2020 Royal Adelaide Show Volunteer Team - Update

Due to increased restrictions now in place regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), to protect the health of our staff and volunteers, and in response to recommendations from the Australian Government, we are unfortunately unable to recruit NEW volunteers for this year’s Royal Adelaide Show. Our volunteer recruitment program involves a face to face interview stage and at present this is not possible.

If you are a current (2019) member of the Royal Adelaide Show Volunteer Team, we hope you are able to join us again this September! Current team members will be contacted via email shortly to advise of the process for this year and any further updates to the Volunteer Program for 2020.

The Royal Adelaide Show is still “all systems go” and we look forward to welcoming you when the gates open on Friday 4 September 2020!

If you have any queries, please call the Royal Show office on 8210 5210 or email volunteer@adelaideshowground.com.au.
