Red Hill Show

2020 will see the 92nd Red Hill Show take place. What’s been the key to the event’s longevity?

On Saturday March 9, the showgrounds will transform into a colourful, appetising and entertaining spectacle for the whole family. The Red Hill Show celebrates the Mornington Peninsula’s unique culture, history and values. The support from local producers, agriculture, schools and community groups has made this a growing event.

What sets the Red Hill Show apart from its competitors?

The woodchop grandstands are packed to the rafters with some of Victoria’s best while our Cider Show, now the second largest in the country, is both informative and offers a chance to taste some of Australia’s best ciders.

What makes the Mornington Peninsula the perfect travel destination?

Only an hour drive from Melbourne and you are in the hinterland of the Peninsula with stunning vistas, boutique wineries, breweries, ciders and restaurants to enjoy. There’s a wealth of outdoor activities for adults and kids including some of the best beaches, walking tracks and tourism ventures.

What’s in store for this year’s event?

The program is jam-packed full of exhibits, demonstrations, workshops, music and rides. Once you enter the showgrounds, all the pavilions, entertainment and nearly all the kids rides are free.

What about the food and drink? What can punters expect from this?

Our Mornington Peninsula producers are the focus of celebrations and the Mornington Peninsula Paddock is full with gourmet food and 5-star producers. Did you know that Tuerong had a wheat farm? Or that Red Hill was prime truffle-growing terrain?

The 2020 Red Hill Show comes to the Red Hill Showgrounds on Saturday March 7. Head to the show website for more info.
