A Charming Rural Show 

The 2020 Show was a great success - 

despite the weather!

Adverse weather conditions leading up to the Show had us all fooled into thinking we would have nothing very much to display, however, this did not turn out to be the case in the pavilions or for most other activities.  There was plenty to see and do all weekend and despite the mud, a good time was had by all.

Watch this site for details of the 2021 Comboyne Show.

If you would like to enter anything in 2021, the schedules listed below for this year will remain very similar to the Show just past.

Sponsors

Comboyne Show are able to offer generous prizes because of our many sponsors listed. 

We have been fortunate recipients of Federal Funding for bushfire and drought recovery.

The funds have been used to hire local musicians and cover the cost of the baby animal nursery, generator hire and prize money.

 

Sponsors are listed in no particular order and the monies and vouchers, go mainly towards prizes, but also cover some of the administration costs of running the Show each year.

Comboyne A and H Association is extremely appreciative of the level of community support we enjoy from our sponsors and acknowledge all contributions to making our Show a continual success.
