There’s a huge choice of ticket options, with some evening event tickets including free entry to the grounds and activities taking place in the day. Those buying a whole show pass will be able to enjoy all the evening events, the Wednesday and Thursday daytime events and full access to the fair every day. As in other years there will be events on Friday and Saturday evenings; tickets will sell out well in advance so book early.

After all the excitement of the days’ events, visitors and competitors can relax and soak up the Western atmosphere in Western Town by night, with live bands playing into the late hours at the Red Grizzly Saloon.
