From the ACTEWAGL website:

There will be three days of jam-packed things to do, from the buzz of Sideshow Alley to the animal and craft pavilions and the adrenalin-filled Ford vs Holden, freestyle motorcycle, NSW Mounted Police and Federation Guard all having a presence over the three days.

The 2016 ActewAGL Royal Canberra Show will feature all the old favourites, including the art and craft demonstrations, Sideshow Alley, over 6,000 animals, lots of show bags along with ActewAGL Alley. ActewAGL Alley will once again be the must visit area at the show where you will be able to find free entertainment for the whole family including Milo the Clown, pig racing, Kids colouring and badge making activities, interactive sports zone, free face painting by the Gecko Gang plus everyone’s favourite the ActewAGL Farmyard Nursery.

On sale will be plush toy piglets with all proceeds going to the show charity partner Merrymead, and don’t forget to place your entry into our Grand Summer competition to win a fantastic prize!
