Founded in 1889, this community based event takes place over two days each year on the second Saturday and preceding Friday of 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 attendances have consistently numbered in excess of 18,000 over the last few years. Over 4,000 section competition entries can also be viewed annually.
The 2017 Show returned 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 "Something to Show"
Copies are available for $12.00 from the Society office on 88 Cockburn Road.
The Society is now into its THIRD century; Jim Whittem - President 1999, Life Member comments ...
