Dalkeith Show has been run annually in Midothian, since 1805, by the Dalkeith Agricultural Society.

We aim to bring together the farming and non-farming communities in Midlothian and the surrounding area, to show what we have to offer. It is welcoming, friendly, and makes a fun-packed family day out.

In 2017, the show takes place at Dalkeith Country Park. Please browse the website to learn about what will be happening on Saturday 8th July 2017 – we hope to see you there.

Vintage Tractors

 

McN 2016 24

Do you have a vintage tractor? Then give consideration to coming to our show next year. You can enter it into being judged against other tractors - though you don't need to if don't want to.  We hold 2 vintage tractor parades in our main ring, so you could participate in this too.  All that we ask is that you get in touch to let us now that you want to come along, so that we can ensure we have enough space to accommodate you!

2016 Show

On behalf of Dalkeith Agricultural Society, I would like to say "thank you" to all the sponsors, exhibitors, judges, stewards, agricultural trade stands, general trade stands, craft stands, suppliers and last but not least to the people that came through the gates and visited our Show. Without any of your our Annual Show would not have been the success that it was. Though we were not blessed with a bright sunny day but a warm day with a few light showers.

Now to start working on the Show for 2017!
