Our 2017 Sligo County Agricultural Show will take place on Saturday 15th July in Riverstown Community Park. Come join us for this very special annual event that has been taking place in Riverstown since 1994 following the closure of the County Show at the Showgrounds in Sligo Town.
The voluntary team of Sligo County Agricultural Show have organised lots to entertain you on the day. Classes include Horse & Pony, Sheep, Cattle, Poultry, Dog, Cat, Home Industries and Home Crafts as well as Bonny Baby, Little Miss Riverstown, Little Master Riverstown, Glamorous Granny, Best & Most Appropriately Dressed Lady, novelty events including turf cutting and Obstacle Course, as well as Vintage cars from the North West Vintage & Heritage Club. Farmyard in Your Schoolyard will be travelling from Galway to join us and the RSA Shuttle Bus and Rollover will join us from Mayo. Mairead McGuinness MEP will officially open the event at 1.30, Damian Kelly will be treating us all to music from his new album from 1pm onwards, and Bróga Bríomhar dancers will be dazzling the crowd at 3pm. The biggest dog in Ireland will be there too, Obi, and as Obi’s owner Jo from Lough Bo Boarding Kennels said “The Sligo County Agricultural Show is the best Show I have ever been to, Obi and I will definitely be attending”. So come join us for a great day.
A very special word of thanks to all the volunteers who work so hard in the run up to, on the day itself and after each annual Show. Their dedication for the last 23 years is much appreciated by the local and wider community.
