The Lilydale show is located at the entrance to the Yarra Valley at the Lilydale Recreation Reserve presented by the Lilydale Agricultural & Horticultural Show Society.
Agricultural & Horticultural Shows
Are a traditional way to demonstrate the rural way of life through friendly competitions involving farm animals, art/crafts and horticulture. They continue to focus on Agriculture, rural lifestyles and family fun. There are School displays with Emergency Services demonstrations, blacksmithing, vintage farm machinery, dog events and a children's interactive animal farm with a variety of furry & feathered friends. All this combined with a fairground atmosphere of show rides, showbags, family entertainment, fireworks and fun activities to provide to the community an enjoyable family day out.
Lilydale Show Weekend
The Lilydale Agricultural and Horticultural Society holds its Agricultural and Horticultural Show annually on the 3rd Saturday and Sunday in November.
Location of the Lilydale Show
Lilydale is situated at the entrance to the Yarra Valley and is considered to be the ideal location for an A&H show being halfway between town and country. Whilst the majority of people attending the Show come from Lilydale, the Yarra Valley Region and surrounding districts, tourists visit from all over. The Lilydale Show is held in the heart of Lilydale with the main entrance located on the Maroondah Highway and is just 45km from Melbourne and adjacent to the Lilydale railway station for easy rail access.
Lilydale A & H Society
The Society is a voluntary-based, non-profit organisation formed in 1953. Since then the Lilydale Show Society has successfully presented an Agricultural and Horticultural Show annually for the enjoyment of all the community.
