Galloway Country Fair on Saturday 18th - Sunday 19th August 2018

The biggest event in Dumfriesshire’s rural calendar – Galloway Country Fair – returns to the picturesque surroundings of Drumlanrig Caste and Country Estate again this summer.

Showcasing the best of country pursuits, local craftsmanship, artisan food and drink as well as show-stopping entertainment, it is a not-to-be-missed celebration of rural life.

Confirmed acts for 2018 so far include the comical Sheep Show, gundog displays from John Halstead and a scurry provided by Galloway Gundogs, terrier racing and the Dog and Duck Show.

Premier equine and canine stunt team Les amis d’onno has been announced as the headline entertainment. Crowds can witness breath-taking and death defying horseback tricks from the stunt team that have featured in popular TV drama Outlander.

The free children’s activity zone featuring horse rides on the Blackstone Clydesdales, bouncy castles and archery from Team Challenge and Puppet Lab’s Forest Creatures Show will all be back by popular demand for this year.

With hundreds of stalls to browse showcasing the very best of local produce, crafts, homeware and outdoor sports attire, visitors will be spoiled for choice.

West Sound Cash for Kids has been named as the official charity partner for Galloway Country Fair 2018, adding to the entertainment bill and raising a great sum for the charity.
