Damien Liebelt – President of the Uraidla & Summertown Country Show
For well over a century the Uraidla & Summertown Horticultural & Floricultural Society has been bringing you an annual event to entertain and inspire, through participation and presentations.
Over such a period, there have been huge, numerous, sweeping changes. Our beautiful show hall was once down at Parish Hill Rd, and had windows all the way round, until it was moved stone by stone to be part of the present day community facility. Amazing stuff! Especially in an era before cars and trucks.
And the changes didn’t stop back in the 1920’s! Since then we’ve seen the Uraidla Sustainability Fair bring a new energy to our event, the move from a mid-week show to the weekend, and now from a Saturday to a Sunday.
The one thing that hasn’t changed is our community’s dedication to putting on a great event! When people ask me what the show is for, it’s easy to answer; the show is for everyone. Young and old, builders and baristas, there’s something for all interests.
The only way we have kept this momentum for so many years is thanks to our volunteers, and we always need more! So head on over to the Contact Us tab, and help us out with your ideas, time, and feedback. We run events and community facilities all year round, so there is no shortage of volunteer roles, and experience you can gain.
See you at the Show!
