Ballarat Agricultural and Pastoral Society

The Ballarat Agricultural Show Society held its first activity on 10th July 1856. It was a ploughing match with twenty ploughmen taking part. Over 162 years later the Society is still celebrating its contribution to the community and agricultural activities.

We conduct a number of events which showcase the wide ranging agricultural nature of our community today. The Ballarat Showgrounds are also used to conduct a variety of activities by other groups. Facilities are available to hire.

The 2021 Victorian Sheep Show is back once again.

The event will continue to celebrate excellence in stud sheep breeds through the Victorian Sheep Show and see the return of the Alpaca Show, Working Dogs, AWI Fashion Parade, and the Presidents Breakfast.

This year’s event will also expand with the inclusion of a farming expo providing a platform for machinery, equipment and service displays, together with plenty of activities to entertain the family.  Local food and wine vendors will also be added to the program to create a real celebration of fibre, food, fashion, and farming.
