Red Hill Show celebrates 90 years

The Red Hill Show is one the state’s most popular agricultural shows, and on Saturday, March 10, the Red Hill Showgrounds will come alive with activities and attractions befitting its 90th year.


The show is well known for its remarkable array of animals, including Clydesdales, gypsy cobs, alpacas, cattle, poultry, sheep, miniature goats, working dogs and more, and this year the Fly Dogs return to dazzle the crowd with their speed and agility. The cider show will take centre stage with Peninsula cider-makers demonstrating their trade, and there will be a public tasting of the award-winning ciders from the show. Red Hill’s own published foodie, Richard Cornish, will be the show’s MC and will be joined by members of the CWA.

The public will be invited to visit the show’s historical display, which opens at 11am. The pavilions will be filled with flowers, fruit, vegetables, cooking, craft, photography and art, and the country’s best woodchoppers will fight it out for a Victorian title. There will be plenty of free music, activities and attractions for the whole family, and of course a real highlight will be the state’s only remaining grand parade at 3pm.
