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.

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.
