Despite wet weather a successful show was held at Park Farm on Saturday, 6th August 2011 with very encouraging support from both town and country dwellers. The Society celebrated the 50th show since the amalgamation of Dumfries and Lockerbie Societies with an exhibition of photographs and reports from past shows and displays of vintage machinery from the 1960s.
There were a large number of entries in all livestock sections and the Society was pleased to host the 25th Anniversary of the Scotch Mule Association. Trade stands including the Craft Tent and Food Festival were very well supported.
In 2018 the Show hosted the Scottish National Hereford Show and the Bluefaced Leicester Progney Show.
There were new classes in the sheep section for Kerry Hill and Blue Texel.
Entertainment included Pedal Power v Parkour, a vintage machinery display, a display by Dumfries & Stewarty Foxhounds, Daffy Dill, Douglas The Clown and the Young Farmers Tug O’ War.
Details of the 2019 Show, which will be held on Saturday 3rd August, will appear here when they are available.
The home and garden arts schedule including the classes for walking sticks is available below.
