Helping Hand for Country Shows

Tuesday 14th December 2021

Christmas has come early for Agricultural Shows across the State with The NSW Government announcing the $5 million Country Shows Support Package to provide a helping hand for country shows ensuring these much loved community events can go on bigger and better in the new year.

The funding can be used for a range of reasons, including ensuring Shows are COVID Safe, subsidising stall fees, equipment hire, upgrading Show facilities or engaging locally based artists or musicians.

Funding of up to $15,000 will be available for small Shows with an audience of less than 2,000 people across all event days, while medium and large Shows can apply for up to $30,000 and $45,000 respectively.

Applications open today and close on Friday 29 April 2022. You must apply before your 2022 Show. For further information, including program guidelines and eligibility criteria, go to:
