In 2004 Maitland Show went a long way to re-establishing itself as the premier regional show in New South Wales with three day attendances exceeding 55,000 people. This outcome was achieved as a result of a joint venture between the Showmen’s Guild of Australasia and the Show Association providing for a free gate, family orientated special attractions. The Maitland Showground has become the permanent home for the Showmen’s Guild inaugural Super Show held at Speers Point. Over the last five years, Maitland has entertained over 500,000 people at the annual Show. We believe, will see its future secure, building on over 150 years plus of past performance.
