In collaboration with the Berwick Show Committee, local council and community leaders, a Matt Guy Liberals and Nationals Government will invest $200,000 over four years to increase inclusiveness at the Berwick Show.
A true community event, the annual Berwick Show is a landmark event for the rapidly growing Casey region, with a history stretching back 170 years, and attracting tens of thousands of people.
Today, the Berwick Show Society is proud of the significant role agricultural and horticultural exhibits and events continue to play in the show, hosting some of the largest livestock exhibits outside of the Royal Melbourne Show.
The Liberals and Nationals’ commitment will support the development of new events and exhibitions to increase inclusivity across both multicultural and LGBTQIA+ communities, so that the rich diversity of Casey can be celebrated by all.
Member for Gembrook and Liberal Candidate for Berwick, Brad Battin, said the Berwick Show was a melting pot of the region’s history and its diverse population.
“This funding will support an even more diverse show, better reflecting the people who call Berwick and wider Casey home.”
“Only the Liberals and Nationals are committed to supporting the Berwick Show and the community it serves.”
