August 2020 Announcement: The Whittlesea Agricultural Society Inc. has, with much consideration, decided to cancel the 2020 Annual Whittlesea Show. The continuing restrictions associated with COVID-19, especially the management of social-distancing and the possible risk to public health during large events were the major factors for this decision. The uncertainty of knowing when these restrictions would be lifted has made it very difficult to forward plan for our annual Show.

We take this opportunity to thank all those involved in the show including our many supporters, volunteers, exhibitors, sponsors, local community groups, stall holders, entertainers etc. We know that for some of these groups the Whittlesea Show provides a major contribution to their fundraising and annual income and we are saddened that we are unable to assist by providing an event this year.

We look forward to providing our 161st Whittlesea Show on the 6th & 7th of November in 2021.

Become a part of the story about generations of history, since 1859.

The Whittlesea Agricultural Society is considered one of the oldest and continuous Agricultural Societies in Victoria. The Society is responsible for the Famous “Whittlesea Show” which has been crowned “Victoria’s Premier Regional Agricultural Show”. This year the Society celebrates its 161st year. The Whittlesea Agricultural Society is a dedicated band of volunteers who work throughout the year to put on this inaugural Show.
The Whittlesea Show began as a fair in 1859 and has grown to become one of the best Shows in Victoria and is a signature event in the Melbourne Community Calendar with large crowds flocking to the Show each year. The Whittlesea Show brings the best of country life and enables people of all ages to share and recognise the history and heritage of the Whittlesea Farming Community and the Whittlesea Agricultural Society.
The Agricultural Society holds the annual Show on the first full weekend in November each year. A very active committee is behind this successful event which by reputation conducts the largest two day Agricultural Show in Victoria. We believe our show is successful because we concentrate on an agricultural based family show, our reputation is widespread and many of our competitors and visitors travel from all areas of Victoria and often from Interstate to attend or participate.
