No Public SHOW DAY – 2020
11 September 2020
Uraidla Show 2020 is ON … line
The Uraidla and Summertown Show is excited to announce that it will go ahead this year but in a new online only format.
The Show will not be open for the public to attend but will see a selection of demonstrations and competitions moving online to uraidlashow.com in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Organisers have made the decision to have a virtual community event because of a desire to bring the community together in a manner that is safe for exhibitors, volunteers, stall holders and the public.
Uraidla and Summertown Show Society President James Sadler said the decision was made with the future in mind,
“We were very conscious that there is a more than reasonable chance that at least some of the restrictions of COVID will be around next year so, as a society, we felt that it was our responsibility to see what we could do to safely showcase our community.
We ask people to go online on Sunday 1 November at 11am where the show will be launched on our website uraidlashow.com and our social media pages on Facebook and Instagram – all of which will take you to our YouTube channel.
At the forefront of our thinking was the health and safety of people who visit us, the exhibitors and stall holders and the many, many volunteers and members of our community who are actively involved each and every year.
There were also concerns that how we, as a voluntary organisation, could meet the very serious demands of putting on a major public event during a pandemic.
But we wanted to give it a red-hot go, to see what we could do to involve our community, show what this part of the Hills is like and start planning for next year.
We are all very excited but extremely nervous as this is something that has never been done before.”
Limited competitions will be open for people to enter. Details will be available on uraidlashow.com with updates via Facebook and Instagram.
The exact format is still being mapped out but will likely involve pre-recorded videos and competitive sections for honey, beer, wine and liqueurs as well as baking the Uraidla Drop Sponge!
