Iconic event was a treat for the senses
THOUSANDS turned up to experience the excitement at one of the oldest agricultural shows in Queensland from Monday, 24 to Wednesday, 26 June 2021 now having celebrated its 152nd year.
The great live entertainment; the brightly coloured ribbons decorating livestock; the knee-high roosters with their accompanying crow; and a pumpkin weighing in at whopping 158.5kgs were a treat for the senses for all who attended.
Hundreds of locals and visitors participated in the dozens of competitions, showcasing their skills, artwork, produce and livestock.
Isaac Regional Council Mayor Anne Baker said the Clermont Show – The Isaac Region’s Show emphasises the best the region has to offer.
“Local producers got the chance to show off the quality of their stock and produce, highlighting the finest in rural living and celebrating the people at our core,” Mayor Baker said.
“We have so many wonderfully talented artists, showjumpers, exhibitors and woodchoppers, really proving the pure people power of the Isaac. A huge congratulations to all the winners, runners-up and participants in this competitive field.
“We have so much to be proud of. The long history of the Clermont Show traces back to the very origins of agricultural exhibitions in Queensland and it even pre-dates Brisbane’s famed Ekka.
“The added difficulty and work to bring the event back after a year off is no small feat, and Council was proud to support the Show not just as a Diamond sponsor, but with additional financial support to assist with COVID requirements.
Mayor Baker said she is constantly amazed by the large community involvement each year.
“Well done and thank you to the Clermont Rodeo and Show Society for hosting another cracker event, and all of the volunteers who made the show possible."
