Amid the coronavirus outbreak causing the cancellation of numerous events worldwide, one of the most devastating announcements for Sydneysiders was the news that the annual Sydney Royal Easter Show wouldn’t be able to go ahead.

The hugely popular event has become a staple gathering around this time of year for Sydneysiders everywhere and this is the first time since the Spanish Flu outbreak of 1919 that the show has had to be cancelled.

While we were able to take comfort in the fact that the Easter show would be back bigger and better next year, many people wondered if it would be possible to bring a little Easter Show spirit to life by buying the show bags – and now you can!

Woolworths will be selling 12 different Sydney Royal Easter Show show bags this weekend!

Yep, 210 Woolies stores across the state will be selling a bunch of themed show bags for $30 including: Friends, Stranger Things, Harry Potter and Barbie.

“While we know Easter will be different this year, many Australian families will still be looking for ways to celebrate,” Woolworths NSW General Manager, Michael Mackenzie told Nine News.


“With familiar traditions more important than ever during this challenging time, we wanted to do something special for those that have been left disappointed by the Sydney Royal Easter Show’s cancellation.

“We are pleased our customers will still be able to purchase these showbags in our stores, and hope it can continue to bring a little bit of joy to family homes over the Easter weekend.”
