Arts & Crafts Competition

Held during the Sydney Royal Easter Show, this is the biggest Arts & Crafts Competition in Australia, attracting over 4,500 entries in a total of almost 300 classes.


Arts & Crafts have been a feature of the Easter Show almost continuously since 1869, when the first Arts & Crafts Exhibition was held at Cleveland Street School. Over the intervening years the Arts & Crafts Competition has changed significantly, reflecting the changing tastes, passions and fashions of Australian society at large as some arts and crafts have risen to prominence while others have faded away.
