Sydney Royal Easter Show

Save the date: 11-22 April 2025

The much-beloved Sydney Royal Easter Show is Australia’s largest, annual ticketed event known for bringing the country to the city, where Show-going fans get up close to cattle, sheep, baby chicks, piglets, miniature goats and even alpacas.

All the crowd-favourites return year after year with cattle judging, sheep shearing, chicken hatching, pig washing and the much-loved Best in Show Dogs.

Exhilarating evening entertainment gets the whole family cheering with rodeo riders, campdraft competitions, high-flying moto-X bikes, and so much more. The night-time fireworks thrill everyone from babies to baby-boomers.

And that’s just the beginning!

Thank you for coming to the 2024 Sydney Royal Easter Show

As you look forward to next year, consider entering a competition to really be part of the fun.

Even if you don’t raise champion bulls or sheep or goats, or
grow grain to enter with the Districts or keep bees for honey,
if you aren’t a baker of award-winning cakes,
if you can’t draw or paint for arts & crafts,
and if you lack a green thumb for flower & garden,

-remember there’s always the pumpkin bowling and scarecrow competition
