Our indoor section always captivates the spectators with culinary delights, farm produce, handicrafts, flowers, photography and more. From the majestic beauty of the equine classes to the precision of cake baking, the show highlights the dedication and hard work of farmers, breeders, producers and creatives from across the region.

In light of the recent passing of PJ Timlin, the 71st show will also serve as a tribute to his legacy and contributions to the agricultural community.

He was a true expert in the cattle section and his passion and expertise will be remembered as the show participants honour his memory through the shared love for cattle.
