Event: -
A country show in the city
The Wanneroo Show is an icon of a show that has been running successfully for many years - as long as I can remember, and I believe it has been going for more than 100 years now!

It is a real treasure in that there is so much to entertain, see and do at this agricultural show and it is in the heart of the Perth metro area. This is like a real country show, only it is in the city!

The Wanneroo Show is always an exciting event with an action-packed program. There will be Sideshow Alley and a mainstage that will be interesting to watch the whole day! There will be many showbags to choose from, so if you missed out on our Royal Show this year, make sure you get your showbags here!

The showbags on offer this year are:
Thomas the Tank
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Sesame Street
Sesame Street Elmo
Secret Life of Pets
Peppa Pig
George Pig

Discovery Kids
Blaze Monster Trucks
Best Friends Forever
Ben and Holly
Adventure Time
Assassins Creed
Animal Planet

There will be the usual rides, names of which have not yet been released at the time of writing this article, but they will be fun!
