The Country Shows Support Package aims to:

  • support the costs of organising and running COVID-Safe agricultural shows in 2022
  • ensure agricultural shows can continue with increased funding certainty
  • provide economic stimulus to boost local businesses and regional economies.

Eligible applicants are NSW Show Organising Committees recognised by the Agricultural Societies Council of NSW Ltd and:

  • applications are limited to one Country Show Support Package grant request per show
  • funding is available only for shows (including combined shows) planned for 2022
  • applications for funding must be submitted before the 2022 show has taken place.
  • applicants must have current Public Liability Insurance cover for a minimum of $5 million
  • shows that have received other NSW Government funding for 2022 are not eligible.

Funding available is based on the number of attendees:

  • Small shows, up to 1,999 attendees, $15,000
  • Medium shows, 2,000 to 4,999 attendees, $30,000
  • Large shows, 5,000 attendees and over, $45,000

Applications for funding must be submitted before the 2022 show has taken place. Applications submitted after the show has been held are ineligible.

Show size is determined by total attendance across all event days.

Shows that are combining with other shows from the surrounding area may be granted a higher amount if requested, at the discretion
of the Department of Regional NSW.
