Albany Agricultural Show
Founded in 1889, this year is the 122
in the Society’s 127th
year history. This community based event takes place over two days each year in mid-November with the aim of promoting, encouraging and assisting the development of the resources of Albany and the Great Southern Region. The Society is a not-for-profit organisation and has been located at Centennial Oval since 1930. Show attendance in 2014 numbered 18,102 with 4,091 section competition entries.
The 2017 Show will return to Centennial Park Eastern Precinct after being temporarily located at the Albany Leisure and Aquatic Centre, while the new showgrounds were being redeveloped.
The history of the Albany Agricultural Society Incorporated has been captured in print by local Author and Historian Mr Les Johnson
