What? Dorset County Show
Where? Dorchester Showground, Dorset, DT2 7SD
When? 7th & 8th September 2019

The Dorset County Show returns this year with a range of attractions and activities for attendees of all ages. It has become one of the county’s largest annual outdoor events, attracting 60,000 visitors and is the flagship event for the Dorchester Agricultural Society. Agriculture sits at the core of the Show alongside rural trade, crafts and food; the traditional livestock judging, equine competitions and horticulture classes maintain the Show’s ethos and atmosphere while new ways of promoting farming have been introduced. 

The show hosts various displays and sections where the public can witness farming practices such as milking or shearing. In 2018 a brand-new education area was launched, Fabulous Food & Farming, full of hands-on learning stations about farms, food and heathy living. Additionally, the public enjoy a variety of attractions and 450 trade stands.

New for 2019 is the 'Dorchester Street' retail area, where the organisers will be showcasing all the different local suppliers that the county town has to offer. 

Early bird tickets are currently on sale for £14 per adult, and children under 16 go free. The price will then be £18 per adult from 1st August.
