A great way to spend a day, this event needs to be experienced, with everything for the farm and the home from machinery to jewellery.
Agfest, Tasmania’s premier agricultural event, has the second highest attendance of all agricultural field days in Australia.
Agfest has grown from a small field day at a racetrack with 100 exhibitors in May 1983 to become one of the State’s most popular multi-million dollar exhibitions with almost 80,000 patrons passing through the gates over the three days.
Agfest features over 700 exhibitors and has something for everyone. Attractions include agricultural machinery, banking and finance, machinery, hardware and small equipment, leisure, automotive, clothing and home wares, food, horticulture and viticulture and livestock.
There are working displays of Tasmania’s pioneering agricultural industry including working blacksmiths, draught horse displays and free rides, a selection of vintage machinery from the wool and timber industries, and steam engines and tractors.
