Chalking up its 162nd show with the backing of the Town of Gawler as its major sponsor, thousands of people traipse across to attend this major event. Attractions for this year include an Animal Learning Centre, with free activity for all at Nixon's Animal Adventures. You'll find the food and wine bar at the White Marquee Pavilion (incl. Basil's Beer Garden), and the Ahrens Exhibition Hall will have a display of competition sections. The Springwood Village Green will be teeming with family activities, entertainment and catering. Whether you're watching cooking demonstrations, working dog demos, the miniature goats, steam engines and old tractors or the Young Farmers Challenge, there's plenty of action going around to enjoy.

Entertainment is part of that action with soloists and bands in a range of genres from a concert and marching band, pop to rock to jazz and even country at the Springwood Village Green. The kids would probably love the Funny Farmers 'live' show which follows the musical mishaps of 2 crazy colourful farmers and their loveable friend Jolly Joy the Dancing Cow. The Working Dog Demo will have six intelligent kelpies taking to the stage with cattle and sheep farmer Lyndon Cooper from Kingston, showcasing why these sheep rounding dogs are such an integral part of farming life


There's a host of family fun to be had with children's entertainment by My Oopys Bubbles, Cook 4 Kids, The Amazing Drumming Monkeys, Circus Elements, along with school music performances and more. If you grab a Treasure Trail bag and map at the start near the main entrance for just $5, the trail will lead you towards treasures along the way. All this and so much more awaits, so be sure to check the Show Booklet, and Show Map so you don't miss a thing!
