Canning Show

The 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.

The Show Days consist of a full scheduled sixteen hour stage show, roving entertainment, a variety of stalls, LIVE onsite broadcast with HeritageFM 107.3 and a large sideshow with games, rides and showbags. Friday night sees the sky light up, celebrating the opening of the Show with the annual Fireworks Display at 9:00pm. Saturday the Show rolls on with exhibits put on by the local community, stilt walking fun, face painting, petting farms and an array of activities and demonstrations for the whole family. The Show concludes Saturday night, featuring a headline act – transforming the Show into Concert!


Enjoy the bright light and the spectacular fireworks on Friday night, music from the City of Canning Band, the amazing ZAP Circus, have fun at the Sideshow Alley and enjoy the roving entertainment!

On Saturday, enjoy a different type of day out, bring along your friends and family to the Show for morning coffee or lunch. Meet Chef Dale and the talented painter Jackie Peach and don’t forget the shopping at the Vintage Collective Markets.  There is always new and exciting things to be seen at the Make Smoking History Canning Show. Be sure you’re not the only one to miss out!

As well as entertainment and displays, what separates this event from other fairs and festivals, is what makes us a SHOW – being the participation of the community. What quite literally makes this event a Show, is the platforms and opportunity that it gives members of the community to showcase their skills, talents and hobbyist items. Whether you knit, bake, paint, draw or busk on the streets, there’s something for everyone at the Show. More information on how you can take part can be found by clicking HERE.
