At 11:00am, judging for the Ute Muster will take place, followed at noon with Captain Awesome's roving entertainment. At 1:00pm, the sideshows will open along with face painting and show bags, and this will be followed by the Grand Parade at 2:30pm; the official opening at 2:45pm; and an under-1000cc post rip at 3:00pm. These will be followed by a Young Farmers Challenge (3:15pm); Motorbike Mania (3:35pm) and an Open Post Rip at 4:00pm. At 4:15pm, there'll be an inter-show Young Farmers Challenge between Goombungee, Crows Nest and Cooyar, followed by more Motorbike Mania (4:35pm), a Smash Up Derby (4:50pm) and Monster Truck Madness (5:15pm).

Admission to this year's Show is $20 for adults, $5 for junior high school students and free for under-12s.
