Holiday Fun Without Breaking The Budget

Slime-making workshops are always a hit with the kids

While 2020 hit the Samford Show hard, the event is back, bigger than ever in this year on the 10th and 11th July. As always, the show will have a focus on fun filled, family entertainment.

‘After a year’s delay due to COVID, we are really excited and ready to celebrate the return of the Samford Show this year,’ said Samford Show President Terry Hogan. 

‘Our focus has always been about providing affordable family entertainment in a safe and secure environment. With our wide, open spaces and fresh country air we are really turning on the attractions this year to bring our guests even more fun.’  

The Samford Show Entertainment Committee has a huge lineup of award winning entertainers, including Street Science stage show and workshops, Aussie FMX, Ashton’s Globe of Death and the Ashton’s Circus, and Dreamtime Reptiles to name a few. 

Samford mother of three, Stacey Bathe says, ‘We love the Samford Show. We have three kids under the age of seven and it is a great way for us to spend time as a family creating some great childhood memories – and who doesn’t like the Aussie FMX team performers?’

The increasingly popular Samford Dog Jump and now Miniature Dog Jump will be held around lunchtime Saturday. Champion woodchoppers will be competing throughout the weekend culminating in a huge showdown of raw strength. 

Sideshow Alley will again have a multitude of rides on offer

For a little bit extra,  showbags will be on offer and of course the many rides that sideshow alley has to offer.  A food festival full of our favourite food vans will also be on offer throughout the weekend. 

Samford Show organisers are predicting one of the most successful shows of its kind in Queensland since the onset of COVID-19.  A COVID-safe plan negotiated with Queensland Health will allow patrons to feel safe and protected while observing some basic rules such as social distancing.  

BUT as Show Society President Terry Hogan points out, the Showground is a very big site for people to spread out and not feel crowded. ‘We are encouraging patrons to pre-purchase their tickets through an online system that will go live at the end of May, and everyone has to sign in at the gate on the QR COVID app which is easily downloaded onto your phone.’

Gates open on Saturday and Sunday at 8am with the fireworks kicking off at 6.30pm on Saturday night.

The Samford Show is located on Showgrounds Drive, Highvale. For online ticket sales please book now here.
