This year’s Show will be held on Wednesday 10th August 2022. 

We hope to see you there at our new venue in Penllyn.

We are thrilled to be marking the 250th anniversary of the Vale of Glamorgan Agricultural Society in 2022. The society was established in 1772 making it one of the very oldest on record. 2022 marks the beginning of an exciting new era for the Vale show as we move to Penllyn. There is a new site and a new layout but the old community spirit as the show comes home to Cowbridge. 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. Alongside the livestock and horse showing there are more than 200 Trade Stands on the field marketing and selling a huge variety of goods.

A Food Court 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, Dog Show, Rabbit Show and Countryside Marquee.
