It comes with great sadness and disappointment to report that the Townsville Pastoral Agricultural & Industrial Association have officially cancelled the annual Townsville Show scheduled for Friday 3rd July – Monday 6th July 2020. This decision did not come lightly however due to the worldwide coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the increasing social distancing measures and mass public gathering restrictions have made this year’s Show unlikely to proceed ahead.
As a not-for-profit charitable organization, we are dedicated in providing the community with family friendly entertainment and events year after year, however our first priority is the safety and well-being of the public as well as all of the staff and business vendors. With that being said, we could not risk running an agricultural Show at the expense of the public’s health.
The countless hours our volunteers have given to help prepare the Show competitions have played a major role in the Show’s success, and we would like to acknowledge all of their hard work as without their support it would not be possible without them. We hope to continue supporting local businesses now more than ever and we will continue to operate within the strict guidelines of the State Government and health authorities.
On behalf of the entire Association, I would like to thank North Queensland for their endless support of the Townsville Show Society. We look forward to bringing the Show to our community again next year.
