2022 Spring Show Cancelled

The Committee of the Benalla A & P Society are devastated to announce that following the advice of the Vic Police we have made the decision to cancel the 2022 Benalla Spring Show due to impending flood risk. For exhibitors who have delivered pavilion exhibits these will be available for collection BY APPOINTMENT NEXT WEEK after the flood risk eases. We will have all items safe in the office. To say we are devastated is an understatement. Please bear with us as we work through a lot of logistics. Thank you again to all our volunteers, exhibitors and sponsors.

CANCELLATION OF THE 2021 BENALLA SPRING SHOW

Due to current regulations it is quite apparent that we will not be able to hold our planned Championship Dog Show and Horse Show on October 15-16 this year.

This is very disappointing, to say the least, for us and for the competitors.

We are looking for alternative dates to reschedule both competitions.

In the meantime we plan to have a Virtual Spring Show that will give everyone the opportunity to be involved! More details in the next few days…

2021 Benalla Spring Show – UPDATE

PRESS RELEASE

The 138th Benalla Spring Show in 2021

The Benalla Spring Show is one of Benalla’s longest running community events, attracting a considerable number of patrons and competitors from all over Victoria and the NSW border region for the annual 2-day program.

Given the uncertainties and challenges presently faced by the local and wider community, the Benalla A & P Society Committee has made the difficult decision to scale back the events at the 2021 Spring Show.

The 2021 Spring Show will go ahead with reduced sections and no public attendance.

On Friday 15th October the 68th Annual Dog Show will be held as an Exhibitor-only event.

The Horse section will take place on Saturday 16th October, also Exhibitor-only. The program will include Show Jumping and most of the regular Hack, Pony Club and Breed classes. Program will be online very soon.

We had a wonderful Pavilion competition schedule organized with a great range of fresh, new classes so we are very disappointed at being unable to run our usual event.  BUT! We are hoping to have some online competitions in October – stay tuned!

For our wonderful sponsors and supporters – we will be in touch shortly with more information.

Benalla Spring Show in 2021!

Save the date! The Benalla Spring Show will return in 2021 on Friday 15th and Saturday 16th October!

After the disappointment of “the year that shall not be named” the Benalla A&P Society Committee is hard at work organising the 138th Benalla Spring Show.

Since 1878 the Benalla Spring Show has been a showcase of the districts’ horses, cattle, sheep, show dogs and crafts galore. Can you bake the Best Cake in Show or grow the Best Orchid in Show? We look forward to seeing the results of the skills you’ve acquired/polished during the pandemic!

Schedules will be out later in the year. If you’re quick you can put through suggestions for competitions and we’ll try our best to include them.

Follow our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/BenallaSpringShow/ ) for advance notice on Feature Classes and new events, as well as here on www.benallashow.com !

Expressions of Interest for Trade sites, sponsorships and section volunteers gladly received. Application form & details online very soon!
