Kenilworth Show and Rodeo - WoodchopThe annual Kenilworth Show and Rodeo is here on September 15 with highlights including show jumping from 8am and show horse events in two rings commencing at 8.30am.

At 10am you have two choices: the NRA All Round Rodeo or the woodchop events including chainsaw post ripping. There is also a new event during the Rodeo lunch break – a dog jumping competition with prize money totalling $200.

Hot and cold food is available all day from the canteen and the bar is open from 10am to 10pm.

Side shows have plenty on offer: show bags, dodgems, giant slide, jumping castle, an animal nursery, and racing piglets. There are also trade sites, and Pavilion exhibits including cooking, photography, horticulture, textile art and a junior section.

Night time entertainment begins at 7.15pm, with a laser light display, and band “Audible Lines’. The canteen is open for dinner and there will be raffles along the way. This is an event not to be missed!

Kenilworth Show was first organised by the Kenilworth Community on the Mary River Flats at Gheerulla in 1919.

In 2019 Kenilworth will be celebrating 100 years since the first show and the organisers are seeking information on past shows. Do you have old photographs, programs, trophies and ribbons? If so, they would love to hear from you. Send your stories to whitemantap@bigpond.com to help make 2019 the show of shows.
