A record breaking crowd of over 20,000 people took advantage of the  perfect weather to gather at Beaudesert Showground.

Show patrons enjoyed two days of rides, agricultural classes, art and photography displays as well as the all breeds dog show.

The Ag Ed Classes were again held on Thursday before the show, with a large number of local primary schools attending.

Local business owner Kitty Hall of Budget Screens and Blinds said having a stall at the show was a great way of meeting with customers and the community face to face and led to enquiries throughout the year. 

Beaudesert Show Society President, Ian Harrison said the weekend was a success for everyone involved and for the town.    

“It was wonderful to see the crowds coming in through the gates and enjoying the great entertainment provided by the Beaudesert Show Society,” he said.

“I would like to thank all the volunteers including stewards and judges who helped over the weekend.   

“As well thank you to all the stall vendors including the community groups who attended, the Showmen’s Guild for providing the side show rides and entertainment.”  

“A special thank you to our ring announcer Frances Green.  This year was Frances’ first time announcing at Beaudesert and we are looking forward to many more years of working together.”
