The annual Millicent Show is organised by a General Committee comprising elected Office Bearers and Members.
The Society is grateful for the tremendous support from local individuals, service groups, businesses and the Wattle Range Council.Thanks to Sue Vanderheul for her ongoing work establishing the gardens, also the support we have received with the external painting and improved access. This support has been evident in the establishment of gardens and seating, external painting and improved access. In April 2018, Stage 1 of a long-term plan to repair, restore and refurbish some of our older buildings was commenced, with thanks to our major sponsor, Infigen Energy Lake Bonney Wind Farm, with expectations of completion to coincide with the 150 th anniversary celebrations in 2021. The Society would also like to acknowledge the support given by the local Millicent Lions Club.

Since its inception in 1876, the Millicent Show has been a drawcard for locals and visitors from far and wide, and it was the first three-day Show outside of Adelaide, and we are one of the few Societies who own our own grounds.
Where once farmers travelled for hours by horse and cart, and then by train, we now attract competitors and exhibitors from all over Australia, including some who ‘fly-in, and fly-out’ from our adjacent airstrip.
Many of the traditional categories remain, spanning three centuries; some have been adapted to reflect modern-day farming methods, and new categories added to reflect technological advances and changing interests in the community.
Entertainment, side-shows and food also form a large part of attractions, and the Friday evening fireworks display continues to win awards.
