Central & West Fife Show
Farming Fun for all the Family
Central & West Fife Show will be held on Saturday 4th June with a day of family fun and animal antics. Some of the highlights of this year’s show include a Farm Petting Zoo with calf, lambs, piglets and baby chicks for children (and adults) to see and interact with. There will also be a display by the renowned Mordor Gun Dogs.
On the run up to the show, there has also been a huge interest in the children scarecrow competition, which has been opened up to schools in the area. Entries are open for children up to 14 years old and can be brought along on the day before 11am. Each entry into the competition will also allow free entry to the show for the child and one adult.
The Royal Highland Education Trust will also be in attendance showing children how to milk a cow and children will also have the opportunity to enter the design a poster and decorate a cup cake competition.
The show is continuing its strong focus on local food and crafts, with cookery demonstrations by Jenny Thomson from Courses for Cooks and the national heat of Young Farmers, Ready Steady Country Cook competition. The Food and Craft tent will also be showcasing local foods and craft from a variety of Scottish producers.
Central & West Fife Show enables the public to see a variety of animals including dairy and beef cattle, sheep, poultry, Clydesdale horses, ponies and show jumping. The main ring entertainment includes Clydesdale Horse Turnouts, Terrier Racing and the Regional Tug of War Qualifiers for the Royal Highland Show. If the entertainment in the main ring isn't for you then there is still plenty to see such as a vintage steam engine with musical organ and a variety of trade stands featuring everything from tractors to toys.
The show is also holding a Companion Dog Show, with classes ranging from pedigree puppies through to the waggiest tail. Entries are taken from 1.30pm on the day with judging starting at 2pm.
