County Show


Orkney’s County Show is a fantastic opportunity to see some of Orkney’s quality livestock for which we are renowned.

Held each year on the second Saturday in August this is an agricultural show at its very best. It could happily compete with any of the numerous events like it held around Britain each summer.

With sections in cattle, sheep, horse, goats, dogs and poultry as well as an action packed entertainment programme there is certainly plenty for all to see and do.

The park is decorated with over 90 trade stands which highlight the quality of produce and crafts we are fortunate to experience here in Orkney.

Certainly a great day out for all and the most important date in the Orkney calendar!
