The Aberfeldy Show is held over 2 days - Friday 7th and Saturday 8th August.

On Friday there are Horse and Pony classes for children of all ages - from 4 to 64!  The fun begins at 9.00am with the slightly more serious show classes, then the working hunter classes and after lunch time, the fancy dress on horseback and rounding off the day with the mounted games.

Bring along your pet too - there's a pet show at 1.00pm for pets of all shapes, sizes and species!

There's also the funfair, bucking bronco and various trade stances selling a variety of craft and other items.

 

                                               

Saturday morning is when the farmers in the area take the opportunity to compete against each other for the championships in the Sheep and Cattle sections which begin at 9.00am.   This is also when the judging of Highland Ponies and Clydesdale Horses begins.  By lunchtime, the various Championships have been decided and they all come together for Champion of Champions.

From 11.00am you can watch the local Highland Dancers, Heavyweight Athletes and see the display of Vintage Tractors.

                     

On the Saturday Afternoon there is a full programme of Highland Games which begins with the arrival of the Pipe Band who will march from the Square in Aberfeldy, over the historic Wade's Bridge and into Wade's Park.   The Pipe Band then leads the Games Chieftain and members of the Clan Menzies on a march around the arena.  The Gathering will then be declared officially open by our 2015 Chieftain Mr Duncan McDiarmid of Castle Menzie, Aberfeldy.  Duncan is a past Chairman of the Society and long-time supporter of the show.  He will also present awards for Long Service in Agriculture and Estate Work.

During the afternoon you will be treated to Open Highland Dancing competitions , Piping competitions, the Hill Race, Wrestling, Tug o'War, Terrier Racing, and the carrying of the Menzies Stone.

You can also visit the marquee and view the talents of the local gardeners in the Horticultural Show and the ladies of the Scottish Women's Institute in the Industrial Section.

Following on from last year's success we will again have a Craft Fair for local "crafty people", giving them an opportunity to display their talents and giving you the chance to purchase a unique memento of your visit to Aberfeldy.
