17th to 19th May 2018
Devon County Show 2018; ready for the biggest event on the Devon calendar?
Who's ready for Devon's biggest day out? That's how the Devon County Show advertises itself via its website, and we think they're right.
The 2018 show programme highlights just how much is lined up throughout the three days. From the competitions starting at 7.30 am on the 17th to the City of Exeter Band and Pipes at the close on the 19th May, there really will be something for everyone on offer.
Staged at Westpoint in Exeter, be ready to experience a giant celebration of country life and Devon produce through country competitions, local food and drink, traditional entertainment and masses of crafts.
Originally a farming show, the event has grown into so much more.
It's still an agricultural show with farming in its heart, where everyone can come to discuss livestock, see the latest in farm machinery and equipment and share everything else that makes up life on a farm.
But then on top of that are so many more layers. Food and drink make up a big part of the day, as Devon farmers, shops and factories come to sell their delicious local produce.
Craft stalls are a chance for Devon individuals or small companies to sell their goods. Plus the family-focused fun and games keep everyone amused.
The shows and competitions are always worth seeing, along with the many other displays and demonstrations, from classic cars to exciting bike jumps.
Whatever it is you love about Devon, you'll find it at The Devon County Show. Get your tickets online to avoid the queues.
Brend Hotels, a family of South West hotels that includes The Devon Hotel, will have two stands near the food tent and will be offering an exclusive discount on bookings made that weekend.
If you'll be attending make sure you find the Brend group to get reduced rooms for your next stay with us.
Exeter centre gets busy with visitors over the Devon County Show weekend, as it's the closest city and a popular place to visit.
Instead of booking accommodation in the busy heart of Exeter, stay outside the centre with our rooms. We're not far from the Westpoint showground, in a quiet spot outside the city but with easy access to the main roads.
