The 2020 Royal Melbourne Show Has Been CANCELLED, Thanks Coronavirus!
WE ACTUALLY CAN'T BELIEVE IT
Last night, we received the news headline we knew might happen, but weren’t ready for…
Due to the continuing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV) has made the decision to cancel the 2020 Royal Melbourne Show in the best interests of public health.
The Royal Melbourne Show has only been called off on two occasions in its 165-year history. First, when Melbourne Showgrounds was requisitioned for the war effort in 1915 and again in WWII between 1940-1945.
Attracting around half a million visitors over 11 days each year, the Royal Melbourne Show is Victoria’s largest and most iconic annual community event contributing more than $244 million in value to the State of Victoria’s economy annually. Do you have any great memories from the shows in the past? We'd love to see them! Just send it to us in a message on Facebook here!
