One of the signature events held at Lardner Park is Farm World, recognised as one of Victoria’s premier regional agricultural shows, celebrating 52 years of tradition at Lardner Park in 2019. This event is testament to Lardner Park’s deep ties with the agricultural community and highlights the importance of Victoria’s $13 billion food and fibre industry.

Demonstrating the venue’s versatility and its appeal to the creative sector, the Australian Ballet will bring its popular free and annual Ballet Under the Stars to regional Victoria for the very first time, to be staged at Lardner Park in October this year.
