The Royal Agricultural Society (the RAS) has been active in the Western Australian community for over 180 years. Established to support the activities and emerging industries of the Swan River Colony, one of the first things the RAS did at Guildford in 1834, was to bring members of the community together at an event called the Fair and Cattle Show.


This evolved into the Perth Royal Show – the State’s most important community event. Today, the role of the RAS is as vital as ever. Close to one million people attend events at Claremont Showground which has been home to the RAS since 1904.


The Perth Royal Show attracts over 400,000 visitors from the city and the country every year. The Show is an iconic social and cultural event which showcases WA agriculture, small business and entertainment.


Each year the Show plays host to more than 15,000 entries across 40 competitions.
