for people of all ages.”
Mayor Baker said the Clermont Show continued to be a fantastic showcase of the enviable lifestyle and pure people power which drives the Isaac region.
“From cattle sales to wood chopping, a petting zoo to pavilion displays, the Clermont Show Society Committee always delivers a fabulous event, so don’t miss out on great entertainment,” she said.
The Clermont Show – Isaac Region’s Show will be held Monday 27 May to Wednesday 29 May 2019. Admission prices are: Adults $10, Pensioners/High School Students $5, Children under 12 free and Tuesday’s ticket can be re-used for free entry on Wednesday.
