The Devon County Agricultural Association is delighted to announce that the 125th Devon County Show will take place on Friday 2nd Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th July 2021.

The County Show, that was cancelled in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, will move from its usual mid-May dates for next year only.  Mary Quicke, DCAA Chairman said ‘we are absolutely committed to holding our Devon County Show in 2021.  We believe that, by moving the Show to early July, it will give more time for the restrictions to have eased, the roll out of a vaccine to take place and life to be getting back to normal.  We know that our supporters and visitors really missed the County Show this year, as we did, and we can’t wait to start planning for our 125th Show’. 

‘The County Show takes place on 90 acres of Showground allowing plenty of space for social distancing and moving the Show from its usual Thursday, Friday, Saturday to Friday, Saturday, Sunday will allow our busy Saturday crowd to be spread over two days.  We have taken care when choosing our new date to avoid clashing with other Shows and events and are incredibly grateful to our sponsors and tradestands, who have carried forward their 2020 bookings to our 2021 Show.’

Tradestand bookings will open in January and competition schedules will be available in the spring.  Visitors will be able to book tickets via the Show website www.devoncountyshow.co.uk in the New Year.
