Devon’s big day out brings together the very best of food, farming and rural life - plus lots of fun - all rolled into one.

See the incredible animals – livestock, horses, dogs and fur and feather

Taste the very best of local food and drink – in the Food & Drink Pavilion and around the showground

Enjoy a world of entertainment with the Monster Trucks*, the Grand Parades of Livestock*, show jumping, Zorb football, Massey Ferguson tractor parade, sheep shearing, metalwork competitions and lots, lots more!

Relax at their new Watering Hole and enjoy live music, street food, and plenty of seats all under one gigantic red and blue roof

Stay late!  Music will spill on into the evening with Queen tribute band Rhapsody on Thursday and a Sparks tribute act on Friday.

Visit the new Ocean Discovery Zone and come face-to-face with life-size inflatable sea creatures in this stunning new marine conservation area

You are invited to the biggest Royal Wedding party in the county (probably!) to celebrate the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on Show Saturday (May 19) – live TV coverage from Windsor, giant confetti throw, wedding trees and more.

Children and families will love our Mole Avon Wheelie Wild Family Trail! Visit the Farm Wise Children’s Farm and watch the milking, press some apples and lots more.

Marvel at Westcountry crafts created by the talented exhibitors

Explore displays to commemorate the centenary of the First World War including how the Women’s Land Army in Devon helped to feed the nation; some of the 30,000 poppies, hand-made last year to remember the lives lost from the South West, will be sold in aid of the Royal British Legion

Take a ride on the Devon Eye and enjoy fairground fun

Enjoy a unique shopping experience

Discover the world of the honeybee
