About the Penistone Agricultural Show

2023 is our 150th Show!About the Penistone Agricultural Show

We are looking forward to another fantastic show in 2023, with something for every member of the family.

This is our 150th annual agricultural show, celebrating farming, food and agriculture.

This year’s show is once again going to be brimming with entertainment, competitions, information and activities. There is a huge array of livestock competitions, farm machinery, food demonstrations, handicraft, homecraft and horticulture competitions, craft stalls, music, bars, vintage vehicles, rural crafts, dog show, food stalls and trade stands.

It’s a big day out!

Plus you can eat some scrumptious delights in our Tea Rooms. There is the option to buy a lunch or afternoon tea in advance of show day. These completely sold out last year and we are expecting the same this year.

The show is open from 8am and will close at 6pm. We are anticipating a very busy day again and so we would advise buying tickets in advance.

Looking forward to seeing you all on Saturday 9th September, 2023
