Toowoomba Show organisers create COVID-19 template for other major Queensland shows

The 2021 Toowoomba Royal Show will be the biggest event of its kind in Queensland since the onset of COVID-19.

A new COVID-safe plan negotiated with Queensland Health will allow numbers through the gates to increase from 10,000 to 15,000 people per day over three days from April 16–18.

However, the Royal Agricultural Society of Queensland (RASQ) will have to sacrifice its claim to hosting the second-biggest horse event in Australia to enable the increased crowd numbers.

Organisers have cut equestrian events and entrant numbers by half, from 4,000 entries in 2019 to 2,000 for this year.
