The show will not go on in Henty, with a horror 2020 causing the town to cancel this year's event.
The cancellation of February's event comes as just the second time in the show's 116-year history, and show society secretary Kerry Small said it was "disappointing".
Council's redevelopment of the Henty Sportsground meant neither the football nor the show could be hosted on the ground until after March, according to Mrs Small.
Without being able to run the horse events, the show wouldn't be the same.
However the final death knell was the fear COVID-19 would spread to the small town.
"It's disappointing because we've only missed one in the whole time the show has been running, in the war years.
"We're very sorry we've called it off but it's out of our hands."
Mrs Small called for the community to show their support in 2022 when the annual event returns.
