Closing Date & Time

The Australian Government is inviting agricultural show societies and field day organisers to apply for a grant to reimburse them for costs they incurred when they had to cancel their scheduled show or agricultural field day in 2020 because of COVID-19.

Cash flow support provided through the program will help to ensure the sustainability of agricultural show societies and the agricultural shows they conduct. It will also support the agricultural field day organisers and the agricultural field days they conduct.

Agricultural shows and field day events are the most authentic and accessible displays of Australian farming and regional life. They help to bring:

  • important technology and innovation to agricultural producers
  • showcase Australia’s diverse agricultural produce and stock
  • underpin a range of activities that support commercial agricultural enterprise and investment opportunities.

Agricultural shows and field days also deliver significant social and economic benefits to the communities in which they are held.

The Community Grants Hub administers the program according to the Commonwealth Grants Rules and Guidelines 2017 (CGRGs).
