The Kilgarvan Agricultural Show has been running since 1984 and they are proud that it only had to be cancelled twice: In 2001 because of the Foot & Mouth Disease, and once due to bad weather.
IT is easy to see why Kilgarvan Agricultural Show is so popular and with so much to see and do and this year will be no exception Thousands of visitors and locals make their way to Kilgarvan GAA grounds to join in with the fun and entertainment that is part and parcel of the Kilgarvan show.
The Kilgarvan Show is an annual agricultural and horticultural show based in the picturesque surroundings of Kilgarvan village.
There are various attractions within the show grounds to help entertain both young and old. From face painting to vegetable exhibits, Irish dancing to the best dressed granny and grandad of the day. It is all to be seen and experienced here on the day. There are bar facilities if you feel thirsty and chipper vans if you feel hungry.
Year after year the show gets better and better and is going from strength to strength. You will also see a variety of trading stands, amusements, dog show, livestock competitions, arts and crafts, baking and much much more!
The Kilgarvan Show never fails to be a great day out and is well worth the visit.
The showgrounds is O'Reillys field in the centre of the village and will start at 11am.
Show Books can be purchased in the local shops or why not look at their facebook page for more information.
The main highlight of the first day is the qualifying competitions for horses, foals, sheep and dogs which attracted people from all over the country.
Some of these were qualifiers for national and international agricultural shows and are an important part of Kilgarvan show.
For those not so interested in the agricultural and horticulture side of the show there was still plenty of competitions to enter including the best dressed lady, the Little Mister and Little Miss competition and of course the requisite Bonny Baby competition.
