Clermont Show Events & Attractions

Clermont Show features a range of competitions and displays that return every year, along with a few special features as we try to bring something new to the Clermont Show events & attractions list.

Take a walk through the Pavilion showing off the talents of local artists, crafters and cooks. Step across to the boisterous and fascinating Poultry Pavilion, and continue on through the neighbouring Trade Pavilion. What to do next? Sit for a snack… or pop over to visit the dairy goats? Head down through Sideshow Alley, keeping an eye out for events in the Ring? But wait, that’s only half the Showgrounds! Beyond the Ring you can find Working Dogs competing in trials, and a high quality mob of cattle entered in Beef, Commercial and Stud classes. Trade displays, stalls and food vendors will catch your eye (and add to the bags you’re carrying). Don’t forget to make your way uphill towards the Heritage Building – that’s where the Giant Pumpkins are usually displayed.

Did you see everything? You might need to take another lap around to be sure. Better fuel up with a dagwood dog, some fairy floss or your favourite show-time treat!

Please note all times are approximate because Shows involve animals. And people.

Entertainment

Our guests for 2024 have not yet been confirmed, but we typically feature assorted family-friendly entertainers throughout the Show.

The evening entertainment and fireworks happen on the Tuesday night – who knows what we will find for 2024! The Monster Trucks of 2023 were a huge hit and will be remembered for a long time.
