There’s something for every member of the family at the Royal Cornwall Show.
It’s one of the Westcountry’s biggest annual events and is brim-full of exhibits and activities which offer so much in the way of entertainment, competition, information, shopping and all that’s best in food and farming.
It’s a time and place to meet old friends, conduct business, enjoy Cornwall in all its glory and to welcome thousands of visitors from outside our county.
Having been founded in 1793, more than two centuries later our aim is to keep raising the standard. It’s good for agriculture, good for tourism, good for the economy, the environment and good for the soul!
This is a top agricultural show which attracts huge numbers of animals, entered into the hundreds of classes which are refined each year. And year on year people travel from further and further afield in the hope of coming away with an award.
Equine, cattle, sheep, pig and goat sections, rare breed classes. A top flower show and thriving countryside area. Rabbits, dogs, poultry, pigeon and cage birds (avian flu allowing) – even bees get noticed here!
We support and promote Cornish-grown and Cornish-produced food both in the trade section and in our own cafes and restaurants.
Main ring entertainment is mounted on a grand scale and the traditional steam fair is a colourful extravaganza; there are stages and avenues alive with music, song and dance.
You can come to the Royal Cornwall Show with a single-minded ambition to buy a tractor or a car. Here is where you will see them all on display.
Interested in crafts? Planning a wedding? Want to shop in a recreation of Wadebridge town centre? Is woodland your thing?
Whatever your interest, we aim to make you very welcome here.
