The Royal Cornwall Show 2013 offers a range of entertainments
and activities, from the traditional Rare Breeds, Livestock
Displays, Cornish crafts and Show Jumping to a Flower Show, Motor
Fair, Steam Fair, and Music and Dance shows. In addition you'll
have a chance to see some famous dancing sheep and duck-herding
Special events in 2013 include the Adrenaline Tour, an "awesome quad and motorcycle stunt show' and a three-day polo spectacular in the main ring, whch will bring international players and ponies to Cornwall. The Devil's Horsemen will provide a spectacular demonstration of horsemanship.
Each year the Royal Cornwall Agricultural Association runs a competition for the exhibition of implements, machinery and appliances, which can be used by the Cornish farming community.
Entertainment - bands, displays, bird of prey demonstrations - will keep even the youngest visitors happy. There are also ample opportunities to browse in hundreds of trade stands, as well as sample Cornish food and drink. A perennial favourite is the traditional Cornish pasty stall in the food and farming marquee.
The Royal Cornwall Showground is modern and well appointed, and is easily accessible by car, as it is just off the A30 (Bodmin to Truro).
