Orkney's 2020 County Show Cancelled

‘After consultation with the committee, directors and office bearers, the Orkney Agricultural Society has decided to cancel the 2020 County Show originally planned for the 8th August. Many factors contributed to this decision, not least the uncertainty of the national COVID 19 guidance by summer 2020. Other considerations included the prospect of several thousand people in one location, the support required by the local authority, emergency services and local volunteer organisations. Here’s looking forward to the 2021 Show’

Orkney’s County Show is a fantastic opportunity to see some of Orkney’s quality livestock for which we are renowned.

Held each year on the second Saturday in August this is an agricultural show at its very best. It could happily compete with any of the numerous events like it held around Britain each summer.

With sections in cattle, sheep, horse, goats, dogs and poultry as well as an action packed entertainment programme there is certainly plenty for all to see and do.

The park is decorated with over 90 trade stands which highlight the quality of produce and crafts we are fortunate to experience here in Orkney.

Certainly a great day out for all and the most important date in the Orkney calendar!
