The Royal Queensland Show (Ekka) has been bringing the country and city together since 1876, to celebrate and champion agriculture and the critical role it plays in our everyday lives. This year more than 400,000 people will come together to celebrate the 140th Ekka – a showcase of the best of the best.
This year Ekka is set for more fun than ever!
The Royal Queensland Show (Ekka) is Queensland’s largest annual event. Held over ten full days (11-20 August 2017), Ekka showcases life and achievements in the Sunshine State, bringing visitors from across Queensland and Australia to the heart of Brisbane.
This year marks the 140th show, and more than 400,000 people are expected to come together to celebrate Queensland’s most loved annual event.
The Ekka showcases the best of Queensland with animal competitions, award-winning food and wine, live entertainment, carnival fun, family shopping, educational activities and much more.
More than 70 per cent of the showgrounds are dedicated to free entertainment and activities including the spectacular night show Ekka NITES, 10,000 animals on show and performances by a number of family favourites like Bananas in Pyjamas Live, The Farm Yard Friends stage show and the Feathered Friends bird spectacular.
If you want the full run-down, including information on the rides, showbags, musical entertainment and ticketing information, head on over to the EKKA website and take a scroll.
You could WIN passes with your pictures
Ekka – the People’s Show – is celebrating a remarkable milestone, and they need your help to commemorate its 140th anniversary by sharing your historical photos.
Ekka want to hear your stories through historical photographs – the childhood memories of family trips to Ekka, the pocket money painstakingly saved to spend on the wonders of Sideshow Alley, and your family traditions, passed down through generations.
Every photo uploaded onto their website before the end of June will also go in a draw to win an Ekka Family Pass. If you have an ‘Ekka Memory’ you’d like to share, then click HERE.
