Kent County Show

Only 38 day & 22 hours 'til showtime

The 2018 Show

The 2018 Show will be held on Friday 6, Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 July and has something for the whole family.  Open from 8am to 6pm every day, the Show is a wonderful day out with plenty of displays, entertainment and local food.  With over 400 exhibitors and trade stands and over 300 competitions, activities and displays.

For those who have never attended the Show before, the Kent County Show is a showcase event for farming, countryside and rural life.  The three day event brings together the very best of Kent with animals and food, fun and excitement and above all a sense of what ’The Garden of England’ has to offer.

Following the incredible success of the 2017 Show, 2018 will be an exciting year for all aspects of the Show. Visitors will experience a more hands on Show with better access to the cattle marquee, shire stables on site, flower and woodland craft workshops, cookery demonstrations, more live music and the Food and Farming education area. We are delighted to announce that the main ring attraction for 2018 will be the Household Cavalry Musical Ride. Their performance will demonstrate the rigorous training, precision and excellence of the world’s only combat serving mounted ceremonial soldiers and can be enjoyed on all three days of the Show.

Once again we would like to thank all our exhibitors, competitors and visitors who attended the Kent County Show 2017. We had just over 80,000 visitors over the three days who were able to enjoy a vast range of entertainment, competitions, retail and networking opportunities. We would also like to thank our wonderful volunteers, without them we wouldn’t be able to run the Show.
