The sheep showing event will be held at the cattle yard area on Saturday, March 6 and the cattle event on Sunday, March 7.
Running since 1880, the Goulburn AP&H Society held its first public meeting in the Municipal Chambers at 4pm on March 24, 1880. The annual event is put together by a team of volunteers.
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.
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.
