The Horsham Ag Society welcomes new members who are keen to volunteer their time to assist with the organisation of the annual Horsham Agricultural Show which is held in Sept/Oct (dates change each year). In addition to the Show, society members can help raise money through various fundraising activities held at the Showgrounds and off site. Our committee members are acknowledged as councillors in a formal sense.
The office of the Horsham Ag Society is located in Russell Hall at 22 McBryde Street entrance and our office hours vary but it is generally manned Tuesdays & Wednesdays from 10am – 5pm but we recommend you phone first!
We hire out assorted and curious equipment including vintage trestles, vintage pews/seats, portable sheep yards and more.
The vintage stables and the rustic walls of some of the buildings provide a unique backdrop for wedding photos as does the Wimmera River. A small fee is requested to access these areas to support maintenance costs.
The grounds are hired out for swap meets, expos, outdoor movies, car boot sales and more. Basic camping facilities are available for people travelling through, particularly with large animals, mostly horses.
The Showgrounds is maintained by volunteers and limited staff. A strong relationship between the St Brigid’s College and the Society enables us to support secondary college Year 11 and 12 students by providing assistance with their community projects and opportunities for work experience.
