The Royal Adelaide Show is entering its sixth 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 520 welfare agencies and community groups and supporting more than 400 schools across Adelaide's metro, regional, country and remote areas. Over 102,718 South Australians rely on Foodbank's services every month, with one third of them children.

Foodbank will be exhibiting this year as part of the 2018 Yellow Brick Road in the Jubilee Pavilion. Foodbank supporter, Brumby's, will be supplying products for the trail. So make sure you participate in the Yellow Brick Road this year and you will be supporting Foodbank to put food on the table of those in need. Foodbank will be selling merchandise including super hero capes and there will be free competitions for the kids at their fun-filled exhibit!

In addition to the Yellow Brick Road, Foodbank volunteers will be collecting gold coin donations at the gates on the Show's second Friday, 7 September. A donation of $2 will put more than 4 meals on the table of those Foodbank support.

Over the past years Show-goers and exhibitors have donated enough 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. To find out more please visit www.foodbanksa.org.au

Think Green

The Royal Agricultural & Horticultural Society of SA is committed to ensuring the Show reduces its impact on the environment and has implemented strategies to manage the waste produced during the event. About 80% of the waste comes from animals, straw, wood shavings and animal manure. This waste is collected and sent for soil composting and used in the production of fertilizer and other garden products.

In 2017, 98.8% of all waste from the Adelaide Showground was repurposed or recycled instead of going to landfill. Cardboard packaging is collected in special bins and separated for recycling, thus removing it from the waste stream. Wooden pallets and other structures are also recycled if they can no longer be used. Special bins are available for the collection of cans and plastic bottles. With the co-operation and support of visitors, Australian Green Clean and SUEZ, our caterers and the commercial traders at the Royal Adelaide Show, the Society will once again achieve the highest possible percentage of landfill diversion.

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 Show 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

St John First Aid facilities are available at the western end of the Atrium. St John volunteers will be on duty throughout the Show ready to offer first aid if required. St John staff will sell first aid kits and provide information at its Atrium Plaza and Jubilee Pavilion locations.
