2020 Bega Show becomes a free event for the whole community
The Bega Show committee are inviting the Bega Valley Shire community together to reflect, relax and regenerate on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 February 2020 at a special event. Competitive aspects of the Bega Show will be replaced with exhibitions and activities for the whole family.
There will be no entry fee charged at the gate — free admission
There will be no horse events at the 2020 Bega Show. After long consideration the Bega Show Society has decided not to conduct any horse events at the up coming 2 day Bega Show Community Event. The decision was made on veterinary advice that exercising horses leading up to the Event would pose an unnecessary health risk to horses due to the recent smoke. The Bega Show Society looks forward to conducting a horse event once there is no health risk to horses. we have the ability to refund any bookings already made by exhibitors.
