South Australian Country Shows | Dates & Locations

South Australian Country Shows

There are over 45 country shows held each year in South Australia. Fabulous family fun for everyone, country shows not only focus on traditional show activities for agriculture and horticulture, they also feature other activities such as rides, sideshows, showbags, fireworks and plenty of free entertainment. 

Country shows are wonderful community events and a great day out for the whole family.  Attending a country show also supports small businesses in our regional areas.  Experience country life including animals of all shapes and sizes, delicious food and drinks, games and competitions.  Each Show Society runs their own website and/or social media pages which you can follow for regular updates.

Be sure to check dates and opening times directly before making plans to attend a country show.
