Stroud Show 2019

26 and 27 April 2019

There is something for everyone at the Stroud Show from fast and furious fence post splitting, pig racing, a wife carrying comp, demolition derby, inaugural Brumby 250 Tournament, and whacky lawn mower races to an animal nursery and magic shows for the little ones.

The sights and sounds are like no other, with a variety of amusement rides and novelty events providing a truly unique family day out as well as arts and crafts and a variety of local food stalls to enjoy, all in the beautiful country hamlet of Stroud, just an hour north of Newcastle.

Jump starting the Show will be the Dog High Jump, with light-footed K9s scaling a wall to reach heights of up to 2 metres.  The event will see a small and large dog category with the overall winner being crowned top dog for 2019. 

Saturday Show goers will see the final of the Brumby 250 Tournament – four elite trainers, four wild horses and 250 days of training all come together for a spectacular freestyle final, a first for NSW.

The entire family will be squealing with anticipation for Noah’s Thoroughbred Pig Race, where the smart and steady pig wins the race.  It’s not a dash for the finish line in this obstacle of tunnels and hay bales, but rather a hunt to find the buttermilk.

Just when you thought the pigs, pups and ponies were having all the fun, the exceptionally amusing Wife Carrying competition is running for its 5th year!  Wives come out of the crowd and are hauled by their male team mate through 80m of sand, hay and paddling pools, all whilst the wife is hanging upside down. The champion duo will win $350 in prize money and receive automatic entry to compete in the Singleton race. If undefeated, the team will go on to compete at World Titles in Finland.
