The organisers of the Goulburn Show are busy with preparations to hold one of the largest community events in the Goulburn Mulwaree area in 2021.
Goulburn Show Society president Jacki Waugh confirmed the event is going ahead next year on March 6-7 pending COVID-19 restrictions at the time.
"There is a bit of uncertainty due to COVID-19 cases emerging. Hopefully, things will look a lot better next year," she said.
"It will be a show different from the previous years with social distancing practices in place keeping the pandemic in mind."
Running since 1880, the Goulburn AP&H Society held its first public meeting in the Municipal Chambers at 4pm on March 24, 1880.
This year, it will have a range of attractions including arts and craft, wood-chopping and the animal-farm nursery to name a few. The Pavilion will also have the finest artwork, fruit, quilting, flowers and vegetables.
It may also include various competitions including Woodchop, Young Farmers Challenge, Showgirl/Showman and Speedshear.
Goulburn Show is put together by a team of volunteers. "We are currently looking for volunteers who can help organise the show as well," she said.
Meanwhile, the Goulburn Agriculture, Pastoral and Horticulture Society Inc has received a funding boost of $2500 from Goulburn Mulwaree Council this year.
The council allocated the funds to Goulburn AP&H Society as financial assistance would be required for a possible online ticketing management system, COVID marshals, extra cleaners and cleaning supplies, distancing and other signage and additional gate controls to name a few.
It further recommended an additional consideration of $2500 may be given after the expenses are shown following the 2021 Goulburn Show.
