|Cairns Show Association Membership|
The first show presented by the Cairns Agricultural, Pastoral and Mining Association took place in 1891 and they have been run almost continually since that date. The Cairns Show Association's charter is to coordinate and stage the traditional annual show, showcasing the very best of Cairns and its surrounds, highlighting businesses, industries and our diverse cultural strengths along with the traditional Agricultural, Pastoral and Mining heritage. This is achieved through the help of our large membership, volunteer committee's, show competitors and our outstanding sponsors.
The Cairns Show Association is a privately funded, membership based, not-for- profit organisation.
There are 2 types of Membership for the Cairns Show:
This year there are many more businesses offering our Cairns Show Members discounts, not only at the Show, but also throughout the year. Look out for their stalls and receive great discounts on a variety of things. Details on our Membership Rewards coming soon.
