Westmorland County Show

Following the resounding success of 2022, the Westmorland County Agricultural Society is excited to announce that the 2023 Westmorland County Show is proposed to be held over 2 days again on Wednesday 13 and Thursday 14 September.  This will be the third time in our history that the County Show will be a 2-day event.

As the pandemic and associated uncertainties remain, taking the decision early to continue as a 2-day event reinforces our commitment to ensuring the Show is as safe as possible for everyone concerned.  Covid-19 restrictions meant that we implemented a raft of changes for 2021 and some of these were so successful they are here to stay!

Located on the fringes of the Lake District, Westmorland County Show is a fantastic day out – voted as one of the UK’s favourite Shows and enjoyed by over 30,000 visitors every year.  A major livestock Show with classes for cattle, sheep, pigs, goats and alpacas, heavy and light horses too, there’s plenty to see.

Come and meet the foxhounds, get up close to magnificent cattle, marvel at the show jumping, discover the interactive displays in our Learning for Life Marquee, get inspired by the WI’s crafty creations, or cheer on your favourites in the Cumberland & Westmorland Wrestling.

Be tempted by artisan chocolates, cheeses, pies, gins and much more in the North West’s largest local Food Hall, or drop the children off at our creche and enjoy the Show at your own pace.

With the chance to discover the best of farming and the countryside, as well as seeing some of the country’s top quality livestock, shop till you drop amongst hundreds of trade stands or get involved with our Rural Craft have-a-go areas, you’ll be spoilt for choice at this year’s Show.
