MEDIA RELEASE – 22 June 2020
At the recent meeting of the Huon Agricultural Society made the tough decision to cancel the 74th Huon Show scheduled for the 14 November 2020. This is the first time that the Huon Show has been cancelled in its 74-year history.
We understand the importance of our Show to the Huon Valley community which has made this decision all the more difficult for the committee.
The decision not to proceed with the 2020 Huon Show has not been taken lightly. Careful consideration has been given to factors including the health and wellbeing of our volunteers, community members and the many people involved with and attending the Show.
We understand that the current Government restrictions cannot provide clarity as to what the future holds for mass gatherings /events.
Despite our show not being scheduled until November 2020, the preparation and planning for our event begins ten months in advance to ensure that we are providing the best possible experience on Show Day.
We are currently investigating what events or competitions we may be able to run in November, when the Show would normally run. More information will be provided as details are firmed up.
We are looking forward to the 2021 Huon Show, as we celebrate our 75th birthday and everything that the Huon Valley has to offer.
