The traditional arts and crafts are showcased within our Main Pavilion alongside local small bespoke businesses selling their wares.  Each year the Mullumbimby Agricultural Show Pavilion celebrates and commemorates a local industry or cause.  In 2018 the Pavilion theme is the Sugar Cane Industry. CK Jones Family Shoot 2017

Although sugar cane was first grown experimentally on the river perhaps as early as
1860,  cultivation specifically for the manufacture of sugar was not widely attempted until several years later. By 1868 there were nine sugar mills in northern New South Wales and these produced a total output of about 60 tons. The development of sugar growing in the region was watched carefully by the Colonial Sugar Refining Company Limited which in 1868 announced that, in return for assurances that sufficient area of land would been planted to cane, they would erect central sugar mills.
