But the excitement doesn't end there! The Mackay Show takes centre stage from Tuesday to Thursday, showcasing the best of our local agricultural industries, arts, baking, and crafts. From thrilling showjumping and captivating cattle displays to the adrenaline-pumping monster truck show, there's no shortage of thrills at this beloved event. Indulge in famous fair treats like the iconic dagwood dog, and marvel at the spectacular fireworks lighting up the night sky on Tuesday and Wednesday. The fun finishes on Thursday coinciding with Mackay’s public holiday.
