Turriff Show, Scotland’s largest two-day agricultural show, has today announced the cancellation of the 2020 event due to current uncertainty in light of the coronavirus pandemic.
“It is with heavy heart that I have to announce the cancellation of the 2020 Turriff Show,” says show President Alan Gaul.
“I’m sure that our decision will not come as a huge surprise given that many other shows scheduled for this summer have already unfortunately been cancelled. We have been monitoring all government guidelines and updates on a daily basis and our decision has not been taken lightly. We are not alone with the decision we’ve had to come to, and we empathise with all other events in the same situation.
“There is so much hard work and dedication that goes in to organising an event like this and for Turriff, the success over the years has been down to the continued support of the local community and businesses and we have no doubt that this will continue in the future.
“I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge all of our key frontline workers including farmers, NHS staff and local businesses who are working around the clock under difficult circumstances to ensure our country stays safe and well. We encourage everyone to stay home, stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you all to the Turriff Show in 2021.”
Turriff Show, is the biggest two-day agricultural show in Scotland, attracting around 24,000 people, including those involved in farming as well as many non-farming people who enjoy the show for its wide array of activities.
300+ exhibitor stands as well as some of the finest food & drink and arts & crafts stands which included producers from within Aberdeenshire and beyond.
The show has been held in the north-east town since 1864 and was originally held on a Tuesday to coincide with the Turriff “mart day”
Today, the show awards over £85,000 in prize money and 330 trophies. The show’s 1,554 classes range from the best cattle, sheep and horses, through to working dogs, poultry and vintage vehicles.
