Oakey Show 2022

Preliminary planning is underway to stage the rescheduled Oakey Show on a new date, Saturday the 27th August, at the Oakey showgrounds.


Several agricultural shows were either postponed or cancelled earlier this year due to the COVID pandemic, with Oakey being one of them. 

At the time, government regulations required show societies to check in patrons for the status of their COVID vaccines when entering showgrounds. 

It was deemed necessary that a security guard would need to be employed on the admission gate to perform this task, which was an added expense
as the majority of show society volunteers are elderly.

As these restrictions have now eased, a new date has been selected in August. 

In a departure from the usual show program, the day will consist of a team penning event, pig races, championship dog show, market stalls, food vendors, local dance groups, entertainment and machinery displays.

Market stall and other enquiries may be emailed to oakeyshowsociety@gmail.com

Any young ladies interested in being involved in the Oakey Showgirl and Rural Ambassador Awards for 2023 are invited to the showgirl launch on 14th August.
