The Mudgee Showground is a popular space within easy walking distance of many residents and local shops. Offering a variety of buildings and infrastructure to meet the needs of the public and groups, the Showground is regularly used for shows, events and activities during the year. The Mudgee Show has been held on the current site since 1856. It takes place annually on the first Friday and Saturday of the month of March.
The grounds are a popular venue for horse enthusiasts offering long term and short term stabling facilities, a round yard, a dressage arena and a large oval to exercise horses. In addition, the Showground is located close to many trails currently utilised by horse riders.
Buildings at the Showground can cater for various events and can be hired in conjunction with events that take place on the grounds. The buildings are popular for stock sales, exhibitions, birthday parties and other social events, functions and auctions.
Groups such as the Mudgee Dressage Group, Mudgee Pony Club, Poultry & Pigeon Club, Mudgee Show Society and Woodworking Club also currently utilise the facilities on a regular basis.
The Mudgee Small Farm Field Days started at the Mudgee Showground and were located on the site for many years. Eventually, the Field Days outgrew the site and moved to AREC, but history shows that the site is capable of staging successful medium scale events.
