The first Proston show was held in March 1958 and as the years went by new events were introduced as the need arose. The Proston Show Society is only a young society, but over the years it has grown to be a great country show not to be missed.

The show these days comprises of horse events which cater for all age groups with Led classes for different breeds of horses and ponys. A variety of Hack classes for Ponys, Galloways and Hacks and a full day jumping program is also in the schedule.

We have a large stud cattle program which accommodate for most breeds of stud cattle and is becoming more popular with the local schools participating. In the past years new hitching rails have been erected for the competitors.

The Prime trade cattle section has grown in the last year due to new stewards with new ideas, and cattle being our main industry in this area we are able to show case the cattle industry at our show.  

Entries in the Poultry Pavilion is growing every year with competitors traveling from further away.

A championship Dog Show is held in conjunction with our show and we have a large number of dogs from all parts of South East Queensland competing.

The Wood Chop and Post Splitting program always draws a crowd of spectators to the show. Split post are auctioned in the afternoon which helps with funding for the show.

The main Pavilion is a great meeting spot for the locals to compare their entries in the many different classes that can be entered into, such as Cooking, Horticulture, Sewing, Photography, Fine Arts, Handcrafts and Farm Produce. All Age groups have a chance to take home some of the prize money.

As well there is plenty of entertainment for the children with side show rides and clown shows. Fireworks at night finishes off a full  day of competitions and entertainment which is sure to please everyone.

Plenty of food, BBQ and drinks available on the grounds all day.
