Bundaberg Show Society is calling for entrants in this year’s competition schedule to get their entries in now.

With more than 20 categories to enter, there’s plenty of opportunity for the local community to showcase a broad range of skills, produce and animals.

Show Society President Maree See said the competition categories had been updated to reflect the interest of modern show goers.

“The old handcraft section has been revamped and is now Crafty Creations,” she said.

“This year, the Pavilion has been rearranged and will feature a new section for the Lego competition, along with the new Digital Art category that was introduced in 2022.”

Among the many returning competition categories are the much-loved cooking, iced cake and floral competitions that are popular with both entrants and audiences.

In addition to competition pieces, entrants in the Fine Art, Pottery and Photography competitions will have selected pieces for sale to the public.

Competitions are open to entrants of all skill levels including classes for children and over 75s.

The crowd-pleasing woodwork display will be even bigger this year, with competitions, demonstrations, saws and lathes all on show.

Maree said the fruit and vegetable section would be under the care of new stewards who were busy planning for a spectacular exhibit.

“The stewards are putting in so much effort, it should be a wonderful display,” she said.

The animals and agriculture competitions will also be hotly contested, with a fine display of show jumping expected.

Maree said there were already a lot of entrants in the show jumping, bringing big teams of horses to complete.

“Horses coming from everywhere!” she said.

Competition entry dates can be found in the competition schedules for each category, available on the Bundaberg Show website.

The Show Society Office is open Monday to Friday 9 am to 4 pm.

Bundaberg Show runs from Wednesday 31 May to Friday 2 June 2023.

Tickets available online or at the gate.
