Sunday 28th August 2016!
The fair which began in 1990 at Scorrier House is a traditional country fair and aims to give the opportunity to both local people and visitors to the county a taste of country life.
The fair’s winning format has altered little since it first began but every year new and exciting extras are added to the programme. The main ring comes alive with heavy horses, children’s mini Olympics as well as a parade of beagles, falconry and falconry on horseback displays whilst working gun dogs amaze the crowds with their obedience. Perhaps though it is the sight of the donkey derby races that result in the most cheers – visitors are very much encouraged to join in the racing and also to have a flutter on each of the races.
This year we are thrilled to add to the main ring programme a parade of vintage tractors and flyball demonstrations where visitors to the show will be able to have a go.
Around the showground are many other attractions ideally suited to keep children entertained throughout the day - with rare breed animals, a treasure trail, ‘cooking for kids’, Cornwall Fire & Rescue, face painting, bouncy castle and even a Punch & Judy show!
A must for any dog lover, the companion dog show continues to grow from strength to strength with increasing entries every year, more dogs can be seen at the terrier and lurcher shows and displays.
Another spectacle not to be missed is the open Cornwall & Devon tug of war competition which includes all weights for ladies and gents.
Wendron Silver Band will be in attendance from midday; being positioned next to the food and drink marquee it is hoped visitors to the show will relax with a drink whilst enjoying the music and soaking in the country fair atmosphere.
The craft and food & drink marquees continue to grow each year offering the best from local businesses, local food is also served up in the many refreshment outlets around the show; local business can also be found throughout the showground with a vast array of wares.
The young farmer members will be keen to get the public involved with opportunities to have a go at sheaf pitching, a digger challenge and a tractor photo booth.
With free parking and the show starting at 10:30am, it is guaranteed to be a great day out, whether old or young, there will be plenty to see and do.
