Country Shows in Dorset

Country Shows are summer outdoor agricultural events. There are competitions, with prizes awarded by judges, allowing farmers and breeders to show off their cattle or crops.
Rural life is fully showcased at all these events. You can see prized farm animals be paraded, taste locally produced food, marvel at the homecraft and horticulture displays and partake of a  fairground ride or two!
