Countdown is on to Ekka 2017 presented by RACQ

Members of Queensland’s largest Club were on hand Thursday to celebrate the launch of Queensland’s largest and most loved annual event – Ekka.

With just over one month until Ekka begins RACQ’s Renee Smith said the Club was proud to be involved once again, with the iconic Brisbane event this year celebrating 140 years.

“RACQ and Ekka are both proudly Queensland for more than a century and we’re so excited to be involved in Ekka again this year,” Ms Smith said.

“There are some really exciting additions for 2017 including a second nightly fireworks show at an earlier time so kids don’t miss out.

“And of course there will be all the traditional favourites including the woodchop, rides, fashion parades and the RACQ baby animal nursery.”

Ekka 2017 runs from Friday 11 August for 10 days.

RACQ members can receive 15 percent off pre-purchased tickets in store and online until 10 August.
