The Sydney Royal Easter Show is Australia's largest annual ticketed event when we come together to celebrate the vital role that agriculture plays in the health and wealth of our nation and applaud the highest achievers in agricultural excellence. Non-stop competitions, a delicious variety of Show food to enjoy and a thrilling entertainment program with a spectacular fireworks finale every night are just some of the highlights of this 12-day event. The Sydney Royal Easter Show Event Volunteers are one of the Show's most valuable assets, and we truly appreciate your support.
