The COVID-19 pandemic impacted everyone last year and one of the biggest casualties was the cancellation of The Sydney Royal Easter Show. This was only the third time in its history that The Sydney Royal Easter Show had been cancelled.
It wasn’t just The Sydney Royal Easter Show that was impacted last year as a result of COVID-19, hundreds of rural shows across Australia were cancelled due to fears that it would be impossible to adhere to social distancing protocols.
Agricultural shows contribute over $1 billion to the Australian economy each year with over 6 million people attending the shows. However, due to the global pandemic, rural towns were hit hard as a significant revenue stream was cut.
The Sydney Royal Easter Show has introduced a fantastic initiative for this year’s event in the form of the Big Bush BBQ.
Each day of the Show, a different NSW show society will answer the call, fire up the barbecue and grab their trusty tongs to cook a classic Aussie sausage sizzle.
The Big Bush BBQ is different to most barbecues as all money spent at the stall will go right back to the community representing the barbecue on that given day. This will ensure that the sausage you eat at The Sydney Royal Easter will be even tastier.
Every day at The Sydney Royal Easter Show, we will be talking to the regional community getting behind the barbecue on Show Radio.
