Port Elliot Show 2017


Mosey on down to the Port Elliot Country Show this October!

Springtime in Port Elliot means only one thing… The much anticipated annual Port Elliot Show!! After the disappointment of 2016 with the show canceled due to flooding of the grounds, the committee and conveners have said they are working hard to ensure this year is a “Beauty!”

For 139 years now, the Port Elliot Show proudly presented by the Southern Agricultural Society, has been a local institution, showcasing the best food, produce, art and creativity the region has to offer.

On Saturday 7 October, the SA All Breeds Dog championships will return, with Horses in Action (Show Jumping, Show Horse and Novice) again taking centre stage on Sunday.
