Ipswich Showgrounds

Come along to experience the country vibe as well as fantastic entertainment for young and old at the 143rd Ipswich Show.

This year’s program features the Rodeo (Friday night), Demolition Derby (Saturday night) and Dunny Derby (Sunday). Also, the Globe Riders make a stunning return with not 2, but 3 riders in the globe of death and FMX Kaos Motorcross that everyone loves!

Fireworks will entertain you every night as well as the Galaxy Wars Laser Light Show. The Crack Up Sister Comedy extravaganza will have you in stitches.

We welcome the African Safari Animal Zoo animatronic display and also for the first time Whimsical Imaginings with their delightful "lollypop land" display in our Exhibits pavilion.

Don't forget the pavilions jam packed with exhibits including: Craft, Fine Art, Schoolwork, Farm Produce, caged birds, pigeons and photography (plus much more).

We always welcome back the extremely popular hands on animal nursery and our Farmyard Friends area as well.

The Young Talent competition will be happening over the 3 days, so drop in and see what local talent Ipswich has to offer. We have 3 stages of entertainment including our main stage, New Hope Group Community Stage in the food court and the Lifestyle Stage in the Exhibits Pavilion.

Of course, there is the ever popular SIDE SHOW ALLEY, showbags, dagwood dogs and fairy floss.
