There’s something for the whole family and many ways to get involved by entering classic show competitions like arts, baking, produce and woodchopping to novelty competitions like sack, egg and spoon, canoe races and more! Entries open in early January but start planning by checking out the hundreds of categories on the site. There’s live music, classic cars, frisbee golf, beekeeping, a silent disco and of course, the rodeo along with fantastic food and wine offerings.
The Kangaroo Valley Agricultural and Horticultural Association is well supported by the local community as well as its many long standing patrons, patronesses and life members. Memberships are taken annually in the lead up to the show.
If you are interested in becoming involved with the running of the Kangaroo Valley Show we would gladly welcome your interest. Please contact any of the KVA&HA Committee Members.
Kangaroo Valley Agricultural & Horticultural Association
The Kangaroo Valley Show is held annually in February. The Show is run and managed by the Kangaroo Valley Agricultural and Horticultural Association – a group of local volunteers dedicated to preserve the heritage and annual occurrence of the show.
The Association has a long history in Kangaroo Valley. It was created in 1881 and the first annual show of the Association took place in 1886 on a vacant piece of land on the bank of the river at the rear of what is now the Friendly Inn Hotel. In 1888 the Association sought to secure a permanent Showground and accepted the offer of ten acres of land opposite the General Cemetery by Alick Osborne (son of Henry Osborne). This area, now known as Osborne Park, with its picturesque Showground and facilities has hosted the Kangaroo Valley Show ever since.
