The Waroona Agricultural Society Inc. was founded in 1925 to coordinate an annual event known as “the Waroona Show”. This event brings the community together in a celebration of Arts, Culture, Competitions and Agriculture. In 2021, The Waroona Agricultural Society will celebrate its 90th Show.
It consists of an executive and general committee who are volunteers representing a wide cross section of the community and who work tirelessly all year to ensure the shows success. On show day the list of volunteers grows to over 50, not including those working for other community organisations.
The Waroona Show is the largest single event in the Shire, and is the single biggest fundraising event in the year for local community organisations. The Waroona Show is also the only Agricultural show in the Peel Region.
The show boasts many attractions each year including log chopping, side show alley, trade stalls, horse, cattle and poultry competitions, children’s entertainment, photography, cooking, sewing, horticulture, floral, arts and creative arts competitions, music, entertainment and the grand finale spectacular the “Alcoa fireworks display”.
