About the Show

The Royal National Capital Agricultural Society (RNCAS) has promoted agricultural shows in the ACT and surrounding regions for approximately 90 years.

The Royal Canberra Show, Canberra’s largest all ages event, is staged annually by the Royal National Capital Agricultural Society. While having agriculture at its core, the Show has broadened over the years to reflect more entertainment, educational features and exhibitions, ensuring that there is a vibrant mix of “city meeting country” and “country meeting city”.

Entries for the various livestock and agricultural competitions continue to increase each year, reflecting the significant role the Show plays in the development of the skills and excellence of those who live in the surrounding region. It also reflects the role that the Royal Canberra Show plays in attracting visitors from all over Australia for the event. The Royal Canberra Show can trace its origins back to 1908 when the Ginninderra Farmers’ Union organised a show at Ginninderra. It was regarded as an unqualified success and in the ensuing years went on to become the most successful event of its type in the district.
