JOIN IN THE FUN!
A traditional rural agricultural show and a fun day out for all the family!
Established in 1869, Bowes Show is a traditional rural agricultural show, run by a committee of volunteers, showcasing the heritage and key aspects of local farming life in Teesdale and the wider Durham Dales.
Bowes Show provides a wonderful opportunity for a family day out in the beautiful rural setting overlooking the historic Bowes Castle. It is a chance for the local community to come together to socialise, show and maintain traditional rural breeds of livestock and traditions of the area.
A great family day out with lots to see and do; main ring attractions, a craft and farmers market marquee, refreshments, trade stands and also classes to enter on the day for our four-legged friends!
For a relatively small rural show we have a vast array of showing classes for different breeds of cows, sheep and horses and it’s a great opportunity to see the animals up close. The industrial marquee, which is one of the most impressive of the local shows in the number and variety of entries, contains a wealth of skills in baking, flower arranging, handicrafts and photography and is key to encouraging the next generation through the children’s classes!
