A bit about the Alexandra P&A Association
The Alexandra Pastoral & Agricultural Association Inc has been an integral part of the community of Alexandra for over a century. The committee is predominantly comprised of volunteers residing in Alexandra and surrounds. Each year we work towards building a bigger and better Annual Spring Show with each member of the committee dedicated to a particular aspect of show day organisation. We are ever welcoming of new ideas for the show so if you are enthusiastic to contribute to this great local event, it would be great to hear from you.
The Alexandra Annual Spring Show
Always held on the 2nd Saturday in November, the Alexandra Annual Spring show has something for everyone. Competitions on show day aim to show off the best local (and surrounding) talent - horses, commercial cattle, poultry, working dog trials, arts, craft, cooking and photography. Winners of certain competitions can go on to compete at regional and state level held at the Royal Melbourne Show every year. If competing isnt for you, maybe games and rides in side show alley will fit your bill, or make the most of the free displays held on the day by the Alexandra Dog Obedience Club, shearing demonstrations and trade stalls. The show is a great family day and has plenty to offer to young kids including an animal farm, puppetry entertainment and if you bring your pet on the day feel free to enter the pet parade. If you, or someone you know is young and enthusiastic about their local community/ag show maybe standing for the position of Rural Ambassador or Junior Ambassador may be for you. Show schedules and various entry forms can be found around town in the weeks leading up to the show or on the resources page of this website. If you have any questions about the show, we would love to hear from you.
