10th September 2016
On the second Saturday in September, every year since 1844, Usk Farmers’ Club have held the Usk Show to celebrate the very best of Monmouthshire Farming and Rural Life. Now 171 years old, the Show's popularity is second-to-none and it has become one of the biggest one-day agricultural shows in the whole of the UK.
At its 100 acre site near the village of Gwernesney just outside Usk (SatNav: NP15 1DD), it currently comprises 11 different sections each holding their own competitions on the day. Usk Farmers Club members bring their cattle, sheep and pigs to compete in the Livestock Section. There is a thriving Horse Show and Show Jumping Competitions, as well as Goats, Poultry, Rabbits, Horticulture, Homecrafts, a Companion Dog Show, Steam Corner and Vintage Tractors.
We have attractions and demonstrations throughout the day in our Main and Countryside Rings, plus rural craft demonstrators, free childrens activities and music from Usk Brass Band.
Over 300 traders join us each year outdoors and in our Food Hall, Craft Marquee or Shopping Mall.
We have something for everyone and we can’t wait to welcome you!
