Royal Cornwall Show
One of Cornwall's top family days out.
4th – 6th June, Wadebridge
Most of the year the vast Royal Cornwall showground near Wadebridge remains empty, but every June it is transformed into a town for this huge agricultural show. With a tradition going back over 200 years this is one of the biggest events in Cornwall’s calendar and one not to be missed.
Grab an ice cream and a grassy spot by the main ring and watch showjumping, parachute displays and a traditional parade of hounds. Wander round the shops grabbing show bargains, stock up on tasty treats in the Cornish food marquee and get up close to prize winning animals of all shapes and sizes.
Top tip – leave early to avoid the traffic queues and dress for the weather as the showground is quite high and exposed – you’ll need wellies if it’s wet and plenty of suncream and a hat if it’s sunny.
