The Mudgeeraba Show Society is about to celebrate its 90th show and with that will come many celebrations and reflections of not just a wonderful agricultural show but also the community that supports it. The 2018 Management Committee along with the Youth Committee are currently working extremely hard to make the 2018 Mudgeeraba Show the best yet. Our extremely hardworking volunteers dedicate many hours to ensure that the township of Mudgeeraba has a show that they can be proud of and that each year we showcase the best of what our region has to offer. I would like to take this time to thank our dedicated volunteers especially the management committee and the heads of each section. Each year they manage to lift the standard and introduce new, exciting competitions and entertainment for our patrons to enjoy. We aim to provide a platform for your family to make lasting memories while ensuring value for money. The Mudgeeraba Showgrounds is maintained year round by a very small group of dedicated men under the leadership of Mr Brian Jones. Many hours are volunteered each week to ensure the grounds are kept neat and tidy. I would like to acknowledge their dedication and thank them for this. The Society would love to invite you to join our friendly, show family. We would love to have your thoughts, ideas and of course willing hands. By becoming a member you are afforded the advantage of invitations to all show functions that are held throughout the year along with unlimited entry to the show. You will also experience the pride in knowing you were part of creating, The Best Little Ag Show on the Coast’. Many community run organisations find it tough to gain the funds necessary to hold a great event and at times it can be overwhelming. The Mudgeeraba Show Society is fortunate to have the valued support of many generous sponsors, both small and large and we can't thank them enough. I would like to take this time to thank the City of Gold Coast and Queensland Government for their continued assistance insuring the Mudgeeraba Show will always be a success. The 90th Mudgeeraba Show will again feature amazing horse, poultry, goat, sheep and cattle competitions , along with an ever expanding pavilion display. We are always extremely proud of our Heritage Section that showcases a little bit of the past brought back to life. Last year we saw the implementation of the Farrier’s Competition and yabby races and we are excited to say they will be back, bigger and better than before. Along with all of the traditional show fare of carnival rides, show bags and the animal nursery we will also be displaying produce and wares unique to our region, along with exhibits from many local community groups.The management team are also busily working on new ideas for patrons to enjoy. I look forward to revealing these in the coming months. This year the night program will be revamped and we know that it will not disappoint. There will be something for everyone along with the always popular fireworks display. So again on behalf of the Mudgeeraba Show Society, I invite you all to come along and celebrate our 90th birthday.
