Roll up! Roll up! For fun sights, rides, adorable animals, showbags and excitement galore. It’s that time again where children and adults alike gather to attend the Royal Canberra Canberra Show (23-25 February). This year’s ACTewAGL Royal Canberra Show will see a number of new entertainment elements alongside the classics. A number of new entertainment will enliven the show including Queensland’s The Crackup Sisters bringing their mix of acrobatics, comedy and whip-cracking.
The Lost Trades exhibition will feature nine artisans demonstrating rare and unusual skills and trades. The Peppa Pig Show will also run three times on the Saturday at 10 am, 12PM and 2PM, in ActewAGL Alley.
The main arena will once again host a number of high octane events such as the Isuzu Team D-MAX demonstrations and the monster trucks. Horse competitions and working dog demonstrations will also take to the main arena over the weekend.
With the light rail roadworks taking place along Flemington Road outside EPIC, it is advised that visitors pre-purchase their tickets (until midnight 22 February), entitling them to free Action bus travel to and from the show plus a 10% discount on entry fees. There are taxi, uber and public drop-off and pick-up points either side of the grounds, in Randwick Road and Stirling Avenue. Those who prefer to drive will still be able to access parking via Wells Station Road and Randwick Road. The AcetwAGL Royal Canberra Show will take place at EPIC from 23 to Sunday 25 February.
