Canning Show

(CMYK) Make Smoking History_LogoThe Canning Show is conducted each year by the Canning Agricultural, Horticultural & Recreational Society. This year the ‘Make Smoking History Canning Show’ is proudly sponsored by Healthway promoting the Make Smoking History message. Further information on the message can be found by clicking HERE.


This year’s Show will play host to the International Year of Light, in tribute to Light & Light Technology. The Show will celebrate the challenge by inspiring crafters, photographers and artists to think about light and shade, and the moods light can create. A large exhibition of floriculture and horticulture is planned for showcase, as we celebrate the life that photosynthesis gives us, and entertainment galore is set to hit the showgrounds as after all, entertainment in its many forms is what ‘lights up our world’.

The Show Days consist of a full scheduled sixteen hour stage show, roaming entertainment and a large sideshow with games, rides, showbags and stalls of all kinds. Friday night will see the Canning sky light up with Westfield Carousel’s Fireworks Show commencing at 9:00pm. Saturday the Show will roll on with exhibits from the local community, and inspiring displays of light and light technology alike, concluding with a headline act TBA closing the Show on a highly visual production which will include the use of laser and show lights beside the globes that light up Sideshow Alley!

The organisation of this annual event remains one of the main tasks of the Committee of Management. Held in the first week of November, the Show attracts around 11,000 people to take part in a full programme of entertainment and display of cultural exhibits by local residents. This year the Society celebrates 120 Show Years, we encourage anyone with awards, photos or any other Canning Show memorabilia from the late 1800′s to early 1900′s to contact us in helping create a moment of reminiscing for all Show goers!
