The Devon County Show is all about wearing wellies with pride, performing diggers and parading cattle, and it’s one of the most important events in the South West’s agricultural calendar. Held annually at Exeter’s Westpoint Arena, the show is an open air celebration of rural Devon and it’s a real family event.
Wander thousands of stalls laden with homemade foods, local produce and arts and crafts, and gather for displays and spectacles including live music, animal displays and demonstrations. The Devon County Show is held for three days each May and it’s a unique day out that’s got something for all ages. The showground is huge (you’ll never see everything in one day) so comfortable footwear is a must, and dogs are more than welcome to come along too.
Every year’s show is different than the one before, so no matter how often you go you’ll see new performances – and the looks on the children’s faces show that you don’t need to be an expert to have great fun watching the cattle! Dogs are always more than welcome at the show, so take him along and let him enjoy all the sounds and smells of the country. The showground opens at 8am.
