Can I bring my dog?
Unfortunately, we are unable to allow dogs entry into the show grounds (assistance dogs exempted), we have a large crowd, lots of children and lots of vehicles; all these factors combined mean we have to ask you to, on this occasion please leave your dogs at home. Thank you for understanding.

Generally, 25 years old unless it’s a special invitation display.

No, everyone is welcome!
Can I park with a particular club?
Yes, just explain to the parking Marshalls who you would like to park with. Or put this on your early registration form.
Is there camping and how much is it?
Yes, we encourage camping and making use of the free evening entertainment. Once the Brookton Caravan Park (Contact Shire of Brookton) is full we will allow camping at the edge of the oval in designated areas. There is no water or power on the sites and hence the fee is less than an unpowered site at the Caravan Park. The fee is $15 per vehicle per night and you will still have access to the toilets and showers at the Pavilion.
Can I camp on the oval?
Exhibitors can camp on the oval, however camping gear will need to be off the oval by 7am on Saturday morning for the commencement of the show. Sunday morning locals will be cleaning up the oval from 8am. The fee is $5 per vehicle per night.

Yes, on Saturday from 4pm to 6pm we have the Jetpack Solo and from 6pm to 10pm the Jetpack Three Piece Band will be playing.
Is there entertainment on Friday night if we choose to camp the night?
Yes, we have an acoustic guitarist whose musical styles range from blues to country and folk and ragtime. There will be food available for sale, bring along your own drinks and relax and
