Four legs and four wheels will be the highlights of this year’s Upper Hunter Regional Show, which returns to Muswellbrook Showground on March 15-16.
With more than 6000 people again expected to attend, the Upper Hunter Show organisers have been tireless in their efforts to present a festival that aims to both entertain and educate.
“We believe we’ve pulled together a two-day celebration that will put a smile on people’s faces, give them some amazing experiences, and offer visitors to the region some education about the importance of the farming and agriculture sectors,” a spokesperson said.

“It’s also a chance to show our support for local farming communities, many of whom are experiencing significant hardship through the extended drought conditions.”
Headlining the 2019 Upper Hunter Show will be the Rooftop Express “Heroes of the Outback” show, which has captivated audiences Australia-wide with its all-star line-up of horses, dogs, cattle and trucks.
The Show’s annual Triple B Rodeo also returns, with some of Australia's best bull riders pencilling in on Friday night.
A full program of entertainment, including live music, the traditional Demolition Derby and the Fireworks Finale, will highlight Saturday’s program.
All of the favourite events will be back, including Tent-Pegging, Whip-Cracking, the Young Farmer Challenge, Wife Carrying Championship, Tug-of-War, exciting rides and Sideshow Alley.
“And we’ll also be giving people the chance to take a more active part in our Miss Showgirl judging with the People’s Choice category - your judging sheet this year will be with your entry tickets," the spokesperson said.
"Don't forget to fill it out and place it into the entry box at the Show Office”
