Sydney’s Royal Easter Show 2021 receives $15.1 million in Federal Government support
This year’s Sydney Royal Easter Show is being supported with $15.1 million from the Federal Government under the Supporting Agricultural Shows and Field Days program to relieve cash flow pressures thereby ensuring this year’s event could go ahead.
Federal Minister for Agriculture, Drought and Emergency Management, David Littleproud said Agricultural shows and field days contribute over $1 billion to the economy each year and noted “Agricultural shows are an integral part of Australian culture and the most authentic and accessible display of Australian farming and regional life.
“They attract more than six million patrons, a lot of who are from regional and remote communities and are supported by more than 50,000 volunteers.
“Today I am visiting the Sydney Royal Easter Show, which had to cancel in 2020 due to COVID-19. After the financial turmoil caused by the cancellation it is great to see the event go ahead in 2021 with the support of the Australian Government.
Minister Littleproud added “The Sydney Royal Easter Show generates $250 million in economic activity each year, a lot of which flows to agricultural industries and regional and rural communities.
“I am thrilled to see the huge numbers of people coming through the gates this Easter weekend to support the event.
“The Sydney Royal Easter Show continues to bring the best of the bush to the city and showcase our incredible Australian produce and innovations.
“It survived the 1919 Spanish Flu pandemic, the Great Depression, World War Two, and has now survived Coronavirus to come back as big, bold and exciting as ever in 2021.”
Sydney's Royal Easter show was permitted to take place this year after being cancelled for the first time last year in over 100 years due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Sydney Showground was given approval by NSW Health for it to host up to 60,000 ticket holders on site each day of this year's Sydney Royal Easter Show running from 1st to 12th April.
The event was sold out each day from 1st to 5th April. Tickets for 6th to 12th April are still available.
