The Royal Welsh Agricultural Society has played a leading role in the development of agriculture and the rural economy in Wales for over a century, since its formation in 1904.
Today our work includes providing support for business, social welfare and education in rural communities, and the organisation and staging of our ever-popular society events; the Smallholding and Countryside Festival, the Royal Welsh Show and the Winter Fair.
The Smallholding and Countryside Festival is a weekend-long event, with smallholders and those who have a love of the outdoors at its heart.
With an emphasis on celebrating smallholding and rural life, the festival will be packed full of interesting things to see, delicious food and drink, live music, country sports, shopping, demonstrations, fun, educational activities and many different types of livestock, horses and other animals taking part in a busy two-day schedule of competitions and displays.
This year the Smallholding & Countryside Festival will be held on 16 & 17 May 2020.
With a weekend packed full of competitions, attractions, displays, activities, live music and shopping... there is plenty to see and do at the Smallholding and Countryside Festival. Check out the daily programme of events and details of of main attractions here:
