The gates will be opening on Saturday, 12th May for the spectacle that is the Ayr County Show. This year being a special year for the show with it being their 175th Show in their 181st Year, with its winning formula of celebrating the traditional and embracing the future the Ayr County Show has earned its place as a ‘ must do’ event on the calendars of both the farming community and families looking for a good value day out. The event includes exhibition & competition of many types of animals, Trade Stands, Crafts, Vintage Tractor Display, Sticks & Crooks, SWI Competitions, Young Farmers Competitions, Family Entertainment, Music, Children’s Marquee and Truck Ayr Lorry Show. Food & Drink is very much part of the event creating the very important link ‘Field to Fork’. The Ayrshire Agricultural Association are committed to keeping this event going forward with a good range of attractions throughout the show field whilst not losing the true agricultural roots of Ayr County Show.
