The Gold Coast Show announces that the Ambassador for 2021 will be CMC Hall of Famer, James Blundell

After an incredibly successful move to Southport’s Broadwater Parklands in 2018 and 2019, the 2020 Gold Coast Show plans were halted, along with all other major events, due to COVID. The Gold Coast Show Management Committee have been working hard on the development of plans for the 2021 Agricultural Show and excitedly announce that CMC Hall of Fame inductee, Country Music Icon James Blundell will be the Ambassador in 2021, taking the event back to the grassroots and bringing Sun, Surf and Country together.

The Gold Coast Show Society President, Josephine Tobias, says she is looking forward to bringing a new direction to the way the show creates memories for today. “I am thrilled to have James as the face of our Show for 2021. Having completed his schooling here on the Coast, he epitomizes the country heritage we embody. Our iconic show holds so many memories for not only our community, but for the Gold Coast and it will continue to be part of the cultural fabric of our city.” She adds. “The Show’s connection to the community has never been stronger and COVID has shown a clear need to nurture our sense of spirit and support of the Arts as well as agriculture and local business.”

Gold Coast Show Ambassador, James Blundell says. “Growing up in regional Queensland, the local Agricultural Show was always the highlight of the year. A great opportunity for everyone to gather, catch up, display their various produce and livestock, and swap enough gossip to sink a battle ship.” James explains, “To be asked to Ambassador the 2021 Gold Coast Agricultural Show is an absolute delight”. James adds, “Bringing the country to town in such a dynamic setting genuinely opens up an opportunity for families and kids, to enjoy close proximity to animals, witness closely and personally the amazing effort that goes into fine produce, and to re-engage in simple country hospitality. This year’s show will draw an unprecedented crowd and I look forward to the build up with great anticipation, and thoroughly appreciate the opportunity to tell the story’
