A Walk Down Memory Lane is the theme of this year’s 90th annual Kimba Agricultural, Horticultural and Floricultural Show.

This popular event provides entertainment for all ages and interests and showcases the talents of people in the community. Everyone is encouraged to put at least one thing in this year’s Kimba show.

While the first Kimba Show was held in 1921, the war meant that a few years were missed, meaning the 90th iteration of the event will be celebrated this year.

To suit the theme there will be a display of old show memorabilia, with room for more if offered, and a grand parade is planned with some historic vehicles coming along.

The show pavilion has had a face-lift with new cookery display cabinets and a freshen up of other display facilities ready to fill up with produce, photography, needlework and crafts.

On the oval will be the Marketplace Marquee with a wide variety of stall holders and full catering and bar in the food courtyard.

Entertainment includes Cool 4 Kids, Circus Elements, Old MacDonald’s Farm, Bouncing on Eyre, face painting, Locked ‘n’ Loaded Laser Tag, kid’s bike races, rainbow road, show bags, sports shear, horses in action, machinery displays and more. In the evening guests can stay for dinner and enjoy popular local band Chasin’ Aces.

Agsave Merchandise IBC (Shuttle) challenge

The challenge is for those who have/can create something either decorative or useful from an IBC (chemical shuttle). See Wez Schmidt at Agsave if you need a shuttle to create with.

Next Generation Young Farmers Challenge

The Next Generation Young Farmer Challenge is designed to provide entertainment and promote farming which showcases the involvement of South Australian youth in agriculture and rural communities.

While these challenges have a focus on agriculture and farming, there is no prerequisite to be involved in farming so anyone from a school teacher to a shearer can be part of a team.

Get your team together for the chance to compete at the 2018 Royal Adelaide Show on the main arena. 

Young Rural Ambassador/Rural Ambassador

This competition is a great experience for young people who have a strong connection with our country shows. Courtney Johnson has just been to Adelaide Royal Show representing Kimba and Eyre Peninsula in the State Finals.

The Kimba Show is seeking nominations for 2017 Rural and Young Rural Ambassador. Junior and sub-junior show persons will also be run on show day.

The silo art opening and art prize will also be held the night before, so why not make a full weekend of it and attend both.
