The Royal Queensland Show (Ekka) is Queensland’s largest and most loved annual event, attracting on average 400,000 people.
Run by the RNA for 10 days in August and staged at its original birthplace, the Brisbane Showgrounds, the Ekka brings the country and city together for a true celebration of agriculture.
The Ekka showcases the best of Queensland, attracting more than 21,000 competition entries from woodchop to giant vegetables, 10,000 animals from beef cattle to cats and dogs, world-class live entertainment, award-winning food and wine, carnival rides and showbags, family shopping, educational activities and much more.
The iconic show has been running since 1876 and is full of traditions, a unique atmosphere and childhood memories which have been passed down through generations of families.
From hair-raising stunts and slide-splitting stage shows to live music and the true Ekka traditions, you’ll never be short of a laugh or gasp at Ekka.
The daytime entertainment is fun for the whole family – see cute and cuddly animals, watch woodchoppers battle it out, be wowed by the lunchtime show, learn about agriculture, toe-tap to talented singers and much more!
