It is a traditional agricultural show held on the first Saturday in August each year. Dumfries, being primarily a livestock producing area, prides itself on the quality of the livestock on display, with the quality of dairy, beef and sheep sections second to none.
There is a very large and growing horse section with an extensive array of different classes. It has BSJA affiliation and is a qualifier for Blair Atholl.
The show has an enthusiastic goat section, including milking trials.
There are also sections for the home and garden industries, stick making, a large craft fair, a food festival with cookery theatre, a very popular and growing cheese competition which is the only one in Scotland outside the Highland Show and a young farmers section as well as a huge array of stands throughout the showfield.
We aim to put on an entertaining, educational show in a safe environment for all the family whether they be involved in farming or not.
Come and enjoy a great day out.
This year the Show was held on Saturday 3rd August. We hosted the Scottish National Ryeland Show and there were classes for Shetland Sheep.
