President's Message

 

2018 will see the Swan View Show celebrate its 70th birthday and the Swan View & Districts Agricultural and Arts Society would love you to celebrate this milestone event with us.

The Swan View Show is all about community. Swan View has a history in farming but over the years our community has evolved more into suburbia to cope with the growing city sprawl….that said, our location at the base of the hills and the many long standing local families within our Community has seen our traditions continue to flourish with keen local support.

We hark back to our ‘country roots’ with exhibitors participating in the competitor exhibition categories such as the Swan View Show Rich Fruitcake, Jams, crafts, baking, woodwork, and arts; the annual Poultry competitions and our new Dog Grooming demonstrations. This year Miniature Goats (and Milking) will participate – visitors can take part in the free activities scattered throughout the showgrounds, listen to live entertainment, rock on down to the side-show rides, and maybe pick up a show bag or two…..Once again we’ll have our “Golden Rock” search – there will be four special Swan View show 2018 golden rocks for some lucky show goers to find.

We invite community members to enter items in our competition categories and wish you all the best. Home-grown and home-made is making a comeback. Entries have been of the highest standard and our knowledgeable judges have had some difficult decisions to make in awarding prizes!

Naturally an event like this can’t be undertaken without the dedication of our core volunteers, generous donations and invaluable support from the Shire of Mundaring, individuals, local businesses and this year we welcome support from the City of Swan – please support them as they have supported us.

We invite you, our local community, to visit the Swan View Show on Saturday, 6th October 2018 and help us celebrate 70 years of tradition – bring your family and friends, and have a fun filled day out. I look forward to meeting you there.
