The Royal National Agricultural and Industrial Association of Queensland (RNA) has announced a date change for the Ekka 2014 to Friday 8 August to Sunday 17 August.
Normally, the Ekka commences on the second Thursday in August and finishes 10 days later on the Saturday.
RNA Chief Executive Brendan Christou said the change will make the Ekka more accessible to visitors, providing families and those who work with two full weekends to enjoy all aspects of the show.
“It also means that the much-loved night time entertainment program at Ekka 2014 will, for the first time, run for all 10 days of show, commencing on the very first night,” Mr Christou said.
The change was made in response to visitor feedback and following consultation and communication with a broad range of the RNA’s stakeholders.
