PREPARATIONS are almost complete for the 124th Beaudesert Show to be held on September 6 and 7 at the Beaudesert Showgrounds.

The Beaudesert Times will have a display at the show for the first time in decades and will be offering readers the chance for a spot on their very own front page with a choice of two different headlines.

Photos taken in the Beaudesert Times photo booth at this year's show will be posted to Instagram and posted in an online gallery at

The winning shot will be printed in the paper the week after the show.

Beaudesert Show Society secretary Andrea McFarlane said this year's show promised everything you could expect from a good old-fashioned country show, from the agricultural displays to the excitement of fireworks, rides and showbags.

"Friday will be locals day for horse events with the pony clubs competing for free and for the first time in more than a decade we will be having a bull riding event on Friday night," she said.

"We will also have the Norco Work Horse Challenge and dairy cow judging on Friday. Poultry judging will be on both days.

"Saturday will have throughbred horses, show jumping, dogs and stud beef cattle."

Ms McFarlane said other popular attractions included sideshow alley, the Beaut Ute parade, demolition derby, circus, reptile show and woodchopping.

"The woodchopping starts about 10am on Saturday," she said.

She said in addition to the many food trucks booked for the show, community organisations would once again be on hand to serve tasy treats.

"They include the Beaudesert Uniting Church, St Mary's, Rotary, Beaudesert Baptist Church and the community kindy," she said.

"Jimboomba Scouts will be there serving their popular pavlovas and Beaudesert Scouts with their Krispy Kreme donuts. The Baptist church will serve free tea and coffee."
