Kinross Show is held on the 2nd Saturday in August every year. It is a big event for the farming community and a great family day out for the local and surrounding communities. Kinross Show is run by Kinross-shire Agricultural Society, which was formed and ran it’s first show in 1830.
Children’s Education Tent
The Children’s Education Tent was launched in 2016 and is a unique collaboration that enables children and visitors of all ages to get closer to farm animals and learn about farming in Kinross-shire. Farmer Dawes and his family are the driving force behind the success of the area bringing many years of experience running Open Farm Sunday events on their farm. The animals in the tent change each year so returning visitors are always sure to meet a new breed. From exotic hens to runner ducks, pygmy goats to alpacas they have all been on show throughout Kinross Show over the last few years. The family along with a band of enthusiastic volunteers aims to showcase many of the skills involved in agriculture and highlight the connections between farming and food.
The tent is fortunate to work closely with The Royal Highland Education Trust (RHET). It’s a biannual arrangement that sees the Perth and Kinross facilitator host a further array of fun and educational activities.
The Entertainment Stage at Kinross Show provides an opportunity for entertainers of all ages to perform on stage in the newly created entertainment area of Kinross Show. It’s an opportunity to showcase local talents and applications are invited from groups as well as individuals who wish to sing, dance or entertain the crowds.
Making a thrilling debut in 2018 the diverse line up included the Loch Leven Ukele Group, fantastic routines from Dance Connect and Matthew Dance Academy. The Scottish Women’s Institute Choir and a trio of local boys on the bagpipes attracted huge crowds. As a member of the audience commented “It’s not every day you get to enjoy such rousing Scottish music in the sun on the banks of Loch Leven, topped off with Benarty Hill in the background.”
