Cappamore Show will be held at the Showgrounds in Ballyvoreen, Cappamore on Saturday 18th August.

Runnning since 1954, Cappamore Agricultural Show is one of Ireland’s leading one day shows, and is very highly regarded among exhibitors and regular show supporters throughout the Munster region, and nationally.

Cappamore Show incorporates displays and competitions in areas such as cookery, crafts, agricultural and horticultural produce, and other areas that draw on the traditional skills, arts and crafts of the region, as well as more traditional show sections such as cattle and horse showing, and jumping classes.

Free children's entertainment will also be provided on the day. Bring friends and family along for a great day at the showground, Ballyvoreen, Cappamore.
