The popular Gin Gin Show has become the latest country show to fall victim to coronavirus, but organisers are still hopeful of holding an event of some kind.

They say the decision to cancel the 2021 has been made with a heavy heart, following advice from Queensland Health on COVID-safe requirements.

Gin Gin Show Society President Kerryn Flanders says the committee knows how important the show is to the community, and they're working to see if they can still hold something small to bring people together.

"The show has been a big part of our lives and it's something we have not taken on lightly at all - it's been quite trying, I've spent many nights not sleeping thinking 'can we?'," Ms Flanders says.

"We still aren't ruling out some sort of event to hold at our grounds through the year, we're still working forward, we still want people to realise that Gin Gin Show is still here."

The Gin Gin Show Society is focusing its efforts on recruiting more volunteers to help organise future shows.

Ms Flanders says the show is organised by people who are passionate about the community.

"If anyone wants go get involved with membership, you can find us at Gin Gin Show on our Facebook or our website."
