The 2019 Collie Show will celebrate 60 years of the iconic event as it kicks off at 9am this Saturday.

The annual show will celebrate the year of the bee and recognise the importance of the endangered insects to the agricultural sector.

Collie Agricultural Society president Robert Ingram said the theme highlighted how hard it was the image a future without bees.

"So important are they to our food production, that our very existence depends on them," he said.

"So put your thinking caps on and enter one of the many classes - you are bound to find one that suits your creative talents (at the show)."

The show will begin a 8am at the Wallsend Street showgrounds and will end with a fireworks show at 8:30pm.

The days events will include how jumping events, log chopping, live music, guest star Paul West as well as animals and side show alley entertainments for all ages.
