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.
