A little bit of the country will be coming to the city for this year's Royal National Association (RNA) Royal Queensland Show or locally known as the "Ekka" returns to Brisbane from 6 to 14 August 2022.

The RNA Show or the Ekka/Exhibition is a long time favourite fair showcasing the State's best produce, livestock and experiences, focusing on Queensland's rural producers.

This year's show will return after a two-year absence due to the COVID pandemic and continue the tradition with an assortment of fun things to see and do focused around:

  • animals

  • agriculture

  • arts craft cookery fashion

  • education

  • entertainment

  • flower and garden

  • Rides, sample bags and sideshow alley

    Who doesn't love strawberry sundaes on a crispy cone, layers of mouth-watering ice cream and a dollop of cream on top, the tomato sauce layered dagwood dogs, the salt topped hot chips and the steak burgers. Then there are the showbags with treat-filled goodies and sideshow alley for the exhilarating rides.

    But of course, who could resist the chance to visit the animal nursery and see and pat the baby animals or drop by the wood chop arena to see the strength and tenacity of the axe-wielding sportsmen. One of my favourite visits is to stop by to see the show dog competitions to see the very best of an assortment of breeds.

    Arts, craft, and cookery competitions and displays are also back including cake decorating, cookery, creative art and craft, painting and drawing, photography and sculpture.

    Prices to the Ekka range from $21-$84 with some early bird deals available.

    EKKA Gala
    The show will feature a special EKKA Gala on 6 August 2022 to get the massive week-long party and fun started. To purchase your tickets and find additional information head to this link and head to the Brisbane Showground and Exhibition Centre at 600 Gregory Terrace Bowen Hills.

    Don't miss out on welcoming back The Ekka and creating new memories at a Brisbane classic event.
