I suspect that I'm a tad late to the Queensland Show Day 'parties' for 2022 and have missed the fabulous Annual Shows thus far this year, but to make up for this serious omission glitch, will give you a quick heads-up on the exciting Queensland Show Days about to happen throughout May, starting on Friday 6 May. Believe me, the variety is endless, with tempting offerings for all Show lovers.
From the ute muster to fashion parades, show jumping and pig racing, there is no shortage of things to see and do, when the Roma Show rolls into town this May.
Since 1873 the Roma Agricultural Show has been part of the fabric of the Roma community, celebrating everything wonderful about living in the country. Over two days, the must-do Roma Show presents a jam-packed itinerary of competitions, demonstrations, displays, arts, crafts, entertainment and amusement rides. Bassett Park will be filled to capacity with crowds arriving for the wood chop, snake displays and the pet parade.
Teenagers and kids love hanging out at sideshow alley, while the older crowds head off to the sheep dog trials and to appreciate the displays of art, pottery and floristry.
For those show-goers who love the Show for the food specialities, rumbling tummies will delight in the loaded spuds, hot dogs, waffles and crepes.
The Mundubbera Show is a fabulous fun-filled two-day event for the whole family. Since 1921 the Mundubbera Show has proudly showcased the Mundubbera regions' livestock, produce and creativity. With live music, sideshow alley, rodeos and showring events, there is definitely something for everyone.
The Ipswich Show is celebrating its 149th anniversary in 2022 and the festivities are going to be humungous!
Celebrations will kick off on Friday 13 May and continue throughout the weekend with show favourites, including nightly fireworks, sideshow alley, animals, arts, crafts, FMX Kaos, Jet Car, Monster Trucks, showboats, demolition derby, pig racing, sheepdog demonstrations and so much more.

With a three-day program of fabulous events celebrating the Gympie community, why not make a whole weekend of it. Visitors have 'horsey' events, not-to-be-missed Rodeo events, competitions, carnival rides and so much more to look forward to. The Gympie District Show is definitely one of the fun-filled Annual Shows to bookmark.

Alpha is a small rural township located in Central Western Queensland, in the Barcaldine Regional Council. Alpha is regarded as the 'Gateway to the West' and is known as one of the richest cattle grazing areas in Queensland.
With a jam-packed Show Schedule incorporating everything from birds and poultry, championship dog showing, prime cattle, stud cattle, working dogs to woodchopping, visitors to the 55th Annual Alpha Show are in for a treat in 2022.
Show lovers who also love small rural towns, should head to the annual Capella Show with its showcasing of horse-y events, stud cattle, poultry and caged birds plus the very popular wood chopping event. Camping is also available in the area for those who would love a weekend away.
From Longreach to Ipswich and everywhere in-between, bookmark the dates and locations, May is the month for not-to-be-missed family show days and agricultural experiences.
