As president of the Mildura Show Society it is a pleasure to welcome you to the 70th Mildura Show and invite you to experience our show.
Once again the show is proudly supported by a number of sponsors and we welcome Duxton Vineyards as our naming right sponsor for this year. I would also like to extend thanks to businesses, sponsors and supporters who through their contributions make this the second largest country show in Victoria.
