Harrogate boasts the annual Great Yorkshire show, which is traditionally held on the second Tuesday of July each year for 4 days. The hosts of events are endless. Over 125,000 visitors travel from all sides of the UK to experience some of Britain’s finest agricultural shows, which also has a huge impact in educating our future generations.
The food Hall at the show gives you the chance to sample fine local produce, and take home your own piece of Yorkshire. Indulge in local cheeses and home-made treats. The cookery theatre will teach you how to work the magic yourselves, with a whole host of demonstrations.
See yourself as a bit of a country fellow? Why not brush up your skills and watch the demonstrations of some country activities like dry stone walling, fly fishing, pole climbing or Gundog training! Then feast your eyes on the famous international sheep shearing competition and English National Championships.
Horse lovers will be in for a treat, as there will be top- class show jumping and equine classes. There will also be fashions shows, draped with fine country attire and the fresh talent of up and coming designers.
Cattle parades, hound shows and exhilarating falconry displays will inspire children to enjoy the outdoors. There really is entertainment to suit all ages and tastes.
