The Casterton P&A Show is an annual, family friendly event held on the second Saturday of November. The showgrounds are set on the banks of the Glenelg River under the majestic red gums at Island Park.
The Casterton Show is a traditional show featuring an indoor pavilion, trade exhibits, beef cattle, horses in action, sheep, wool, yard dog trials and poultry section. Our committee is always looking to improve the show and in recent years has introduced new additions such as the Bendigo Bank Kids Club offering a host of free all day entertainment.
Our aim is to host a traditional Agricultural Show which provides competitions and entertainment for families and all members of the public.

“From the ancient Greek for ‘sounded harmoniously’, the words ‘sinfonia’ and ‘symphony’ have been used for centuries.
Leonora Duarte, a Flemish composer who died before Bach was born, used it to describe her haunting works for viol ensemble. Johann Stamitz was a visionary, writing some of the first works that are recognisably modern symphonies. Haydn wrote over 100 symphonies building on Stamitz’s innovations.
Fast-forward to Britten’s youthfully delightful Simple Symphony, and finally to our commission of Australian composer Caerwen Martin, whose music reflecting on the sinfonias of Duarte brings us full circle.”
