Showtime in the City

Man and child with balloons

***PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT WILL NOW ONLY RUN ON FRIDAY 10 FEBRUARY DUE TO PREDICTED EXTREME TEMPERATURES ON SATURDAY*****

Popcorn! Showbags! Farm animals! There'll be lots to see and do on 10 February when Showtime in the City takes over Petrie Plaza. 

As a preview to the ActewAGL Royal Canberra Show, a patting paddock, showbags, clowns and sideshow alley will light up the city between 4.30 pm and 9.30 pm on Friday 10 Feb.

This free event showcases the family-fun atmosphere away from the showground in one of Canberra’s most accessible spaces, as part of the Government’s commitment to bring our city to life through the City Action Plan.

Tickets to the ActewAGL Royal Canberra Show will be available for sale at a ticket booth both days.

Showtime in the City is an initiative supported by the ACT Government and the City Action Plan, the Royal National Capital Agricultural Society and ActewAGL.
