In 1981, the Melville and District Agri-Park Association was chartered as a non-profit Agricultural Society by a group of interested individuals from all walks of life drawn together by their interest in developing first-class agriculture grounds and facilities for future fairs, exhibitions, racing, shows, sales, etc. 

     In 1982 the Canada Week Celebrations took on a Western theme. Incorporated in the festivities were the very first Summer Fair Activities. This featured a first class Midway Amusements and Speed Horse Race Meet. Since then, this has become a yearly event with various activities and entertainment usually occurring during a weekend in the month of June. This years festivities begin on Friday, June 20, 2003 and end in the later part of the day on Sunday, June 22, 2003. 

     The Agri-Park Association is a registered charitable organization, and was incorporated in June of 1988. The Agri-Park grounds are located on a quarter section of land due east of the Melville Regional Park and adjacent to #10 Highway, northeast of the City of Melville, along Agri-Park Road between Highways #10 and #15. 

  In 2002 two local families donated the life-size silhouettes located at the west end of the Agripark hall. 
  Deb and Rick Ward donated the silhouette of a cowboy leaning against a pole in memory or the late Dick Ward. 
   The bucking horse with rider is a living tribute to Jack Piller; his wife, Cary Piller, gave it to the Agri-Park in honor of Jack's 85th Birthday in September 2002. Jack was a charter member of the Melville & District Agri-Park & has been a dedicated supporter every year.
