Turriff Show makes a welcome return on Sunday, July 31 and Monday, August 1 this year.
Despite the cancellation of the event for two consecutive years due to Covid-19, the Turriff District Agricultural Association (TDAA) has continued to dedicate its time to organising the return of a face-to-face event later this year.
And Show president, Alan Gaul has promised that Scotland’s biggest two-day agricultural show will be back even stronger and will this year host the Highland Cattle National Show drawing exhibitors from across the country.
Mr Gaul, of Little Whiterashes, Turriff, added: “We are delighted to have Bridgend Aggregates come on board as the main sponsor for 2022.
"The local family business has been a great help to TDAA over the years, including assisting with the development of the new Codona’s Funfair hardstanding area in 2019.
“We are also honoured to host the National Highland Cattle Show and are anticipating many livestock entries from the length and breadth of the country.
"It will be a tremendous sight on the Monday afternoon during the grand parade when we see these incredible animals paraded in front of thousands of spectators.”
In 2019, over 24,000 visitors made their way to the show to, where there were 300+ exhibitor stands and the EQ Food and Drink Pavilion, which was launched in 2019 and hosted 50 stands featuring some of the best produce from Aberdeenshire, and beyond.
“What we have missed most about live events is the feeling of coming together for a shared experience – Turriff Show brings with it a huge buzz in the local community allowing people to catch up with friends they might only see once a year,” said Mr Gaul.
“With the last two years in the planning, we are looking forward to what will be a thrilling couple days at the Haughs in 2022, with more exciting announcements to come in due course.”
Helen Paterson, Show Secretary continued: "Turriff Show is a fantastic family day out and one of the key dates in the north-east farming
"Where else can you get up close to livestock, taste the best Scottish food and drink, experience the thrill and entertainment of the Main Ring, and see a large display of the latest tractors and machinery!.”
Early bird e-tickets for the event will be available from Monday, April 25 and TDAA are advising visitors to plan ahead and purchase their tickets early.
