The 2022 Sligo County Agricultural Show takes place on Saturday 16th July in Riverstown Community Park. This annual event, celebrating rural living and our agricultural heritage, has been held in Riverstown since 1994! The County Show had previously been held in Sligo Town, for over 90 years, and since 1994 the community of Riverstown have continued to grow our County Show. The voluntary team of Sligo County Agricultural Show have been busy bees working towards ensuring our 2022 celebration of rural living is a very special one, especially as Shows did not go ahead in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic. But we are back with a bang this year for sure!! Our Show is an opportunity for farmers and families from the region to showcase their animals, homegrown vegetables, home baking and craft and it’s a great day out for both competitors and visitors alike. Animal Classes include Horse, Pony, Sheep, Cattle, Poultry, Dog and Cat. For the third time the Connacht Gold Kitchen will host a Chef passionate about food and sharing easy to remember cooking tips, using Connacht Gold ingredients. We are very grateful to Aurivo for their kind sponsorship of our Show. This Aurivo marquee will complement the Home Industries and Home Crafts Sections of the Show, and our ‘Afternoon Tea Tray for Two’ is sure to inspire visitors. Other sections include Bonny Baby, Little Miss Riverstown, Little Master Riverstown, Glamorous Granny, Greatest Grandad, Best Dressed Lady and Dashing Dude. Children can also participate in all the Children’s Art, Photography and Baking sections, as well as our new LEGO section launched at our last Show. As well as free entry to the Show, children can enjoy free faceprinting and each child will receive a ticket to enjoy a free pony ride, thanks to Lough Bo Equestrian Centre – please note these free pony rides are from 2pm. Watch the Dogs Agility Demonstration from the Sligo Dogs Agility Club and if you fancy yourself as the Sligo County Champion Turf Footer then come join in our fun competition. Pat’s Country Roadshow will entertain us on the day with his music, and we are delighted to announce this years visitors will be entertained by a Magician who will visit all areas of our Show engaging with visitors and volunteers alike, and will also perform in the Connacht Gold Tent. South Sligo Energy Partnership will be there to talk about new Government funding available to make our homes more energy efficient,...
