The Dorset County Show

This year's Show is on the 1st & 2nd September 2018 For over 175 years Dorchester Agricultural Society has celebrated agriculture and rural life within the county of Dorset. The first exhibition was held in 1840 and this has now developed in to the two day Dorset County Show which takes place on the first weekend in September.

The Show is continually developing and introducing new attractions such as the Shopping@theAvenue Marquee, Heavy Horse Village and the Dorset Artisan Craft Marquee.

The Show encompasses competitive classes in:

  • Cattle
  • Dairy Goats
  • Sheep
  • Pigs
  • Sheep Shearing
  • Horses
  • Show Jumping
  • Homecraft
  • Horticulture
  • Farm Produce

As well as these competitive classes the weekend showcases rural skills, local food and drink producers, Main Ring entertainment and a wide variety of trade stands.

Throughout the year the Society's work continues with other events such as a Spring Show in March, Sheep Dog Trials and a Ploughing Match in October

We will be at the show all weekend with our friends at Lanehouse Suzuki & Vauxhall. Find out the full Dorset County Show schedule here:
