WHITTLESEA: Show cancelled for 2020


The Whittlesea Agricultural Society Inc. has, decided to cancel the 2020 annual Whittlesea Show.

The decision was announced on Friday night (July 24).

“The continuing restrictions associated with COVID-19, especially the management of social-distancing and the possible risk to public health during large events were the major factors for this decision,” said a WAS spokesman.

“The uncertainty of knowing when these restrictions would be lifted has made it very difficult to forward plan for our annual Show.

“We take this opportunity to thank all those involved in the Show including our many supporters, volunteers, exhibitors, sponsors, local community groups, stall holders, entertainers etc.

“We know that for some of these groups the Whittlesea Show provides a major contribution to their fundraising and annual income and we are saddened that we are unable to assist by providing an event this year.

“We look forward to providing our 161st Whittlesea Show on November 6-7, 2021,” the spokesman said.
