Gold Coast’s popular Mudgeeraba Show cancelled for 2022

Organisers of the popular Mudgeeraba Show have made the “heartfelt decision” to cancel this year’s event.

They announced the news in a statement a short time ago, revealing they made the tough call to cancel the show due to all of the wet weather that’s impacted the city over the past few months.

“After serious and lengthy consideration, the Mudgeeraba Show Society Management Committee have made the heartfelt decision to cancel the 2022 Mudgeeraba Agricultural Show,” organisers said.

“With the unprecedented rainfall and subsequent flooding in recent months, the Showgrounds are unable to accommodate the heavy machinery and traffic that the event demands.”

The annual agricultural event, which draws thousands of visitors each year, was initially due to take place on the weekend of the 25th and 26th of June, but was already postponed due to the waterlogged status of the grounds.

However, it has now been cancelled altogether.

“Our highest priority continues to be the safety of our patrons, stakeholders, volunteers, and livestock that attend our annual event,” organisers said.

“The Mudgeeraba Show Society will continue the exchange with, and to volunteer at, other agricultural shows in 2022 in robust support of the ongoing success of the agricultural show movement in Queensland”.

In some good news, organisers have confirmed the show will be back bigger and better than ever next year.

“We now look towards our 2023 Show with hope and enthusiasm,” they said.

“We acknowledge our members, volunteers, community partnerships and sponsors and the Gold Coast community for their unwavering support.”
