Producers, exhibitors reeling as massive Brisbane show Ekka is cancelled with just days to go

Producers hoping to show off two years of work have been left devastated after organisers of Brisbane's huge agricultural show cancelled the event with just days to go.

Ekka, which was to be held this weekend at the Brisbane Showgrounds, has been cancelled for the second year in a row due to the growing Delta outbreak in south-east Queensland.

South-east Queensland’s lockdown has been extended until 4:00pm on Sunday as authorities try to contain the Delta outbreak with 13 new locally acquired cases today.

The state recorded 15 new cases of COVID-19 in total, two of which were overseas acquired and detected on a bulk carrier off the Queensland coast.
