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.
At the moment the Society is going ahead with the planning of this year’s Show on Saturday 1st August. We would hope to make a final decision in the middle of May.
***IMPORTANT*** – The Society has decided that in light of the current situation the AGM will not take place on Thursday 19th March 2020. We will let you know when we have a new date.
