THE Hamilton Agricultural Show will be making a triumphant return in the first week of March, with some big changes to welcome back patrons.
After almost exactly two years of Covid-cancellations, the Hamilton Agricultural Show will be back on Saturday, March 5, and despite some limitations still weighing down the organisational progress, the committee are eager to get the show back to the people.
“We’ve made the decision to take a bit of a hit on ticket income, but it’s more important for the community that we get this event back on,” said Hamilton Show Society President James Beattie.
“Community members have also put in a fair bit of effort revamping some of our displays, including modernising and updating the Hall of Time to put on a show Hamilton ready for its comeback Industry competition, where schools, communities and individuals can submit arts, crafts and photography.”
This year will be the 69th time the Hamilton Agricultural Show has been run.
This year’s event will be held with a capacity limitation of 2000 people. Pre-purchasing tickets is being encouraged by the show’s organisers, with the strict limitations placed on them, meaning gate-sales may be difficult to manage.
Pre-purchased tickets can be found on eventbrite.com.au and are available up until midnight on March 4, with adults and children’s tickets costing less than $10.
