Volunteers Needed

The success of the KV Show relies on the generosity of the local community being able to help out before, during and after the Friendly Show.

As you now know it is full speed ahead for the Kangaroo Valley Show on 17-18 February 2023 and we need you. We want to make the 2023 Show a very special event reflecting the positive and supportive community in which we live, share and enjoy.

We invite those who have been looking for ways to help the community to offer their support for the Show which in turn helps to promote Kangaroo Valley as a great place to visit, thus helping tourism in the Valley.
