Novelty Event

Each year the Dalgety Show runs its novelty event. The theme for 2019 is "Sheep"

You can make as many as you like, use any materials you like, any shape or size. There are no age limits - it's open for young and old! Make it, glue it, sew it, weld it, nail it or paint it from anything you can think of! We are excited to see what creatures appear on the day!

Deliver entries to the Concrete Bunker (near the sheep pavilion) before 9.00am on the day of the Show. Judging will be at 11.00am on show day.

For further details on the Novelty Event, phone Liz Wright on 02 6456 5017.

The stunning Quilt Exhibition, with entries expected from as far afield as QLD, Sydney and Canberra, and the wonderful Needlework and Knitting entries, will be on display at the Dalgety Memorial Hall, just across from the showground (opposite Buckley’s Hotel). For those entering the schedule will remain the same as last year, with quilts due for hanging at the Dalgety Hall by 9:00am on Saturday 2nd March, or dropped off at The Fabric Salon in Cooma by Wednesday 27th February 2019.

Escape the sun for a while and enjoy the Pavillion exhibits. From veggies and flowers, to home brew and scones, the Pavilion will tempt your taste buds and inspire your senses. For all those home brewers out there – why not save a few bottles and enter them in show. The children’s exhibits showcase the young talent we have in the region and the baked goods are a delight… who will have the best chocolate cake in 2019?
