Pembrokeshire County Show 2016

By Kathryn Slade Pembs Show

Next week sees the start of the annual Pembrokeshire County Show held in Haverfordwest.

The Pembrokeshire County Show is Wales' largest local show, attracting over 90,000 visitors over the 3 days that it is on. For those interested in animals and agriculture there is everything you could wish for!

Why not watch the horses and cattle being shown in the rings, or you can watch the dog agility performances.

With over 400 trade stands, a great food hall with cooking demonstrations and lots of samples to taste, it’s a full and fun day out. There are plenty of activities for children to enjoy and a free family play area as well as the draw of the animals too!

If it has been raining then wellies are advisable as the showground can get a little bit mucky but there will be some great puddle jumping opportunities and it takes a lot to dampen a Pembrokeshire Party.

The roads around Haverfordwest can get a little busy during show week but there is a shuttle bus that runs from Haverfordwest Bus Station. Parking is ample and free if you do want to drive and it’s well signposted on the way to the showground.
