A spokesperson for Ardara Show tells readers of www.thatsfarming.com (That’s Farming) what awaits at this year’s event.
The Ardara Agricultural Show returns to the beautiful town of Ardara on Saturday, August 12th, 2023.
Dating back to 1905, the show attracts thousands of visitors each year where a celebration of rural Ireland traditions, its people and their way of life will be showcased.
This family event features a fantastic family day out with live entertainment for kids and adults and an endless list of competitions and displays.
Its success is thanks to the thousands of visitors who attend each year and has developed as a must on everyone’s social calendar.
There will be so many sights and sounds to see and hear at the 2023 Ardara Agricultural Show, with a range of attractions for the whole family.
Animals take centre stage at the judging of local, national and championship livestock competitions, as well as the ever-popular dog show.
The show will host a range of trade stands and of course, no agricultural show would be complete without the traditional, age-old farming displays.
Attendees will be glad to see the return of favourites like the Vintage Show from our friends at Mid-West Donegal, McCormack’s fun fair, artisan market, giant marquee, and children’s sports.
There will be live music providing the soundtrack for the day from our new marquee in the field with a fully licensed bar opening after the judging with music from Darren Boot Burke and free children’s entertainment with magic shows from kids’ comedy, Magic Show Tour.
To tantalise your taste buds, a food court will be available in the GAA clubhouse with breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks available, something for everyone!
Parking will be available on the grounds and all around the town and there will be park-and-ride buses in place from designated areas that will be well signposted.
The show dance on show night will be in the marquee in the field with Duck Street Jam Band, a night not to be missed.
We are delighted Ardara Distillery is our main sponsor for two years running now, the home of Sliabh Liag Distillers.
It is very fitting that this great company is built on what will always be known as ‘The Show Field’, which we called home for many years. We look forward to working with them for many years to come.
Looking forward to seeing you all there and the weather is kind to us.
