It’s not just the free rides at this agricultural show that sets it apart – though they are popular.
Perenjori Agricultural Show is known to bring a lot to the table, and this year was no exception.
To celebrate its 75th birthday, the Perenjori District Agricultural Society (local committee) worked to bring an even bigger and better show to the region.
Free rides, fire works, a great band, good food, fun competitions and amazing weather were only a few of the highlights of the day.
Working to help ‘bridge the gap’ between city and country WA, the Society’s activities aimed to assist in the development of Western Australian resources – including agricultural, horticultural, viticulture, industrial, rural, technological, commercial and mineral resources.
Recently, hundreds of individuals and local businesses across WA converged on Stan Cannon Sporting Complex to participate in the 75th Perenjori Agricultural Show.
The show hosted by the local Perenjori Agricultural Society through financial support from local businesses including NACC, featured hundreds of activities such as business exhibition marquees, machineries, sports and free entertainment facilities for children.
The NACC team participated in this year’s show and had an excellent opportunity to interact with the community, and showcase what we can offer to people in the region.
NACC Regional Landcare Facilitator Stanley Yokwe said: “It was encouraging to see new people from the region joining NACC.”
“We are a community-based organisation with a mandate to support people to support the natural environment, so it’s great that people get on board.
“The Agricultural shows are an excellent opportunity for sharing ideas and networking, as well as celebrating what the region has achieved, and showcasing some of the great work happening in our community.
“A lot of freebies including native plants were given away to people who visited the NACC stand too, and over eight individuals across the region signed up for NACC membership.”
