Last year’s Canning Show was a triumph, with record-breaking crowds of over 10,000 smiling people as Canning Agricultural, Horticultural & Recreational Society (aka CAHRS) celebrated our 110th year of enriching the community. Whilst 2020 comes with a very different set of circumstances, we are pleased to announce the Canning Show 2020 this year is planned to be held Friday 6 & Saturday 7 November, preparing to evolve, involve and inspire!

A creative wonderland with community heart, the line-up and ticket details for the Canning Show will be announced closer to the event, as per usual, however we are excited to release the Exhibition Schedule Of Entries early. From 3-year-olds to teenager amateurs to experienced artisans, everyone is encouraged to have a go and start growing, baking, painting, photographing, sculpting, flower arranging and more. Get your creative juices flowing now and get ready to showcase your wares at the Canning Show. All entries will be exhibited at the event in November, with the best being awarded over $13,000 in cash prizes.

CAHRS CEO Dianne Begg comments, “All positive signs continuing regarding COVID-19, we’re looking forward to Canning Show igniting people’s creativity, pleasure and inspiration this year.” Whilst some changes will be made in the Show’s delivery, she adds, “It will remain fun, filled with exciting competitions, entertainment, and amazing value for money. With social distancing and safety measures to be considered, our team is working hard to ensure that every part of the Show will be the safest, most enjoyable experience possible.”


Schedule Of Entries launched

The Canning Show is one of the largest annual exhibitions in the State that showcases a wide array of arts, crafts, hobbies, creations and produce. Open to everyone, from talented amateurs to awarded artisans, the competition is there to celebrate, promote, reward, and encourage diverse passions and talents, plus inspire others in the community. This year we’re excited to announce the Schedule Of Entries earlier than usual, to take advantage of these crazy times giving people more time to be crazily creative and productive!

To kick start an incredible Show experience, everyone in the community is encouraged to showcase their iso-creations or further practise their arts. Whether you’re wanting your 5 year old to practise their handwriting or chocolate crackle making, a kid with ambitions to one day star on LEGO Masters or you want to put your quarantine baking experiments to the test, there’s something for everyone. From discovering your new passion to practising professionals looking for esteem and honours, everyone has a chance to get involved, inspire others and take a sweet slice of over $13,000 in cash, awarded to the best exhibits in the Show!
