Agfest is an agricultural and machinery field day event that has been operating for 34 years over three days during the month of May. It is a Tasmanian success story that injects millions of dollars into our local economy annually. Agfest today is recognised throughout Australia and is recognised in the top three field day events.

Agfest is organised and managed by Rural Youth Tasmania, a non-profit organisation whose members are aged between 15 and 30 years of age. The Agfest Committee is a volunteer role of approximately 60 Rural Youth members. Being on the Agfest organising committee is a powerful training tool that provides diverse skills and experiences. It is a unique training ground with opportunity for swift personal growth and extensive leadership training for those involved.

Agfest continues to grow each year, the 2016 Agfest attracting over 60,000 patrons and 700 exhibitors.
