Event Details

Three days of Cornish farming, food and fun at the Royal Cornwall Show.

The Royal Cornwall Show has been a showcase for the county since it was first held back in 1793 and as you’d expect from one of the best agricultural shows in the UK, it offers a fascinating glimpse into rural life in Cornwall.

For three days each year the dedicated showground at Wadebridge is transformed into a living town, bustling with life, energy, agriculture, entertainment and trade. It is the biggest event on the Cornish calendar and continues to go from strength to strength, attracting around 120,000 visitors annually.

Agriculture still sits firmly at its heart and is described as one few true agricultural shows that remain. Competition is always hot within the cattle, sheep, pig and goat sections with large entries attracted from across the UK. There's a very large agricultural trade area with all aspects of the industry represented, including a comprehensive array of machinery on display.

As well as the agricultural content, there is the famous flower tent decked out with wonderful displays from individuals and local nurseries. The main ring offers a full three days of entertainment featuring different headline acts each year, plus show jumping and a fast and furious inter-hunt relay. There is also a full programme of entertainment and demonstrations in the countryside area, alongside Cornish heritage and Cornish wrestling. You’ll find busy marquees dedicated to goats and rare breeds, cage birds and poultry, bees and rabbits, there’s a major dog show, a traditional steam fair, the Cornwall Festival of Dance, forestry and if that’s not enough then there’s the motor fair, crafts, health and beauty ... in fact, something for all the family.

There are more than 1000 trade stands to satisfy your retail therapy needs. You'll find a fantastic range of Cornish food and drink for you to try and buy straight from the suppliers within the Cornwall Food & Farming Pavilion. The range of trade stands is immense, it really is shopping heaven.

Responsible dog owners can bring their well behaved dogs, kept on a non-retractable lead at all times to the show.

Why not come along and join the fun at Great Cornish Get-Together in June.
