The Kelmscott Show is held at Rushton Park in the original Kelmscott town site on the banks of the Canning River and is still proudly run by local volunteers. The Kelmscott Agricultural Show is staged by the Kelmscott Agricultural Society for the community as a major annual event in Kelmscott. It is the second largest agricultural show in the metropolitan area. For many years it has been a 2 day event commencing Friday and finishing Saturday night with Fireworks on both nights. Many of the Society’s members and volunteers are descended from the original families in the district. These families have shown over the generations a commitment to being involved in their local community.
