Rutherglen Agricultural Show first commenced in the late 1800’s and continues to reflect the agricultural pursuits and interests of its community.
We provide a Show for all the family by retaining the traditions of the old agricultural country shows as well as introducing new features in which the community can participate. There are horse events, sheep, cattle, poultry, fleeces and farm produce competitions and an extensive competition for home cooking, preserves, floral displays, art & crafts and photography.
Special fun events include Ferret Races, Pet Parade, Dog Jumps, Tug of War, Trailer Backing for Ladies and Nail Driving for both ladies and guys.
There are displays of collectors vintage and veteran vehicles, motor bikes and steam engines and machinery, amusement rides from the Showmen’s Guild, animal nursery, clown, Services displays, Show Girl and Boy competitions and market stalls.
We continue to look for new ideas and events we can introduce to keep the Show as an annual event for the community at large.
If you are interested in being part of the presentation of the Show we welcome your assistance, ideas and enthusiasm.
