The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV) would like to thank everyone who attended and supported the 2013 Royal Melbourne Show.
The Royal Melbourne Show is Victoria’s largest annual community event that that provides the RASV with a unique and valuable platform to promote and celebrate excellence in Victorian agriculture.
Open for an additional day this year, the 2013 Royal Melbourne Show’s exciting program of blue ribbon all-stars, agricultural discovery, thrilling attractions and epicurean wonders attracted strong crowds across the 12-day event.
Over 500,000 visited the Royal Melbourne Show between 21 September and 2 October 2013 and a new daily attendance record was set with over 80,000 people flocking through the gates on Sunday, 29 September 2013 alone.
This year the Royal Melbourne Show boasted the largest exhibition of animals in Victoria, with more than 15,000 competition entries received, where more than 620 beef cattle, 880 horses, 3,500 dogs and 500 sheep and goats competed to win a prestigious blue ribbon.
There’s nothing like the Royal Melbourne Show and it would not be possible to develop and deliver such a unique, large-scale event, without the contribution made by all involved including RASV members, volunteers, exhibitors, sponsors, partners and suppliers.
The RASV is committed to improving the Royal Melbourne Show year on year and we would welcome and encourage you to provide the RASV feedback in relation to your experience at this year’s event.
The RASV looks to welcoming you at the 2014 Royal Melbourne Show to be held at Melbourne Showgrounds from Saturday, 20 September to Wednesday, 1 October 2014.
