PRESS/SOCIAL MEDIA RELEASE - 2020 Annual Whittlesea Show
24th July 2020
PRESS/SOCIAL MEDIA RELEASE – (incl Facebook & Free Press)
The Whittlesea Agricultural Society Inc. has, with much consideration, decided
to cancel the 2020 Annual Whittlesea Show. 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. The uncertainty of knowing when
these restrictions would be lifted has made it very difficult to forward plan for our annual
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 a
event this year.
We look forward to providing our 161st Whittlesea Show on the 6th & 7th of November in 2021.
