The Devon County Show - 17th to 19th May 2018
Who's ready for Devon's biggest day out, as the Devon County Show advertises itself via its website.
We think they're right, as the 2018 show programme highlights just how much is lined up throughout the three days. The competitions start at 7.30am on the 17th and then the three days are jammed with family activities and stalls. Right through to the City of Exeter Band and Pipes at the close on the 19th May. There really will be something for everyone on offer.
Taking place at Westpoint in Exeter, guests should be ready to experience a giant celebration of everything country life and Devon related. Expect country competitions, local food and drink, traditional entertainment and masses of crafts.
Originally a farming show, the event has grown into so much more. It's still an agricultural show with farming at the centre of it all, where everyone can come to discuss livestock, see the latest in farm machinery and equipment and share everything else that makes up life on a farm.
But then on top of that are so many more elements that make up the day; from food and drink stalls run by farmers, shops and factories selling their delicious local produce, to craft stalls selling handmade goods.
Plus the family-focused fun and games keep everyone amused.
The shows and competitions are always worth seeing, along with the many other displays and demonstrations, from classic cars to exciting bike jumps.
Just for 2018: with the Royal Wedding taking place over the same weekend, the biggest party in the county is being planned in celebration! We look forward to seeing what that involves!
