The Blacktown Show Presidents Message
On behalf of the members of the Blacktown City Show Society Inc, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to this, our 97th Annual Show.
Once again we have two days of action-packed fun with entertainment the whole family can enjoy.
This is an excellent opportunity to remind us of our agricultural heritage. Apart from the traditional things one can expect to see at an Agricultural and Horticultural Show the following will also be on display. These include the Woodchopping, Sheep Shearing, Caged Birds, Poultry, Horticulture, Arts & Craft, Cooking & Needlework competition and displays.
This year’s major attraction in Centre Ring is the FMX Kao Freestyle Motocross Team. The major attraction on the main stage is Elvis in Concert featuring David Cazalet and Johanna Hemara, yodelling Princess to Queen of Country.
Our Ute Muster & Car Show on the Sunday has continued to be a success and as usual, we will be holding our charity auction after the presentation to the winners to raise funds for the struggling farmers.
Sunday will also feature our Search for a Star Talent Quest which has launched many new careers in the entertainment industry over the years.
I would like to thank our sponsors who continue to give so generously and make this major community event possible, in particular Blacktown City Council, who not only sponsor the Fireworks Spectacular but maintain and upgrade the showground.
Finally, I extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to the members of my Show committee who spent many hours putting the Show together.
I look forward to seeing you at the Show.
Wilma Drower, President
