The 2023 Exeter Show is set to return on Saturday the 25th February for its 108th year, and it might be its biggest and best show yet! As one of the last truly grassroots shows held in Northern Tasmania, the Exeter Show is widely regarded in the Tamar Valley as an unmissable event, and this year will be no different. After having to make the difficult decision to not hold the event for the previous two years due to the Coronavirus pandemic, The Exeter Show Society are now working hard to ensure the revitalisation of what is a beloved family event.
Admission to this year’s event will be charged at just $12 for adults, and $5 for children over 5 years old, making it one of the most affordable shows in existence, and once admission is paid there will be plenty of free entertainment to enjoy. Tickets will be available for purchase online in the lead-up to the event, and while tickets will be available at the gate, attendees are encouraged to buy online.
Unfortunately, show jumping will not be held this year, due to no one suitable being available to co-ordinate the event. While this is disappointing, the society hopes it can bring back show jumping for next years event.
“The door is always open for a committee to be formed to run the show jumping,” said Trevor Clark, President of The Exeter Show Society.
This year’s show will also feature a Scotch Egg Competition, with a prize to be awarded for the best Scotch Egg, in addition the Exeter Show Car Meet will have a range of MG, Mack Trucks, Holdens & classic vintage cars on display.
For those wanting to experience an exhilarating adrenaline rush, this years sideshow alley is set to be the biggest one yet, with 2 new large rides set to be in attendance.
A wide range of entertainment, including a reptile rescue display, animal nursery and even a pet parade promises fun for the whole family, with plenty more attractions and attendees than we have room to mention here! Tamar Valley News will also be in attendance, offering a lasting memento of the day.
Vice President of The Exeter Show Society, Hilary Keeley also added that it’s time for the entrants into the Junior Home Industries to start preparing.
“Just a reminder for the kids to start growing their collection of vegetables and mixed fruit.”
“Don’t forget your recipes, and start taking your photos now.”
