17th to 19th May 2018
2018 Devon County Show; a giant celebration of country life
"Devon's biggest day out" is how the Devon County Show advertises itself via its website, and we couldn't agree more.
For instance, the 2018 show programme highlights just how much is lined up over the three days. From the competition starting at 7.30 am on the 17th to the City of Exeter Band and Pipes at the close on the 19th, there will be something for everyone taking place.
Staged at Westpoint in Exeter, enjoy a giant celebration of country life through country competitions, local food and drink, traditional entertainment and masses of crafts.
Originally a farming show, the event has grown into so much more. It's still an agricultural show with farming at its heart, where everyone can come to see livestock, the latest in farm machinery and equipment and share everything else that makes up life on a farm.
But then on top of that are so many more elements to enjoy. Food and drink make up a big part of the day as Devon farmers, shops and factories come to sell their delicious local produce.
Craft stalls are a chance for Devon individuals or small companies to sell their goods. Plus the family-focused fun and games keep everyone amused.
The shows and competitions are always worth seeing, along with the many other displays and demonstrations, from classic cars to exciting bike jumps.
Whatever it is you love about Devon, you'll find it at The Devon County Show. Get your tickets online to avoid the queues.
Exeter gets busy with visitors over the Devon County Show weekend, which is understandable as it's the closest city.
For accommodation, avoid the crowds and travel away from the Westpoint Arena in the opposite direction to Sidmouth. We're roughly the same distance away but on the beautiful south Devon coast, in a quiet spot by the sea.
