Moreton Show is held at Moreton-in-Marsh and is a traditional one-day Agricultural and Horse Show full of family fun. It is held on the first Saturday in September each year and is among the most popular agricultural shows in the UK. Each year it attracts over 20,000 visitors to the event.
Set on a 165-acre site just a few miles off of the A4027, the Moreton Show will feature parades, classes, traders, and of course, animals.
The Moreton Show is one of the most successful one-day agricultural and farming events shows in the country, placing emphasis on the finest in British agriculture, equestrian sporting events, and rural life.
The show not only bestows awards on the best of British countryside but also some of the best local businesses that strive on the Cotswolds. The Main Avenues and Food Courts are full to the brim with local producers, from locally sourced Hereford beef to beautifully crafted woollen rugs using reused clothing, so no products are more difficult to find here.

Apart from the fun activities, lively showgrounds and exhibits at Moreton Show, there are also many great deals for shoppers, from combines to cashmere sweaters, tweed jackets to tractors and a whole lot more!
We will be updating this section regarding Moreton Show 2023 in due course when we know more.
Background to the Moreton Show
Moreton Show was originally held in 1949 and has been held in the same location ever since. Its purpose is to boost the quality of farming and farm crafts locally.
A traditional one-day show and the main agricultural event in Gloucestershire, held at the extreme north of the County’s Cotswolds on the first Saturday in September each year. A true country show from the heart of the Cotswolds.
As soon as you begin exploring the show you realise there is more to this showcase than you initially imagined. The site incorporates old permanent pastures in the park. There are no permanent show buildings, so the Show is built up in an old-fashioned manner by marquees and hurdle pens, giving it the sensation of a traditional country show.
Competitions are held for horses, ponies, cattle [such as the National Show of Poll Hereford cattle], sheep [such as the National Show of Cotswold Sheep], goats, poultry, dogs, home crafts, flowers, vegetables and even scarecrows. Around 250 vending stalls offer everything from a tractor to a toy and a wide range of food and drink – to eat on-site and to bring along.
