Brookfield Show Society is a not-for-profit community group that oversees a number of annual events at Brookfield Showgrounds. Whilst we are best known for Brookfield Show, other calendar dates including Long Lunch, Bush Christmas, Australia Day Picnic, Burger Bar and Bite Nite also are successful in the local community.
In 1879, Brookfield Pullenvale and Moggill Farmers’ Association, the predecessor to Brookfield Show Society, was founded. The “Show Society” was organised in 1905 with the intention of publicising the local district and produce.
Brookfield Show, first held in 1910, has remained popular in South East Queensland. In 1980, innovation of a Friday “District Day” saw the format expand to three days, with an average of over 20 000 attendees recorded in recent years.
The Brookfield and District Community Award, established in 2007, is presented at Brookfield Show to an outstanding local individual.
We also support Brookfield District Museum.
Brookfield Show Society’s Executive and Management Committee consists of forty volunteers from the local area. The level of commitment demonstrated by each person is a testament to the region’s thriving community spirit.
