Come and join us at the Foster Show – it’s a great day out for the whole family!

The Foster & District Agricultural Show is a not-for-profit event which has played a vital role in the community life of our small South Gippsland town for over 100 years. This annual show is held in the Foster township which is nestled in the rolling hills of southern Victoria, Australia.

The fourth Saturday in February sees the beautiful Foster Showgrounds, normally home to local football, cricket, netball and basketball teams, filled with horses, cattle, sheep, working dogs, chooks, alpacas, pigeons, bands, local produce and craft exhibits – and, of course, hordes of spectators from the wider local district as well as from Melbourne and beyond, and overseas and interstate visitors to Wilson’s Promontory who are delighted to witness this authentic and iconic local event.

The last decade has sadly witnessed a decline in the number of local agricultural shows, but the Foster Show has gone from strength to strength during this period. A strong commitment to maintain the great traditions of the country show while striving to incorporate fresh but relevant ideas has resulted in a consistently well-attended and much-loved event.

The people of Foster have loved their Show for over a hundred years, and they would love to share it with you!
