In 1897 the Brookfield Pullen Vale and Moggill Farmers’ Association was formed at a public meeting held at the Brookfield Hall. In 1905, the association formed a "Show Society" to promote the district and its produce. The first show (a one-day event) was held in 1906, and moved to a two-day format in 1910. The society held its last show in 1926.
In 1953, a public meeting decided to resume the shows with events held in 1954, 1955 and 1956. In 1956, a new Brookfield Show Society was created and has run the annual show ever since. In 1980, the Show expanded to a 3 day format (Friday, Saturday, Sunday). In 2006 the show attracted a record crowd of almost 22,000 visitors, with numbers averaging around 20,000.
The show includes sideshow and pony and camel rides, food stalls, live music and arena entertainment, including a rodeo and fireworks.
There are competitions in:
- stud cattle
- horses and
- guinea pigs.
