Royal Adelaide Show 2022

The Royal Adelaide Show will be opening the gates on September 3 for South Australia’s biggest reunion and tickets are on sale NOW!

It’s time to reunite with all your Show favourites, meet plenty of cute farmyard animals, chase that adrenaline rush on a ride, watch jaw-dropping stunts on the Main Arena, indulge in your favourite Show food and go all out on showbags!

After having to cancel the Show in 2020 and 2021, the much loved Royal Adelaide Show will finally be back in September showcasing the very best of South Australia.  As the longest-running event on SA’s calendar, it’s an experience not to be missed with so many animals to see, rides for the little ones and the thrill seekers, delicious carnival food, entertainment day and night and much, much more.

Families can once again look forward to old favourites like the exhibition pavilions, competitions, carnival attractions, showbags and nightly fireworks.  

Live music will also be back at the nine-day event for the first time in 20 years with the return of a dedicated live music program.
