Agricultural shows and field days bring rural and urban communities together to showcase Australia's finest food and fibre. These events play a crucial role in supporting on-farm innovation and efficiencies within agricultural industries.
Agricultural shows and field days:
- contribute more than $1 billion to the economy annually
- attract more than 6 million patrons
- are supported by more than 50,000 volunteers.
Government funding of $81.2 million has been provided since 2019 to support the growth and long-term sustainability of these important events through a range of targeted grants.
Most of the grants have now closed and you can find out more about how these grants were awarded by clicking on the links below:
