History

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.
