Canungra AH&I Society present...
This event organiser has no upcoming events at this time.
First run in 1938, the Canungra Show is an important social event in the community and brings the residents of the region together. It is seen by the Committee as a reflection of the community it strives to represent. It is run and organised entirely by a small band of volunteers who work throughout the year to present the Canungra Rodeo in July and then the Canungra Show in August. The profits from the Canungra Rodeo allow the Show Society to finance the Canungra Show and bring in an array of free entertainment for all ages to enjoy. Set in the Gold Coast hinterland, the Canungra Showgrounds presents a great atmosphere for the Canungra Show. Canungra welcomes people from surrounding areas to come and visit our gorgeous country town and the enjoyment of our annual Show. A list of competitors and office bearers of the Show Society through the years reads as a ‘who’s who’ of the district. Families such as the Corcorans, Finches, Caswells, Lawlers, Bensteads, Mahonys, Bradfields, Moriartys and Lawsons, to name a few (please don’t be offended - we couldn’t list everyone!) have been instrumental in keeping this great Australian tradition alive in Canungra over the years. Today it is a mix of new families and representatives of the older families who run the Show Society.
