Queensland Agricultural Show
The Ekka is the annual agricultural show of Queensland, Australia. Its formal title is the Royal Queensland Show and is held at the Brisbane Exhibition Ground. It was originally called the Brisbane Exhibition, however it is commonly called the Ekka, which is a shortening of the word exhibition. It is run by The Royal National Agricultural and Industrial Association of Queensland.
The Ekka is Queensland largest annual event with recent shows drawing more than 400,000 visitors. It aims to showcase Queensland culture, produce, resources and initiatives. This is done through a range of competitions, award ceremonies, exhibits, educational displays, animal and performances. There is a sideshow alley, showbag pavilion, numerous food and beverage outlets and a range of entertainment including nightly fireworks displays. It typically starts on a Thursday in August and continues for 10 days to close on a Saturday.
The significance of the first exhibition held in 1876 was described by locals as the most important event since Queensland's separation from New South Wales in 1859.
