dc.description.abstract Agricultural shows are community based festivals that represent a majority of festivals staged in rural destinations. These shows are predominantly volunteer managed festivals which are finding it difficult to survive in an increasingly competitive and challenging environment. However little is understood about the volunteer managers of these festivals in terms of their motivation, skills and effectiveness in managing these festivals. To address these issues this paper has three aims. First it will present a review of the literature on volunteer managed festivals. Second the paper presents preliminary findings from a study conducted during 2005/2006 on rural agricultural shows. Third this paper discusses the implications for the management of future rural agricultural shows.
