Milton Show Society

We’re celebrating our 150th in 2019

Milton Show is an annual show and exhibition hosted by Milton Show Society Inc.

Children and young adults are important participants in our annual show. They are also some of our most discerning visitors. Raising awareness of the contribution of agriculture and horticulture to our community is a significant goal of the event.

Milton Show will be 150 years old in 2019.
