THE 160TH KAPUNDA SHOW
WEEKLYCome celebrate Kapunda Show’s 160th year!
Chloe Trotta, secretary of the Kapunda Show, is excited about the
upcoming 160th milestone for the local show.
The Kapunda Show will be
celebrating its 160th birthday on
October 28 with huge attractions for
local families and visitors to enjoy.
Since it’s a big year for The
Kapunda Show, the committee
decided to go all out with their
scheduled events, displays and
Chloe Trotta, Kapunda Show
secretary, said that the committee
have been working hard to make
the event something for everyone
“We have a really good committee
this year, a young committee. We
have had a couple of years where
we have had a struggle leading up
to the show, but this year has been
really positive. Everyone is working
really well together,” said Chloe.
“We all agreed right at the start
that we wanted to make it a big year
being our 160th. I think we have
definitely succeeded in doing that.
Hopefully, we will get the number
through the gate to reflect that.
“It’s a really good family day out.
There is a lot this year so there
shouldn’t be any spare space. If the
weather is like last year, it should
be a wicked day out.”
New attractions for the show this
year include a Gawler Motorcycle
Club display, a wood chopping
display and an inflatable archery
course set up by the Scouts SA.
The beef cattle competition will
be held again due to the success in
past years. Chloe said she is looking
at between 30-35 entries into that
The Ute Muster is looking to be
really big this year while the yard
dog trials return to excite watching
The Young Farmers Challenge
will be a hoot to whoever participates
in the intense course or to anyone
that watches the challenge.
A few extra classes have been
added to different entry sections
to give a bit more variety in the
competition entries and allow people
to branch out in their creativity.
Chloe hopes that there will be
good involvement from school
students in the area as they did last
year with primary school students
decorating the displays with their
The CFS, SES and MFS will be
making an appearance at the event.
As will students from Adelaide
University who are setting up an
animal nursery to raise money for
their trip to Indonesia and the Cows
For Cambodia charity.
A massive bouncy castle and
slide will be full of happy, jumping
children, and a free face painter will
be there on Saturday to transform
childrens faces into colourful
animals and movie characters.
The committee has also organised
a show bag trail, similar to the
Royal Adelaide Show ‘Yellow Brick
Road’, with participants travelling
between show attractions to receive
stickers and free goodies.
Chloe said the committee has
organised heaps of stalls at the show
which will provide something for
The show will start with the
Horses in Action Kapunda High
School Interschool Gymkhana held
over the three days of the show.
Chloe is incredibly passionate
about The Kapunda Show and hopes
that everyone will come down to the
local milestone event to support the
committee and all the hard work
they have put in.
