Cancelled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Hobart Showground’s cracker night is on again this year (Saturday May 29).

Together with a new sponsor, the Bright Star Cracker Night is taking place under a COVID-safe plan. That means in part that it is a ticketed event this year.

First held in May 2016, cracker night recreates an old Australian tradition, conducted under supervision, which allows children to safely enjoy an evening of fun and entertainment.

“Since we started this event, it has become very popular with children,” said Scott Gadd, CEO of the Royal Agricultural Society of Tasmania, which owns the Showground.

“The whole evening is designed for the entertainment of children, together with an early finish so that they can get home to bed.”

Lots of activities and entertainment will include Melbourne magician Nick Nickolas who is coming to Hobart exclusively for this event. Another feature performer is Samora Squid, the contortionist extraordinaire. There will also be carnival rides, a scarecrow, bonfire, fireworks, and food and beverages available.

Showground gates will open at 5.00pm on Saturday 29 May 29. Tickets (Children $2; Adults $10) can be purchased at https://tickets.rasv.com.au/Ticket/2021crackernight

Parking is free on the Showground and there is also Showground disability parking. The evening’s entertainment is due to wrap up following a grand finale and lighting of the bonfire at 8.00pm.
