The Dorrigo Show celebrates all that's great about rural living

With all the fun of a great Australian Agricultural show and a large helping of Dorrigo magic, the stage is all set for an enjoyable and action-packed three days.

The show aims to present country life as it really is and celebrate all that's great about rural living.

It's been 12 months in making with a team of volunteers hard at work behind the scenes. It is the volunteers that make this show so special and many go the extra mile and become show members.

The show begins on Friday with some Beef Cattle judging. There will be a broad selection of breeds and the quality is very high.

A major show highlight will be the Dorrigo Show Rodeo on Friday night. It's certain to be an exhilarating night of almost non-stop bull riding. Under sixteens will take on the mini-bulls. Don't underestimate these bulls, they can be fast and mean.

You can enjoy a delicious meal and drink at the bar before the action starts at 7pm.

On Saturday evening there will a Circus Challenge and will have young and the not so young engaged in various activities.

In the ring there will be Thoroughbreds, Guy Fawkes Heritage Horses, Arabs, Brumbies, Stock, and Quarter Horses, Ponies and Miniature Ponies and a Tent Pegging Demo.

Kelpies and cattle dogs will decide who's the best on cattle in the Bush Dog trials and youngsters will show everyone how to crack a stockwhip.
