“As part of the requirements mandated by Qld Health, the Texas Show Society has had to make a number of changes to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all those who attend the 2021 Texas Show.
All patrons, exhibitors, competitors, staff, groundspace and retail outlets must register their details for the purpose of contact tracing. Failure to supply these correct details will mean refusal to enter the grounds. We are asking that everyone with a smartphone download the ‘Check in QLD’ App before arriving at the gate. If you do not have access to this technology, the volunteers at the gate will have iPads and will be able to do this for you.
We are also asking that people who attend the show use contactless forms of payment as much as possible. There will be an ATM on site and cash will still be accepted if you prefer.
Whilst on the showgrounds we are asking that everyone maintain and observe the social distancing requirements of 1 person per 2 sqm (indoors) and 1.5m (outdoors) between people unless in a family group. We have had to make some changes to the movement of patrons at the bar, bar-b-que and in the pavilion. We ask that everyone helps out and follows the signage and please observe capacity restrictions when indoors.
There will be sanitiser stations and regular cleaning of the facilities within the grounds and ask that all Patrons use the hand sanitiser at regular intervals.
The committee of the Texas Show Society thank you for your help and understanding as we all strive to make the 2021 show a safe and enjoyable event for all. For any further information please contact Kate Gray 0409030173”
Welcome to the 2021 Texas Show!
What a couple of years the district has had! Drought, Covid and now a flood.
Despite all of this and a year of absence last year the Texas Show is back, hopefully bigger and brighter than previous years which mirrors the resilience and optimism of our wonderful community.
It is awesome to see so much green grass and moisture in the ground which all goes well for the coming season.
This year the Show will be opened at 12.00pm by James Blundell, a prominent musician and song writer who grew up in the Stanthorpe/ Texas area. Hoping he might even sing a song for us!
The show competition will begin on Saturday morning with all the scheduled events including the pavilion sections, judging of all horse events in the main arena along with show jumping and dressage events.
Entertainment this year can be enjoyed by the whole family. Monster trucks on both days, rock wall climbing, fireworks, side show alley, mutton buster on Sunday and the rodeo starting at 2.30pm Saturday afternoon. Not to mention our band this year “Golden Creek “starting after the fire works on Saturday night.
Great to have the camp draft back this year which really helps underpin the show. Thankyou to Allan and Dani Colley for their Organization and all the people that have donated cattle.
Thankyou again to our hard-working committee for your efforts to make the show happen.
Raised on a sheep and cattle station near Stanthorpe which he still manages today, James carved out his career in country music at a young age, winning the Star Maker title in 1987 at the age of 23 and awarded best new talent at the Country Music Awards of Australia in 1988. His self-titled debut album, released in 1989, saw him recognised as Male Vocalist of the Year at the Country Music Awards of Australia in 1989 and 1990.
A string of platinum albums followed including success in the top 10 pop charts, an ARIA Award win and a major record label deal in Nashville. James was the first young country music artists to walk this path and proceeded to change the face of Australian country music forever.
We are very excited to be having a 2 day campdraft and rodeo at this years show. Rodeo will start at 2.30pm on Saturday and Campdraft action starts early on Saturday and continues on Sunday.
