The Agricultural Show is held annually on Ash Wednesday - Wednesday 22nd February 2023.
NEWS! The Countess of Wessex will attend the Agriculture Show and will formally open the show by ringing the cow bell before taking a tour, accompanied by the Hon. Premier. The Agricultural Show will be an opportunity for Her Royal Highness The Countess of Wessex to talk to people from different districts and learn more about Caymanian culture.
Early Caymanians supplemented the sea’s bounty by subsistence farming or backyard farming. While subsistence, and organic farming in particular, have experienced a resurgence, the Department of Agriculture, in conjunction with the Agricultural Society, have been running the Agriculture Show for over 50 years.
The show is a widely anticipated annual family event and provides farmers with an opportunity to sell their home-grown produce and display their livestock.
In addition to the wide selection of local produce and authentic food which is available for sale, there are also lots of handmade crafts for sale, and children can participate in the many kid-friendly activities such as games, pageants, horseback riding and the petting zoo.
Now in its 54th year, the Agricultural Show is a testament to the love that the people of these Islands have for farming and looking after their land.
Highlights of the show include:
- Meeting Local Farmers - Meet and talk to local farmers who will tell you all about how they grow their produce. You can also buy the delicious fruits and vegetables. Children will enjoy pony rides as well as meeting the cows, goats, chickens and other livestock.
- Music & Entertainment - Listen to local music, get your face painted, try the mechanical bull and watch local craft demonstrations.
- Try Delicious Local Food - Widen your culinary horizon by trying out wonderful local dishes.
Tip: go early avoid the heat and the traffic.
