The History of the Show
The first show held in Port Fairy was on 24 April 1854 on land on Bank Street. The Villiers and Heytesbury Agricultural Association established in 1853 held the show. This association later split and after several name changes, one part became the Port Fairy Agricultural, Pastoral, and Horticultural Society Incorporated, its current name.
The Agricultural and Pastoral Society of Australia Felix, was formed in New South Wales in the area now known as Victoria and held its one and only show in January 1840, in the Melbourne area. In the 1850’s about five agricultural and pastoral societies were established in Victoria.
