The Mount Gravatt Show Society is excited to welcome you along to the 104th annual Mt Gravatt Show, to be held on 27th & 28th July 2019 at the Mt Gravatt Showgrounds.
The Mount Gravatt Show has been held at our current Showgrounds located on Logan Rd since 1918, and is host to a number of local historical buildings. Most notably, the Memorial Hall can be seen towering high on the hill. It was originally built in 1931 as the Stock and Station Agents’ offices at the Cannon Hill Saleyards. It was then transported, refurbished and reopened at the Mt Gravatt Showgrounds in July 1994.
In the 1970’s, a decision was made by the city council for the Showgrounds to be sold to make way for retail spaces and development. In response, the local community rallied behind the Mt Gravatt Show. After a decade of court action, the community succeeded in their actions, ensuring the Showgrounds remain available for the annual Mt Gravatt Show, and to be a place of recreation for the local community.
In 2016 the Mt Gravatt Show was recognised in the Lord Mayor’s Australia Day Awards and received the accolade of “2015 Community Event of the Year”.
This year’s show will be packed full of excitement. It will feature all Horse events and Show Jumping, Cattle & Sheep, Donkeys, Goats, the Wood Chop competition, Animal Nursery and Educational Pavilion, Showbags, Amusement rides, Cooking demonstrations, an Outdoor Stage Program, Fashion Parade, Baby Show and Arts & crafts exhibits. In addition, the night entertainment program features a cultural performance, FMX Freestyle Bikes, Live Bands and our Saturday night Spectacular Fireworks display which is not to be missed.
Gates open Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th of July at 9am and I invite everyone to come along and join in the celebrations. See you there!
