Royal Agricultural Society of Queensland CEO Damon Phillips is assuring locals they do not need to miss the Commonwealth Games action to support this year’s Heritage Bank Toowoomba Royal Show on Thursday 12 to Saturday 14 April.

Damon says there is no compromise needed as this year the Toowoomba Show will be live streaming the Commonwealth Games on an eight square metre big screen television.

Damon says sports fans can settle back in Bavarian style seating within the new Commonwealth Games precinct and Food Truck Village to cheer on our Australian athletes towards gold.

“This brand new addition to the show line up will be open all hours of the day and into the evening as well as the ability to enjoy nightly food and beer pairing sessions hosted by celebrity Paul West and live music, all without missing a single Games event,” said Damon.

The Food Truck Village will keep sports fans and their entourage fed and watered, bringing together a variety of international cuisines.

The precinct boasts something for everyone, offering favourites like German sausages to Mexican burritos, Filipino street food to Italian pasta, as well as a range of craft beer and other beverages.

The Toowoomba Show will also feature the RASQ Wine Show, showcasing more than 200 wines from 60 wineries across the nation, competing for the prestigious title.

The Chronicle Lifeline Bookfest will be held at the Founders Pavillion for its 39th year, with thousands of books on sale for no more than five dollars. The two day event will raise proceeds for crisis support and suicide prevention across the Darling Downs and South West Queensland.

This year’s Baby and Toddlers Expo will also take place at the Show, to educate new or expecting parents about fertility, pregnancy, babies, and toddlers.
