The Camden Show is Back!
Camden Show … ‘Still a Country Show’
Friday 1st & Saturday 2nd April 2022
From 8.00am – 11.00pm Daily
We’re back. The award-winning Camden Show is back for 2022 on Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd April.
The birthplace of Australian agriculture, Camden really is the country near the city and with its motto of …’Still a Country Show’. It showcases all the traditional Agricultural Show favourites from the classic baking, handcrafts, artwork, and photography competitions in the historic Show Hall, to the vegetables and cheeses in the Produce Section and then to the Poultry Pavilion, where some of the best examples of birds from the district are on show.
The Heritage Lane showcases life in the past with steam machinery and tractors next to examples of today’s tractors and farm implements. The Drovers Camp offers up traditional tea and damper and, if you are interested in our cold-blooded friends, the Snake Man is always entertaining, and you can’t go past the Racing Pigs!
Our local schools compete in the Scarecrow Making Competition and the Entertainment Stage is a great way to see up and coming performers show off their talents. The Camden Show Committee has worked hard to ensure we provide various displays where learning and fun go together as well as this, we have an animal nursery for all ages, not just the little ones.
When Mum and Dad need to take the weight off, the Camden Style Pavilion showcases some of the best boutique food and wares in the region. If you are still looking for excitement, don’t forget the sideshow alley and incredible rides.
Other competitions include the sheepdog trials, utes, sheep, goats, alpacas, beef and dairy cattle, dogs, wood chopping, show jumping on Friday and Saturday with horse events both days showcasing our many different equine friends from the gorgeous mini horses to the big clumping draught horses in all their finery.
Friday night has one of the best rodeo programs from Xtreme Bulls. This year, we welcome the Aussie FMX Team to the main arena on Saturday night, along with a jam-packed Night Show program including a special tribute to our Emergency Services. All finishing with a big bang, thanks to the famous Foti Fireworks display and Pandora Macarthur and Narellan.
The Camden Show really is …’Still a Country Show’ with entertainment and something for the whole family to enjoy!
