Usk Show | Saturday 14th September 2024
On the second Saturday in September, every year since 1844, Usk Farmers’ Club have held the Usk Show to celebrate the very best of Monmouthshire farming and rural life. Now one of the biggest One-Day Agricultural Shows in the whole of the UK, its popularity is second-to-none.
At the 100 acre Usk Showground near the village of Gwernesney just outside Usk, the Show comprises 11 different Sections each holding their own competitions on the day. Usk Farmers Club Members bring their Cattle, Sheep and Pigs to compete in the Agricultural Livestock Section. There are thriving Horse Show and Show Jumping Competitions, as well as Goats, Rabbits, Horticulture, Homecrafts, a Companion Dog Show, Steam Corner and Vintage Tractors. We hope that the Poultry Section may be able to return in 2024, but this is dependent on the current Avian Influenza restrictions.
In our Main Ring & Countryside rings we have displays and demonstrations taking place throughout the day. For 2024, Paul Hannam & his Quad Bike Stunt Show will be performing in our Main Ring. Have a peak at his You Tube Channel for some of his past performances at the Royal Welsh Agricultural Show, Royal Cornwall Show among others – Paul Hannam You Tube
Paws for Thought Dog Display team along with Black Mountain Falconry, Rowan Working Horses, Usk Valley Gun Dogs and much more in our Countryside Ring. Paws for Thought put on a great display of around 10-12 dogs and their handlers racing against each other whilst completing obstacle courses and getting the audience to cheer for their favorite dogs. You can take a look at their work on their Facebook page
Over 300 traders join us each year outdoors, as well as in our Craft Marquee and Shopping Mall and our ever popular Food Market.
And you can come and enjoy it all!
We have something for everyone and we can’t wait to welcome you…
