The 2018 Royal Melbourne Show has officially ended after what was an unforgettable 11-days of food, fun and entertainment.
Conducted annually by The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV), the Royal Melbourne Show is the largest and most iconic annual community event that celebrates Victoria and excellence in agriculture.
Kicking off with a bang, the Royal Melbourne Show created an unforgettable opening weekend with a one-night-only 90-minute performance by rock legend, Jimmy Barnes adding additional, unbeatable worth to what was already a value-packed day.
This year’s Show saw the unbelievable value continue for patrons who experienced loads of new and exciting things, including more opportunities to get up close with animals, more delicious food offerings, particularly with new precinct, The Meadow and more entertainment with multiple daily performances by grand Australian illusionist Cosentino, and children’s favourite PJ Masks.
Guests had the opportunity to cuddle animals in the Animal Nursery, watch dogs compete for the Best in Show, be inspired by the strength of the woodchoppers, brave the rides in the Family Adventure Carnival, taste the best of what the Winning Tastes Pavilion had to offer, be stunned by the motocross and monster truck performance and enjoy the nightly fireworks display, among much more!
Visitors were entertained from morning to night, with a wide variety of all-inclusive, interactive and fun activities and attractions.
Speaking to the unforgettable offering of the 2018 Royal Melbourne Show, Chief Executive Officer of The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria, Paul Guerra, said there was a huge variety of unique and memorable experiences on offer for all visitors.
“We’ve listened to what patrons want and as a result we introduced a number of new experiences and initiatives into this year’s Show, including new food precincts, more opportunities to get up close to animals and livestock and more entertainment, from rides to live acts. It was very pleasing that the Victorian public responded so positively and enjoyed this year’s celebration”
“We look forward to another unforgettable Royal Melbourne Show in 2019,” Mr Guerra said.
The 2019 Royal Melbourne Show dates are Saturday 21 September – Tuesday 1 October
