From master chefs to chainsaw races, a cider competition to the petting farm, there really is something for everyone at the 89th Red Hill Show.
Michael Demagistris, who runs East Bar & Dining at Mount Martha, will join 100 Mile Foodie’s Marlene Hoff in showcasing the Peninsula’s best produce, and this year’s show will feature a cider competition for the first time.
Several of Australia’s best woodchoppers, including members of the world champion Chopperoos, will go head to head in a full woodchop program that will include the popular chainsaw races.
Children have so many free activities to choose from, including face painting, pony rides, a petting farm, circus workshop, Premier’s Active Challenge and the Bunnings activity tent.
The pavilions will be filled with spectacular displays and livestock competitions. The gumboot throw and dog high scramble are back, the Australian Mountainboarders will present high-flying stunts and workshops, there will be industry and trade sites to explore, a diverse range of market stalls, new fairground rides, roaming performers, musos, Wacca the Musical Koala – and of course the Grand Parade.
