Ekka 2021 Royal Queensland Show
We all missed it last year… but it’s back!
Here’s something to look forward to this August… The Ekka Royal Queensland Show is back and all set to return to bigger and better than ever before after last year’s unfortunate cancellation.
The Ekka, held at the Brisbane Showgrounds, is Brisbane’s biggest annual event: a huge showcase of agriculture and entertainment that lasts over a week.
The family-friendly celebration, which pulls in over 400,000 visitors each year, is simply not to be missed, boasting live music, live competitions, fairground rides, hands-on activities, mouth-watering regional food and produce, exhibitors, stallholders, animal displays and explosive fireworks display like no other - plus more.
And this year, Royal Queensland Show is making a comeback with a larger-than-life program to top previous years.
What to expect, you ask? Just have a glance below.
