The 2017 Ryedale Show

Whilst the Great Yorkshire Show is arguably one of the most well-known events on the agricultural calendar, it is by no means the only one in our beautiful county. You can see a list on page 8 of our current Visitor Guide which is stocked by most good Tourist Information Centres, downloadable via PDF from our website or viewed on the electronic version here: Visit Yorkshire: 2017 Guide

Tuesday 25th July sees the 151st Ryedale Show, held in Welburn Park, Kirkbymoorside, North Yorkshire.

The Ryedale Show was established in 1855 and is a traditional Agricultural Show renowned for its very high standard of entries in all Sections and Trade Stands that attend in ever growing numbers each year. 

The Show is run with both the farming community and townspeople's interests in mind and there are attractions for everyone of all ages.

The show offers great value for money, with a full and varied day of entertainment with some wonderful retail therapy as well.

Situated within a natural amphitheatre, there are eight rings running throughout the day, exhibiting prime cattle, horses, sheep, pigs and goats. There are also sections for fur & feather, produce, WI/YCA and children’s classes together with sheep dog trials and a dog show. Prize money in excess of £20,000 is up for grabs, not to mention some fabulous trophies.

In the region of 200 quality trade stands attend each year, with many having exhibited each year for at least 10 years. They openly say that it is like a "family meeting" and this makes the atmosphere unique, warm and very friendly.
