Pembrokeshire County Show the biggest yet

Written by Powells Holiday Team on

The annual Pembrokeshire County Show is already hailed as one of Wales’ largest summer events, but with over 100,000 visitors expected across the three-day event, 2014 is set to be bigger and better than ever before. Taking place over the 19th, 20th and 21st August, this immense show of Welsh local produce is second in size only to the Royal Welsh agricultural festival.

Summer Pembrokeshire cottages have been booked up months in advance as people from all over the country come to see this reputable show. From fantastic entertainment to show jumping and the very best beef cattle, the entire show is a buzz of activity that sees visitors return year after year.

The largest agricultural county show in Wales

This year will see new attractions, improved activity zones, the return of the Fairground – which is perfect for families coming along – and, of course, numerous classes of livestock and horses, proving that the show is yet to rest on its laurels as it improves in size and activity every year. With something for everyone, County Shows have been a firm favourite with both local and visiting families. Children can enjoy the many shows on display, including this year’s Cage Bird Show, whilst parents can enjoy sampling local produce and browsing the some 500 trade stands.

While most county shows around the country boast similar events, The Pembrokeshire County Show goes above and beyond, particularly this year with a headlining performance from the Imps Motorcycle Team. Showing off their impressive skills with jumps and high speed tricks, they are a must see for visitors of any age.
Based in Haverfordwest, The Pembrokeshire County Show is in close proximity to Saundersfoot and Tenby coastal cottages, making it popular with families on holiday during the summer break in Pembrokeshire.
