Pick the first weekend in July for your summer holiday by the lake and enjoy the best of the Cotswolds in one fantastic day out.
The Cotswold Show takes place over two days and is one of the most popular regional shows nationwide. From spectacular arena attractions and traditional rural skills demonstrations to mouth watering cookery demonstrations. With lots of opportunities to learn about country life and skills too in a fun environment it’s a perfect action packed family day out.
This really is a dog friendly day out too. Why not enter your dog in the Fun Dog Show or try out their skills in the Dog Agility Course. You will be amazed watching the Queen Anne Cup where highly trained dogs demonstrate their skills in this prestigious event.
For younger kids there are donkey rides, tree climbing, a fun fair and lots of other fun attractions. No country show is complete of course without farm animals and rare breeds on show – something kids love seeing.
There is falconry, outdoor pursuits to try, arts and crafts and finally what the Cotswold’s does really well: food and drink! Two music acts can also be enjoyed to get you in the party mood whilst munching on the best local delicacies.
