This year’s ‘Dairy Farmers’ Malanda Show is set to thrill, entertain and engage people of all ages. The three-day agricultural show will this year take place on the 25th, 26th and 27th of June. This is the first weekend of the school holidays and perfect timing for families from afar to plan a trip to the Atherton Tablelands. It promises to be an event not to be missed, jam-packed full of fun and merriment, including the animal competitions and displays (dairy and beef cattle, goats, horses, poultry, and Melville’s animal nursery), pavilion full of culinary treats and craft and, of course, sideshow alley.
Kicking off the weekend on a Friday evening will be the ever-popular Ergon Energy Street parade. The street procession is always a definite highlight of the Malanda Show. What better way to commence the weekend’s festivities than having a street party, right?! The theme for the 2021 Street Parade is Games of the World – inspired by what would have been the year of the Olympics in 2020. But the creativity won’t stop there – video games, games inspired from a book or a movie, card games, board games and sports games, to name a few ideas. We encourage all sorts of vehicles from vintage to machinery, as well as elaborate costumes, walking processions, marching bands, decorated bikes and, of course, those wonderfully creative floats. Dairy Queens and Princesses will, this year, feature on their sponsor’s float, providing spectators with the chance to cheer them on. Plus, the 2021 Queen and Princess will be announced at the official opening of the show at the showgrounds.
Saturday and Sunday
Saturday promises a full day of competition in the dairy, stud and main horse arena areas culminating with a spectacular firework display in the evening. Sunday provides an opportunity to see the inner farmer in you shine with the Farmer’s Challenge, as well as the Grand Parade and the Celebrity Hand Milking Competition. The bar area will be rocking with Jacynta’lee Glaspy on Friday evening and Careless on Saturday night both until late.
If all of this wasn’t enough to tempt you, you can also enjoy visiting the pavilion full of culinary treats, craft, and the heavy horse display. Competition and exhibits include fairy creature garden creations, biggest pumpkin and scarecrow competition.
There is something for everyone and ample opportunity for you to get involved in the fun.
