About Lilydale & Yarra Valley Show 2017
The Lilydale & Yarra Valley Show is in it’s 64th year and is held on the third weekend in November – this year Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th November. The Show has a strong focus on Agriculture and Horticulture whilst supporting our local community and businesses.
We hold strong competitions in Cookery, Craft, Needlework, Art, Photography, Wool, Horticulture, Victorian Scottish Dancing (Sunday), Highland Dancing (Saturday), Sheep (Saturday), Goats (Sunday), and Poultry (Saturday). We have many classes available for children to enter and display their work. Horse events, both led and ridden run on both days. Honey is returning again this year and we are very excited to be running a cattle display on Sunday.
Our Melba Park area is our family and community area. Come along and see the animal nursery or the reptile display. We have pony rides and sheep dog trials and lots of fun activities for the kids including roving entertainers. You can watch the CFA and SES cut up a car or go through the smokehouse. The Melba Park stage runs free entertainment both days including music, magic and Zumba classes. On Sunday our Talent Quest is a fantastic example of our local artists. It’s a great place to sit and take a break with your family.
We have a fun-filled carnival with rides, games, sideshows and showbags. Woodchop competitions will run both days as well. In our Youth Club you can find education displays, a fantastic Meccano display and historical displays about both the Lilydale Area and the Lilydale Show. There are plenty of food vendors and local businesses for you to visit.
Our main oval holds dog obedience (Saturday) and dog flyball on Sunday. There are also some fun family activities. We are very pleased to announce that Dog High Jump will run again. It will be held on Sunday at 2pm.
A Youth Stage run by the FreeZa program will be on the Main Oval on Saturday afternoon and then from 4pm we head into twilight entertainment. We have whip-cracking, country rock band – RUCKUS – playing from 6pm and it all finishes off with a fantastic fireworks display at 9pm.
