The Bingara Show was founded in April 1930 when a meeting was called to form a committee.
The first general meeting was held in August 1930 where H. Gordon Munro was elected President, a position that he would hold for the next 25 years.
The first Bingara show was held in March 1931, and was a great success. Since then the show has had to survive through the great depression, World War ll, many droughts and financial situations that have seen the show go from a three day, to a two day and when things got tough a one day show. Presently it is back to three days, including the Campdraft on the Friday.
The past 84 years has seen a number of Presidents, each doing a wonderful job to keep it going and adding their own interests and ambitions to the show.

The show is in its 82nd year and is still going strong, however there has been many changes. The Bingara showground in particular has undergone a remarkable transformation. 2008 saw a massive overhaul of the show grounds as a result of the Campervan and Motorhome rally which was held there in October.
Additional power was required to supply the 3,ooo campers who stayed for over a week and as a thank you for the wonderful facilities additional buildings were constructed and upgraded by the caravaners. The showground is now renowned state wide and boasts some of the best facilities in rural Australia.
