The 2017 Maitland Show

Following our very successful Saturday show in 2016 the committee has decided to stay with a Saturday show day. Our 2017 show will be held on SATURDAY 11th MARCH 2017. Save this date in your diaries and come along for a family day of fun and activities. Maitland's own 'Old Fella' Rod Gregory of Australia's Got Talent fame will be opening our 2017 show.


The 2017 Maitland Show Committee is already busy planning the exciting entertainment for the day. We have some of the old favourites returning as well as some new entertainment.

Gary Baxter will be returning with his V8 utes for some more action on the Elias Smith Oval.

A few years ago we had Australia's Pig Racing Team making their debut at the Maitland Show. This year they will be returning with a whole new show.

Our R/C Trucks will be back again with a brand new and improved track.

If you missed your chance to race Baarbaara and Shorn our racing sheep they will be returning. 

Healey's Animal will again provide animals for the petting zoo.

Rides and sideshows for the whole family.
