The Sunshine Coast Agricultural Show is a valuable opportunity for local businesses to promote their products and services and inform the public about the agricultural industry in Queensland.

Throughout the day, there is a range of show horses and horse jumping events in the Main Arena. The prestigious horse events are very popular during the show, and as such, they get centre stage during the show.

At 1:30pm on Saturday, you will see the horses take a well-deserved break, and the historic Grand Parade will take to the ring. The Grand Parade is a showcase of all the people/volunteers/groups, and organisations that make the show so great to watch. Once the Grand Parade concludes, regular scheduling of the horse events will resume until our legendary Night Show takes over!

Every year, the Sunshine Coast Agricultural Show puts on an action-packed Night Show filled with entertainment for every age group and family. Entertainment kicks off just after dark and finishes with a spectacular fireworks display that will leave you wanting more!

You will also find many food stalls selling hot and cold food, coffee, cold drinks, and ice cream. Entertainment will be provided throughout the show, with many roving musicians and musical acts performing at various times.
