What's on

There's lots to see and do on the main arena and around the grounds - best of all, it's free!

This page is currently being updated - check back regularly to see what's been added.

Main Arena


Ford vs Holden

The ultimate challenge: two V8 utes, two professional drivers, two volunteers from the audience, one track. Who will reign supreme this year?


Showtime FMX

Our favourite freestyle motocross daredevils are back! Did you know that their first big performance was at the ActewAGL Royal Canberra Show 20 years ago?


Harness Racing


Did you know that the fastest harness racer on record could be booked for speeding on a residential street? ACT Harness Racing will be running races throughout the ActewAGL Royal Canberra Show - make sure you watch these amazing horses fly! (They're bringing the mini ones, too!)



No ActewAGL Royal Canberra Show is complete without fireworks! Our brand new displays will take place at 9:30PM on Friday and Saturday night. Don't miss it!
