The Vermont Farm Show grew out of the Old Vermont Dairymen’s Association and Maple Sugar Makers’ Association meeting which had been held for numerous years. In 1930 these meetings were held at the Memorial Auditorium which was only a few years old at the time. In 1932 Orlando Martin asked the Director of the Department of Agriculture if there was any possible way to put an educational exhibit and product competition in the basement of the Auditorium. That first exhibit was a huge success and so began the Vermont Farm Show.
During its first 80 years, the Show has undergone many changes which reflect the diversity of Vermont agriculture. The addition of exhibitors in the outdoor ice rink in 1984 was only one of many physical challenges as the Show grew larger and more diverse. Another significant change occurred in 2012 when we moved the location from Barre to the Champlain Valley Exposition grounds in Essex Junction.
