The Rutherglen Agricultural Show is in its 128th year and is one of a few surviving small Agricultural Shows still held in Victoria. We strive to retain the traditions of the country show as well as introducing new features in which the community can participate.. Horse events, animal and farm produce competitions and displays of home cooking, preserves, floral displays, art & crafts and photography are all part of our Show each year. The 2016 Show again has the Prime Lamb competition with around $1000 in prize money and trophies. The Men’s Cake Competition, Bush Poetry Competition, Ferret Races, Pet Parade and the Ladies Trailer Backing events are on again,. This year we have Dog Jumps, Tug of War and Nail Driving for Ladies.
