Foodbank SA

The Royal Adelaide Show is entering its fourth year supporting Foodbank South Australia to put food on the table of those who would otherwise go without.

Foodbank is South Australia’s largest food relief agency, supplying food to more than 500 welfare agencies and community groups and 350 schools across Adelaide’s metro, regional and country areas. Over 85,000 South Australians rely on Foodbank’s services every month, with one third of them being children.

At all entry gates there will be food donation bins where Show-goers can donate core staple, long-life foods such as tuna, canned ham, canned vegetables, canned soup, canned spaghetti and pasta sauce. So as you leave home on your way to the Show, please go through your pantry and grab a food donation to put in the Foodbank donation bins. In addition to the Show-long food drive, Foodbank volunteers will be collecting gold coin donations at the gates on the Show’s second Friday, 9 September.

Over the past years Show-goers and exhibitors have donated almost 10 tonnes of food to Foodbank, with enough food to feed 5,000 families doing it tough. Foodbank’s main belief is that no one should go hungry and we can all do something to join the fight against hunger in South Australia.

Think Green

The Royal Agricultural & Horticultural Society of SA is committed to ensuring the Show has only a small impact on the environment and has implemented strategies to manage the waste produced during the Show. About 80% of the waste comes from animals, straw, wood shavings and animal manure. Special bins are used in the animal pavilions for the collection of waste which is then sent for soil composting and used in the production of fertilizer and other garden products.

Cardboard packaging is collected in special bins and separated for recycling, thus removing it from the waste stream that would otherwise go to landfill. Wooden pallets are also recycled if they are broken and can no longer be used. Special bins have been constructed for the separation and collection of cans and plastic bottles. With the co-operation and support of visitors, SITA, our caterers and the commercial traders at the Royal Adelaide Show, the Society is greatly reducing the amount of waste going to landfill. 

Non-Smoking Policy

The Royal Adelaide Show is a SMOKE FREE event. Smoking is permitted in the designated smoking zones, designated areas in bars and 20m from the Showground boundary.  The remainder of the Showground, (including E-cigarettes) is smoke free.  Please check the Show Map to find the location of the smoking-zones.

In Case of Emergency

In the event that an emergency situation arises during the Show, the Royal Agricultural & Horticultural Society of SA has in place a set of policies and procedures designed to address emergency issues. The Society will do this by working closely with SA Police, Safework SA, SA Metropolitan Fire Service, other emergency services and relevant community agencies. If visitors see anything of concern to them, they should raise this with either, a hall attendant, pavilion supervisor, police officer or staff at the Royal Show office.

St John First Aid Facilities
