Mornington Peninsula Shire is proud to support the event with a $17,250 grant through the Community Event Triennial Funding Program.
Mornington Peninsula Shire Mayor and Red Hill Ward Councillor David Gill said we are glad to be supporting such a community-driven and iconic event, and the only agricultural show that has a grand parade left in Victoria.
“An important element of the day is the MP Paddock which showcases our unique food region and agriculture on the Peninsula. This is a great opportunity to meet the local food producers and try fresh, local produce from your own backyard.
“We encourage locals and tourists to check out the Red Hill Show which attracts thousands of people to Red Hill for a fun day out,” said Councillor Gill.
