The Chapman Valley Agricultural Show

The Chapman Valley Show is proudly run by the Chapman Valley Agricultural Society Inc. (CVAS) a not-for-profit community organisation.
The Show is an annual public event showcasing the agriculture, livestock and produce of the Valley’s vibrant community.
Featuring the extensive Exhibition Hall, Agriculture Pavilions and Free Entertainment Zone for the Kids. The ‘Valley Shears’ Shearing Competition, Vintage Tractor Pull, Equestrian and Showjumping events and the Sideshow Alley. Various competitions, Food Stalls plus dozens of Vendors displaying their products and many goods and services.
The CVAS welcomes new members and volunteers to assist with pre-planning, organising and assisting the committee on show day.
Our show is held in the wide open space of the Nanson Showgrounds in natural surrounds giving easy access across a single level location. The Chapman Valley show is the closest agricultural show to Geraldton and just 26kms or 20mins from the Chapman Valley Road/NWCH roundabout.

There is nowhere else where students have such a great opportunity to showcase what regional schooling is all about. There is a lot of work involved but at the end of the day this is a day for all our children who live in rural areas.
12 months of hard work from a dedicated group of volunteer committee members and many other members of the Chapman Valley community help to make our annual Show “The Best in the Midwest”.
