This year’s Annual Orange Show will see the long awaited grand introduction of our brand new Showground Pavilion which will help house many of the fabulous displays and activities.

Following an agreement between Orange City Council and the Orange Show Society, the $1.5 million construction was funded by the NSW Government and Council and made possible through the successful partnering with local businesses.

Designed for a multitude of uses including Annual Show displays, the new Pavilion will also host the local roller derby, annual bird shows, monthly farmers markets, trade exhibits, school and community group uses, car exhibits and varied events. A wonderful asset to our City.

In addition to the Pavilion displays the Show this year will of course host the spectacular dog show and the horse events in the arena, not to mention the funny and daring antics of Brophy’s Circus with free shows for the public. Stay a while on Saturday evening to enjoy the spectacle of the fireworks, a great family event.

On behalf of the community of Orange, a big thank you to the volunteers of the Orange Show Society who make this annual event possible – year after year your tireless efforts produce a fantastic event enjoyed by individuals and families from near and far.

Welcome if you are a visitor to our City, here to enjoy our Annual Show – please relax and take some time to enjoy the beautiful surrounds and our world class food and wine.

If you are a resident of Orange, enjoy all that the Annual Show has to offer again this year, an iconic event on our yearly calendar, one not to be missed.
