There’s only one place in Devon where on just three days of the year the county is revealed in all its glory!
Devon County Show is looking forward to treating its visitors to the best of food, farming and entertainment all in one day.
Farming is at the very heart of the Show – stockmen and women from the county and beyond will be competing in the show ring and agricultural machinery and suppliers will be out in force. There’ll be literally thousands of animals – from exceptional livestock to dazzling Arab horses, family ponies, canine superstars competing in the pedigree Dog Show, lofty alpacas and pigeons, poultry and guinea pigs. We’re putting together a thrilling programme of day-long entertainment. Get ready to buckle up for a monster ride with the UK’s number one Monster Truck team in the Mole Valley Farmers Main Arena. And have a go at driving a tractor!
When it comes to food and drink, we’re going large! Our fabulous Food & Drink Pavilion will be even bigger – and it’ll have a seating area where visitors can tuck into what they’ve just bought. And we’re delighted that top chef Michael Caines will be cooking up some incredible dishes in our cookery demonstration theatre.
There’ll be lots of hands-on activities for children. At the Children’s Farm they can get involved in the milking, experience hands-on baking, plant seeds and see the Sheep Show. Get the buzz in the Bees & Honey marquee- where they can spot the queen bee and make a candle. Plus, lots more!
