You'll have more money for rides and showbags
The IGA Perth Royal Show attracts thousands through the gates each year for its rides, showbags and animals. This year it's on from Saturday September 27 to Saturday October 4.

So you have more money to spend on fairy floss and sideshow alley, here are some of the ways you can get into the event for FREE.

The IGA Perth Royal Show is on again

Be a kid
Once again, the State government has announced all kids aged 12 and under will get into this iconic Perth event for free when accompanied by an adult.

The Perth Royal Show Facebook page is a great place to start for prizes that include free entry (they also give away things like accommodation and tickets to family-friendly shows). Local radio stations also always give away tickets, usually family passes, in the lead up to the event.

Work at the Show
It makes sense that if you get yourself a gig at the IGA Perth Royal Show, you'll not only get free entry, you'll also earn money. It's up to you whether you spend that on showbags and the like. But at least after you knock off, you can take a walk to sideshow alley and be spun around and whizzed upside down (if that's your thing!).

Get in touch with Independent Events to see what gigs are available or, if you want to sell showbags, send an email to Remember to let them know what days and hours you are available.

Volunteers spots at the show include helping out at lost children points, being an education activity assistant and working on the Follow the Yellow Brick Road trail. Click here to see more.

You can also register your interest with the Royal Agricultural Society. Find the form you need here.
