Since 1821, an annual Show has been held in Fife to encourage and showcase the breeding of livestock. Today, The Fife Show is held annually, on the third Saturday of May, just outside Cupar, and is one of the most popular one day agricultural shows in the country.
Thousands of visitors come to see livestock and machinery, both vintage and modern, at close quarters. While retaining the feel of a traditional agricultural event, the Show has extended its activities into the realms of wider environment and related countryside issues with the introduction of a Game Fair area. Main ring entertainment, as well as the Food & Drink sections, alongside trade stands and amusements for the children ensure that the Show provides a great day out for all ages.
The Show is run by volunteers and its aim is to promote, support and work with agriculture in Fife and beyond. We encourage individuals to become involved at whatever level suits them – as a new, participative committee member; as a volunteer to help set-up or steward on the day or as a friend of the show in another capacity. Help is needed in many areas and always very much appreciated.
