New café opening at St Ives Showground

The former kiosk has been refurbished and will open to the public from Saturday 8 October at popular St Ives Showground.

In exciting news for the local area, a new cafe will open at St Ives Showground to cater to those enjoying the incredible playground, walking their dogs on the oval or anyone enjoying any of the numerous events and activities now taking place at this great community hub.

The new café was upgraded as a result of NSW Government funding awarded to the Council during the pandemic.

St Ives Showground obtained over $2 million worth of grants for a range of improvements, including new access roads and upgrades to buildings including the former kiosk.

The café has been completely refurbished with a new roof, commercial kitchen and outdoor seating among the improvements.

The café is located next to the main arena and close to the new playground and the Tree Tops high ropes course.

It will open to the public from Saturday 8 October for 6 days a week (Tuesday to Sunday) between 8am and 4pm, serving light meals for breakfast and lunch. The café will also be open for extended hours during major events.

Mayor Jeff Pettett said the opening of the café was a welcome addition to the Showground.

“In the last two years the Showground’s popularity has soared, with new attractions such as the regional playground and the high ropes course.”

“We are very thankful for the government grants allowing us to make significant upgrades to the Showground so we can host popular events such as the weekly fresh produce market.”
