 Calling all Performers!!

On May 19th, 20th and 21st of 2023 the Ipswich Show will mark it’s 150th Anniversary and to celebrate this historic occasion the Show will host a significant program of events.

Ipswich Show Society is proud to deliver a program that truly reflects this region’s colourful characters and the agricultural, pastoral, horticultural and industrial wealth of the district. We strive to deliver our community an exceptional event, focusing the spotlight on the amazing talent in our region, that promises to inspire and entertain.

Continuing our tradition of showcasing and promoting our local talent, we are now calling for local acts, schools, and community groups who wish to perform at the 2023 Show.  Showcase your hip-hop moves, tap out a few songs, strum a few chords, make us laugh with your jokes, share your voice and give us a melody to sing along with.

If you would like to show off your talents, you are more than welcome to apply. We try to book as many acts as possible. When we book, we do it on a first come first serve basis. Register your information by completing the Application form below:
