After a one year hiatus the "Ag Show" as it
is fondly known, is back in full force!
"The Agricultural Exhibition currently consists of school exhibitions,
floral shows, animal exhibits, and equestrian programs, all related to
Bermuda’s agricultural heritage. "
The Agricultural Exhibition was
first held in the Botanical Gardens in 1922, and continues to be
held there to this day, however the first Agricultural
Exhibition was in fact held in 1843! Over the years the
Agricultural Exhibition has seen many changes, yet it continues to
be one of the most important events on Bermuda’s cultural calendar.
Today the Bermuda Agricultural
Exhibition is an icon of Bermuda tradition. This event has a mandate
to provide an educational and fun environment to embrace its
agricultural heritage by providing a venue for local residents to
display livestock, fruits, vegetable, baked goods, woodcraft,
floriculture and educational displays.
The Agricultural Exhibition is
now a public-private initiative. Visit

The Garden Club of Bermuda's
The Garden Club debuted their 'Lemon Stand'
at the Annual Agricultural Exhibition in April 2012. The Garden
Club has had a long association with 'The Ag Show' and are fully
supportive of the event with many members giving of their time to
support the show. The Lemon Stand proved to be a great success and
provided many a thirsty and hungry show-goer with
delicious home-made lemonade, baked goods and more, all donated by
Garden Club members. Many gallons of lemonade were sold, and all
profits went to the Scholarship Fund and Community Projects. The Lemon Stand, by
popular demand, was back for the 2013 Ag Show.
