The theme for our 92nd show is 'A Community To Be Proud Of', something that is most appropriate for Kimba.

The theme was chosen from suggestions originating from our local school students, demonstrating the care and compassion of our locals and, in particular, these young leaders.

As a small, hard-working committee we have worked diligently to foster ties with the youth of our community as well as respecting the quality our elderly bring to Kimba as a whole.

We feel our show is a day where our whole community and surrounds can come together to celebrate our agricultural roots and participate in a fun day for our children, adults and families to enjoy.

The pavilion competitions this year include wool, agricultural produce, eggs, fruit and veg, photography, cooking, sewing and needlework, junior art, flowers and floral art, hobbies and crafts and a new design and technology section.

Once again we have a jam-packed day of entertainment for all ages. Crowd favourite children's entertainer Mr Oopy will be back again this year.

Other entertainment will include face painter Specks & Squiggles, Locked n Loaded Laser Tag, bubble soccer, water zorb balls, laughing clowns, children's mascots and much more.

Additional entertainment options will be the ever-popular kid's bike race, horses in action, machinery displays and music in the afternoon by Kimba Area School students.

After the show's over, be sure to head down to the Kimba Gateway Hotel for dinner and music by popular local band Chasin' Aces.

This year we have decided to mix it up and head in a different direction from our usual Young Farmers Challenge.

Think doughnuts on a string, sack truck and three-legged race type challenges.

This event is going to be an amusing spectacle and even more fun to participate in.

There'll be a junior and senior competition which will consist of a mixed team of four.

We are excited to have a wide range of stallholders and food convenors in our marketplace and courtyard.

This will be located in the marquee on the oval with something for everyone including full catering and bar in the food courtyard.

Kimba Apex Club will be selling show bags in the marquee as well.

The Young Rural and Rural Ambassador competition is a fantastic opportunity for young people who have a strong connection with country shows.

Kimba has been lucky enough to have representation at state and national level on behalf of the Eyre Peninsula in previous years, something we wish to continue.

Kimba Show is currently seeking nominations for the 2019 Rural and Young Rural Ambassador. In previous years Junior, Sub-Junior and Tiny Tot Show Person competitions were popular and are back again for 2019.

Entry forms are on the Kimba Show website and more information is available.
