It is over one hundred years since the first Show but with years missed during the two World Wars and last year’s COVID- 19 outbreak, 2021 was actually the one hundredth event. Show goers walked within the newly built multipurpose Exhibition Hall adjoining the Recreation Centre that was officially opened on the day. The multipurpose building was built with $315,787 Federal Government grant from the Regional AgShow Development Grants program to support regional shows throughout Australia. The structure is a welcome additional to the sports and recreational complex that allows the exhibitions and many other activities during the show day to now be completely held under cover. An impressive structure with a mural wall representing Kellerberrin and district area on one side.

The multipurpose building provided adequate area to display all the usual produce by proud locals from kitchens, gardens and farms plus a historical display of the Kellerberrin Shire and the agricultural society. A fitting exhibition. Local children, exhibitions and competition were well represented. Outside the day’s events included sheep shearing, working dog demonstrations, equestrian events and a scarecrow competition.

There were plenty of opportunities for reunions and the opening address allowed a past president to speak on the Kellerberrin Agricultural Society’s history. The day was concluded with an amazing fireworks display.  It was fitting event for a much loved regional show.

Congratulations to the President Alli Steber and the Kellerberrin Agricultural Society committee on reaching a 100th show.
