OFM applauds the return of Bloem Show

Chief Executive Officer at the Bloem Show, Elmarie Prinsloo.

OFM is excited for the return of one of the highlights on Central South Africa’s entertainment calendar, the Bloem Show. The Show will take place from 27 April to 7 May.

According to Elmarie Prinsloo, CEO of Bloem Show, the trade fair is one of only two shows in the country that successfully combines commercial activities and agricultural art. It boasts some 100 000 visitors annually, contributing more than R100 million to the local economy, while creating 1 150 temporary jobs.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the Show could not be hosted over the past two years, and the organisers recently indicated that they are ready to safely host a large-scale event within the adjusted regulations.

“Visitors, exhibitors, participants and agricultural exhibitors are looking forward to the Show with incredible excitement and, thus far, feedback has been positive,” said Prinsloo.

“It’s exciting times ahead with the ‘re-opening’ of the Bloem Show. We have missed this ‘grand old lady’. OFM is continuing to partner in the presentation and encourage the entire Central South Africa to visit and bring the family,” said Nick Efstathiou, CEO of the Central Media Group.

The entertainment programme is jam packed, with OFM the proud host of various music evenings, including Sing Country featuring Juanita du Plessis, Franja du Plessis and Ruan Josh, Francois van Coke, Snotkop and Spoegwolf.

OFM is a proud sponsor of the popular FMX Flight Night motorbike stunt shows. OFM listeners also stand a chance to win tickets and cash to make Bloem Show 2022 a memorable event.

Other attractions at the Show include Lollos performances for children, BMX and skateboarding demonstrations, a bodybuilding competition, a synthetic ice-skating rink, oval track racing and the first ever polo event at the Show.

Prinsloo thanked everyone for their support over the past two years. “We have done everything we could do to preserve Bloem Show for the community and we rely on everyone’s support this year. Don’t miss out, Bloem Show 2022 will offer the best entertainment, exhibitors, agricultural championships and an excellent marketing opportunity.”
