The Royal Geelong Show is an annual event held at the Geelong Showgrounds

The Royal Geelong Show is principally an agricultural event which focuses on the primary industries of Victoria, and rural lifestyle of many Victorians with events such as livestock judging, equestrian events, animal breeders competitions, produce competitions and wood chopping, although it also incorporates live entertainment, sporting events, food tasting, and fashion shows. A popular feature of the show is the sideshows which feature showrides, foodstalls, games of skill, and showbag stalls.

Unlike its capital-city counterpart, the Royal Melbourne Show, over recent years the Royal Geelong Show has maintained their Agricultural focus with many animal classes. Combined with he carnival atmosphere The Royal Geelong Show makes for a great day out.

The show runs for four days, Thursday through to Sunday, ending on the third Sunday in October. The Saturday is known as family day and usually involves many discounts and savings on showbags and rides from the other days.
