Show Launch

This year's show is jam-packed with great attractions and events. There's something for everyone!

Joseph's camel

Following the 2017 show, a consultation process has been on-going, appealing to internal and external stakeholders for their feedback and suggestions. The Society, led by Chief Executive Jan Pearce, has worked to improve, expand and innovate the three-day county show into a unique summer event.

Organisers are formulating a varied and packed programme, with a revised showground layout. The emphasis of the show has always been on agriculture, farming and food while connecting with the rural community and this will be core for 2018.

Some of the headline attractions for 2018 will be to meet Joseph's Amazing Camels, and watch or compete in a fantastic Irish sheaf throwing competition throughout the three days. There are a number of other attractions and displays, including robotic milking of cows and the feeding of calves, the new-look Valero Countryside Park, farrier demonstrations, classic car displays, a vast array of agricultural machinery and equipment, a skateboarding area, and indoor go-karting.

As ever the animals will be taking centre stage in the rings as they go head-to-head for the top honours. From cattle, pigs, goats and horses to poultry, dog agility competitions and the dog show, visitors will be able to see some of the country's finest exhibits. Sheep exhibitors will now have their own dedicated area.

The entire show will be live and entertaining, culminating in a spectacular grand parade.

The YFC will have their own dedicated area to hold tournaments, competitions and display exhibition work.

Another first, the Pembrokeshire Little Farmers' marquee, will host educational competitions.

As part of the revised plan there will be a new shopping mall and a higher number of trade stands. The Castell Howell Food Hall finds a new home on the main avenue. There will also be a new main arena viewing gallery with bar, accessed from main avenue, and there will be a Stockman's Bar adjacent to the livestock housing compound.

Also new for this year will be reduced rates for entry after 4pm. No-one will need to go home early as the live stage will provide entertainment until 8.30pm.

And of course, lots of perennial family favourites, like the free play zone, will return for 2018.

The show will be held from August 14-16.
