Industry Relevance 

The Balmoral Show has a long history and deep meaning for Northern Ireland, because it began in the 1850s and has only grown since. Most of the new technology and innovations in farming and agriculture were first introduced here in the country. Today the show is still an important place for local businesses to showcase their products to a wider audience. The Shopping Village has no particular theme and visitors can discover just about everything – food and beverages, preserves, delicatessen, artisanal goods, domestic goods, fashion, art and decoration, gardening tools and even construction materials. Of course, farmers are able to enjoy the full spectrum of machinery and equipment available. Today, the Balmoral Show is an excellent trip for the whole family. The event has everything from a fun fair and live bands to sheep shearing.

Who Are You Going to Meet? 

The Balmoral Show has a broad appeal. You have families with kids out and about during the end of the week, travelers from all over the country on vacation and farmers. One of the big draws is the Young Farmer’s Day with a lot of programming for the next generation of farmers. Of course, we can’t forget the livestock competitions. There’s everything from pedigree horses, ponies, cattle and sheep to poultry, pigs and goats. Exhibitors include names like Moore Concrete, Cookstown Dairy Services, LMC, Sleator Plant, Ulster Aviation Society, Dundarave Estate, Hinch Distillery and Gibson Paving. An interesting fact is that people can also sign up for live feeds of the major competitions. 

The Latest News on COVID 

May 11th – May 14th, 2022 are the official dates for Balmoral Show 2022 and mark the return of the agriculture show to its traditional slot in spring. The Royal Ulster Agricultural Society works in tandem with the government on COVID-19 health and safety protocols. A lot of progress has been made in vaccination and prevention, so Balmoral Park will employ everything from first-rate sanitation to social distancing and health screening. The success of Balmoral Show 2021 held in September shows just how enthusiastic the public is about going out. Trade shows and exhibitions are still the main driving force behind business growth and sales.
