The Lions Show 14th - 17th July

The Lions Show which has always been a great success will be taking place at The Port Shepstone Club next weekend.

Now, in its 31st year of operation, the South Coast Lions Show wears a modern look, appealing to a whole new generation of show visitors. The Lions' show has, for the past 3 decades, been organized and run by the Port Shepstone Lions Club.


An exciting arena and entertainment program utilizing as much local talent as possible is planned for this year's show. A full fun fair with plenty of adrenaline rides for the whole family will also form part of this year's event. The second annual Lions' Mountain Bike Classic Race, organised by the Burry Stander Foundation, will take place on the Sunday morning which will attract cyclists and their families from all over the country. Mix 93.8 FM, Gauteng's fastest growing radio station will also be broadcasting live from the Show on both the Saturday and the Sunday - their first ever broadcast outside the Gauteng area.


The South Coast Lions Show is now recognised as the perfect showcase for Hibiscus Coast businesses and stands are usually always fully booked well before the show. The judging of the stands is performed by an independent panel of judges. Trophies and certificates are awarded to stallholders for the following categories : Best Overall Stand, Best Outdoor Stand, Best Indoor Stand, Best Marketed Stand, Best Motor Dealer, Best Local Business, Best Small Business, Best School Stand. This event is not a flea market and organisers encourage exhibitors to build professional stands which are in line with the theme of a trade expo. Stand bookings can be made through Lion Lady Jane Massey on 039 682 0957 or email


The event will be held from 15th – 17th July which coincides with the winter school holidays and Sardine Festival making it an ideal opportunity to promote our local businesses to the thousands of holiday makers who will be visiting our coast.


Port Shepstone Lions can take a bow. The show is the biggest local service/fund-raising project undertaken by volunteer members of a single service club. As a once-off it would have been great. To have kept it running and growing for 31 years is truly an incredible achievement!
