2021 Agricultural Show cancelled
To all our supporters:
On Wednesday at our AGM we made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Rutherglen Agricultural Show.
This was not a decision made lightly, but in light of the constantly changing border restrictions and uncertainty surrounding Covid, in the interests of public safety, we decided this was the best option.
Stay safe everyone, and we look forward to a great show in 2022!!
Corowa Free Press press release – regarding the 2021 Agricultural Show
In Rutherglen, the committee met last week to discuss the matter and conceded it was “too big a risk” to proceed with the much-loved event.
Rutherglen Agricultural Society President Greg Lumby said the decision was not made lightly but was in the best interests of the community.
“We are really disappointed to be in this position for the second year in a row,” Mr Lumby told The Free Press.
“It is especially tough for the local schools and farming community who have been eagerly awaiting this year’s show.
“Thankfully the Rutherglen Wine Show will still go ahead.
“We thank the community of Rutherglen for their continued support and look forward to bigger and better things in 2022.”

The Rutherglen Agricultural Show
The Rutherglen Agricultural Show was established in 1880 and continues to reflect the agricultural pursuits and interests of its community.
By retaining the traditions of the old agricultural country shows, as well as introducing new features, we provide a show for all the family.
With entertainment ranging from ferret races, animal nursery, dog jumps, side shows, a ladies trailer backing competition and novelty fun events to horse events, poultry, sheep, cattle and produce, and an impressive display of pavilion exhibits, you’re sure to find something to entertain all the family at the Rutherglen Agricultural Show.
