The Callington Show is known for its friendly, family activities, many of which are free. A wide range of activities means many points of interest for ages young and old, on the two ovals and in the hall, with demonstrations, entertainers, displays and things to be involved in.
******** 2020 Show Cancelled *********
Callington Show Committee recently and, with great disappointment, decided to cancel its Show planned for October 2020.
As we know, the pandemic has changed everything for now, and our decision was made reluctantly, in the interest of public safety. We cannot know when large gatherings will be restored by the State and Federal Governments. Maintaining social distancing during an outdoor event and ensuring contact tracing if an outbreak were to result from holding the Show, is simply too difficult.
We are sure the community will understand the decision we have made.
The Callington Show is in a sound financial position and we would like to sincerely thank sponsors & providers of grants for this year’s Show. We are confident that the grants can be rolled over, and that a Drumming Festival will be part of the Show in 2021.
We look forward to welcoming all our stall holders, exhibitors, entertainers, and our amazing volunteers, on the last Sunday in October 2021. By then, our brand-new Recreation Community Centre will be open & visitors will be able to enjoy a new bar, dining area & and show office on the site of the old oval clubrooms. The building is under construction and we are planning an opening celebration early in 2021.
