The History of the Show
The first show held in Port Fairy was on 24 April 1854 on land on Bank Street. The Villiers and Heytesbury Agricultural Association established in 1853 held the show. This association later split and after several name changes, one part became the Port Fairy Agricultural, Pastoral, and Horticultural Society Incorporated, its current name.
The Agricultural and Pastoral Society of Australia Felix, was formed in New South Wales in the area now known as Victoria and held its one and only show in January 1840, in the Melbourne area. In the 1850’s about five agricultural and pastoral societies were established in Victoria.

It is with pleasure that I welcome you to the 2022 Port Fairy Annual Show. After two disappointing years of cancellations we are excited and happy to bring you an event this year which we believe has something for everyone. During the last two years the very committed members of the Committee have kept the grounds in pristine condition. They have also spent many hours upgrading and painting the pavilions to give them a fresh new look. All the time they have given and hard work is very much appreciated. The Show could not go on without our sponsors. I thank you all for your continued support even though you have been through difficult couple of years yourselves.
Finally, a big thank you to the dedicated Committee members, the Stewarts and volunteers who give their time to assist with the preparation leading up to Show Day. Without you the Show would not be the success it is. The Show is a family event and we look forward to seeing everyone enjoying a great day.
Presidents PFAP&H Soc Inc
Sunday 12 February 2023
The Port Fairy AP&H Society held its Annual General Meeting on Sunday 12th February. All positions that were vacant were dually filled, with congratulations from President Eveline on a productive 2022 and a great Show after 2 years absence due to Covid. Following the meeting, Isabel McLaren was honoured for her long support of the Port Fairy Show, by having the Kitchen in the Frank King Pavilion named after her. Isabel's support of the show began with her parents, who also supported the Show back in the day with them helping whenever needed. Isabel's catering skills have come to the fore, with her organising Sheepdog trials meals and Cycling Club catering on Showday. Her sponge cakes and rock cakes are legendary around the Showgrounds, and the Committee unanimously agreed there couldn't be a more worthy recipient of such an honour.
Well done Isabel!!!!!
