THE ROYAL HOBART SHOW: 2022 DETAILS TO COME
Celebrating 200 Years of Showing..
THE ANNUAL ROYAL HOBART SHOW
The Royal Hobart Show, which is hosted by the Royal Agricultural Society of Tasmania, is an event that celebrates all things Australian. From our country heritage and agriculture to the charms of our bustling city and from top level competition to the latest in entertainment, the show offers something for everyone.
For many years both city and country folk have been visiting the Show to soak up the sights, sounds and smells of rural Australia. The Show offers a unique hands-on learning experience for people of all age groups and free entertainment for the whole family to enjoy.
2021 ROYAL HOBART SHOW:
2021 certainly proved to be another challenging year for everybody and the Royal Agricultural Society of Tasmania was no exception. Covid played havoc with our planning and events largely due to overzealous government restrictions and the misguided belief that the public service knows best.
Despite this we delivered our wine and food competitions in modified formats and Covid safe events such as Cracker Night and the Royal Hobart Show. The Show opened against all odds with restrictive capacity limits and virtually no interstate competitors, vendors or carnival rides. Regardless, it proved to be a highly successful event in all ways except financial. A real credit to our staff and volunteers who overcame a myriad of obstacles to get the job done.
2022 looks set to continue to be a very dynamic environment but we are planning on running all our events at this stage, albeit in a modified format to comply with whatever restrictions are at play at the time. We will also commence the construction of the new Showground as soon as planning approval is obtained which is expected to be mid-year.
