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.
