The IGA Perth Royal Show 2017

This event has passed!

The IGA Perth Royal Show is the highlight of the spring school holidays kicking off on Saturday September 23 and concluding on Saturday 30 September 2017.

The IGA Perth Royal Show is Perth’s largest community event attracting more than 400,000 visitors from the city and country each year. With a rich history spanning 170 years, the Show is an iconic social and cultural event which showcases WA agriculture, small business and entertainment.

There is almost $1 million of free Show entertainment including the highly anticipated IGA Fireworks Spectacular every night at 8pm. All the major attractions are free. The IGA Perth Royal Show has 400 entertainers, 300 performances and nearly 100 hours of entertainment every day. With free attractions filled with animals, food and agricultural experiences, the Show is an entertaining and fun family day out. 

RASWA is passionate about educating people of all ages about agriculture and our interactive learning exhibits tell the story of agriculture to hundreds of thousands of urban West Australians.
