Next year’s Show will be on Wednesday 12th August 2020. Hope to see you there!
Always held on a Wednesday in August, the Vale Show regularly attracts over 20,000 people from all walks of life, from town and from countryside. The Show has grown considerably over the years and is now the largest one day event in the Vale of Glamorgan.
The Vale of Glamorgan Agricultural Society was established in 1772 for farmers to meet and compete in annual produce and livestock competitions. Eventually the Society created the Vale of Glamorgan Show, initially held in Cowbridge, it moved to its magnificent site at Fonmon Castle in 1998.
There are more than 200 Trade Stands on the field marketing and selling a huge variety of goods. A Food Hall stands in the centre of the field selling produce, most of which has been grown or made in the Vale, along with a Shopping Mall which allows small traders to exhibit. The Show hosts a large Craft Fair and Horticultural Show along with a Home Produce marquee.
For the first time this year we have a new Rabbit Show. There is also a KC Registered Dog Show on one side of the field with Cattle and Sheep Classes in a paddock on the castle end of the field. Horse Classes run in the main ring from 6.30am until 3pm when there is a spectacular Grand Parade of all the Prize Winning Animals. The Show concludes with the Scurry competition at 5.30pm.
