Mayor’s Message

Welcome to the 2022 Freds Pass Rural Show. What a great theme this year, Rural Resilience.

The past two years has presented challenges, but the resilience of the rural community continues to overcome anything that is thrown at them.

The Freds Pass Rural Show is one of the greatest events in Litchfield, with its family atmosphere, fun activities, good old rural competitions and bringing the community together in general.

This event is where business and industry can showcase what they offer our community, artists young and old can display their items and the tradition of wood chopping will continue to draw a large crowd.

The programs in this year’s Freds Pass Rural Show really bring out the best of the Litchfield municipality, our produce, products and services will all be on show.

Thank you to the Show Committee for their perseverance and resilience and their innovation to deliver 2 virtual shows in these challenging times of 2020 and 2021. Thank you also to the many volunteers, sponsors and committees that make a big event like this possible.

This year’s show is sure to be bigger and better and I encourage you all to come along, support those that support local and celebrate everything rural that an agricultural show offers.
