Bourke Show

Dates Not Yet Set


PRESS RELEASE

22 February 2019

 

The Committee of the Bourke Pastoral & Agricultural Association met 20 February 2019. It is with great reluctance that the Committee resolved to cancel the Bourke Show in 2019, set down for 11 May.

The Committee feel that in light of the ongoing drought conditions which the town is experiencing, we would not be able to do justice to the show. The committee considered that the main Agricultural and Pastoral activities would not be able to be held, the showgrounds would be unlikely to be in a suitable condition and our willingness to ask our generous Sponsors and Supporters for money in such trying times is limited.

The Committee is aware that this leaves a significant gap in the community calendar for Bourke. We would encourage anyone who is interested to join the Committee, and help us to begin planning for our best show ever in 2020.

On a positive note, we will continue to run the Showgirl and Bourke Youth Ambassador programs, and hope to make that a highlight in 2019.
