It may be in its 131st year but the Berry Show has plenty of new and exciting additions set to impress on the weekend.
Gates will open from 7.30am to 10pm on Friday, February 1 and Saturday, February 2.
Each year the show exhibits a new agricultural industry and this years is set to be a hive of activity.
‘The Hive’, an agricultural seduction space featuring bees, will be on show in the Rural Youth Hall next to the pavilion.
The space is designed to be entertaining, fun and informative for kids and adults alike.
Everyone is encouraged to see, touch, taste, smell, hear and experience this new addition. You will also be able to buy honey and wax and see demonstrations on how to make bees wax wraps from the Shoalhaven Bee Keepers volunteers.
There'll be a bee game and colouring for children.
The Berry Show will feature a cattle show with both dairy and beef breeds, as well as a horse show, including hack, sporting and showjumping classes.
There is also a pavilion where you can enter and admire local arts, crafts, paintings, photography, flowers, preserves and cooking.
It’s a full two days of entertainment, with a rodeo on Friday night, wood chopping events, Young Farmer Challenge, Showgirl announcement and fireworks display, as well as a cafe and bar to keep everyone refreshed.
Some new additions include the Rooftop Express Show. With its Australiana comedy, awe-inspiring horsemanship and thrilling stunts, it makes it one for the entire family. The Queensland-based show will be performing both nights.
Danny Phegan and Longreach will be kicking off the rodeo with some country tunes to get you dancing.
The Berry Show is run by the 75-member strong Berry Show Committee and auxiliary volunteers.
It’s a 12 month effort bringing the two day event together, and come show time, they’re joined by another 300 extra volunteers.
The committee thanked everyone for their support.
“The Berry Show would not be the great country show it is without the huge effort from the community," the committee spokesperson said.
“We thank everyone for giving their time and energy to keep our Berry Show thriving.”
Agricultural shows in the Berry district date back to 1887, when an unofficial agricultural exhibition was held at nearby Broughton Creek.
The show was first staged on the current site the following year, and by the turn of the century the custom was firmly entrenched.
With the exception of four war years, the Berry Show has been held ever since.
Adults are $15 a day or two day tickets are $25. Children under 15 are $5 a day.
