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 http://www.theagshowbda.com/

The Garden Club of Bermuda's
Lemon Stand
              
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.
