Originally run by the P and A Association, the Glen Innes Show has brought the community together since its inception in 1869. A blend of the best the country has to offer, with arts and craft, fairground rides, the latest in farm machinery, first class showjumping, an unrivalled cattle pavilion display, poultry, sheep, even sports shearing, trade expo and the popular Gourmet Fiesta marquee with local product and produce displays & cooking demonstrations. Wind down at the popular show bar, or enjoy a steak sandwich at the barbecue. Perhaps rest your feet at the historical tea-room and savour the old-fashioned meals and a fresh pot of tea, or just find a shady spot under the glorious avenue of trees lining the grounds and watch the world pass by.

The Glen Innes Show is conducted over three days and is jam-packed with excitement and entertainment for all age groups and interests. It is highly regarded in the northern sector of New South Wales. This Show has been described in Parliament, by the local State member, as the “Royal of the North”.

In 2018, as the 150th anniversary of this rural icon, it will have a full schedule of events including 39 sections from Livestock to Folk Art. There will be a non-stop ring program featuring plenty of agricultural exhibits, woodchopping events, horseriding, a Demolition Derby, fabulous special attractions and a great fireworks display.
