Fife Show - The First 200 Years

About Fife Show - The First 200 Years

In 2022, on 21st May at Kinloss, Cupar, the Fife Show celebrates 200 years since the event was first held.

Full details of what’s on and when can be found on our website link above.

Tickets may be purchased in advance at https://fifeshow.com/book-your-2022-tickets
Save time and money at the Gate by purchasing tickets in advance.

Admission for those aged Under 14yrs is free but they must have a ticket. Parking is also free.

As part of the 200th anniversary event, there will be a Time Tunnel where you can see more about the history of the Show and of farming in Fife. One of the main attractions will be a parade depicting 200 Years of Farming, delivered in conjunction with the Fife Vintage Agricultural Machinery Club. Starting with handheld implements, the parade will move through horsepower right up to modern day machinery.

Watch showing classes for horses, cattle and sheep then see the horses in action – in ridden, driven and jumping classes. The Dog & Pet Shows can be entered on Show Day so bring along your two or four-legged friend and take part.

The Game Fair Area hosts gundog and birds of prey demonstrations, ferret racing, fly fishing and the gundog scurry.

Cupar & District Pipe Band will entertain you in the Main Ring and around the Showground.

Visit the Demonstration area, seeing how horseshoes are made and expertly fitted by the farriers or how to shear a sheep! Later in the day watch the finals of the Young Farmers Tug O’ War.

The large marquee in the Second Field has Classes for eggs and close by is the Cookery Theatre, run by the chefs from Elmwood College, with demonstrations on throughout the day. The same large tent houses Craft and Food & Drink sections, with a wide range of gifts and local produce on offer. Shop until you drop with over 150 trade stands selling everything from tractors to toys, cars to clothes and jam to jewellery, then take a seat in our covered Picnic Area to enjoy the wide variety of fresh food on offer.

The Show is very much a family event with plenty for kids to do and see. The Kids Countryside tent has stands hosted by local groups, including Branston, Fife Beekeepers and the Scottish Wildlife Trust, all with activities for families to take part in at the Show, as well as storytelling sessions throughout the day from Hamespun Tales. Here you will also find Cool Creatures - meet snakes, lizards, and other very cool animals. Nearby you will find Rare Breed animals and alpacas. Youngsters can become Fife Show Explorers, following the Showground Trail, finding out about food, farming & agriculture and answering a quiz along the way.

Fife Show is a great day out for all the family but is still, first and foremost, a traditional agricultural Show with Long Service Medals for workers in the agricultural & rural sector with over 30yrs employment presented in the Main Ring.

Join us on our beautiful 60acre parkland site at Kinloss, Cupar, Fife KY15 4PE
