While the Gawler Show is still about the variety of competitions based on Agriculture, Horticulture and Floriculture, it has also grown and adapted to continue to suit the requirements of people from all over the district. As the township of Gawler grew, its focus on agricultural pursuits has changed and the current Gawler Show goes to great lengths to incorporate educational elements to ensure the history and integrity of agricultural shows does not cease to exist.
Today, the annual Gawler Show is Gawler’s key tourism event and hosts a full weekend of fun and entertainment with a gate attendance of more than 30,000 people. The Gawler Show continues to go from strength to strength guided by a dedicated volunteer army of people displaying the great attributes of country life and living.
The Gawler Show provides a unique atmosphere while showcasing the best of South Australia with many activities on offer, including competitions to enter from the Ute muster to handicrafts, food and wine, show rides and showbags, market stalls, educational activities, entertainment from local, national and international backgrounds, and so much more.
Our vision is for the Gawler Show to be the Region’s premier Agricultural Show – by bringing communities together; by focusing on the continued growth and success of the Gawler Show; and by continually developing the Gawler Show as a world-class Agriculture and entertainment show every year.
