Why Your Visit Is Worth It 

Local businesses have the most to win by booking a booth at the Dunster Show, because the show brings in two of the most important groups – farmers and rural communities. It’s a one-day show so the costs of attending are not as high, and you are guaranteed a good boost in sales numbers. People just want to have fun and spend some cash. The statistics are great! 

• 200+ exhibitor stands 

• 5000+ visitors as a whole

Industry Relevance 

The UK has a very long tradition of agricultural shows and the Dunster Show is a perfect example as the very first edition was put together in 1847. It’s tradition to hold the show every third Friday in August and editions only run for a single day. Even so they manage to pack an incredible show program that excites every type of visitor. We’re talking live bands, dog agility shows, food stands, ferret racing and adrenaline-packed motorbike acts. Trade stands cover just about every product type you can imagine. There’s art, ceramics, toys, baskets, leather goods, dried herbs, handmade sweets, pet supplies, cheeses and home care services. The Dunster Show takes over the majestic, green lawns attached to the historic Dunster Castle! 

Who Are You Going to Meet? 

The exhibitor list is quite extensive and you’ll see a good mix of local businesses that vary in size. Visitors can see what’s new with Harpers Feeds, Azur Leather, Bateman Hosegood, Brendon Hill Stoves, CM Trading, Mercedes Benz of Taunton, ARK ATVs, Exmoor National Park Authority and so many more. The audience consists of farmers, animal breeders, equestrians, young farmers and families with children. It’s important to note that the Dunster Show is not about profit. The organisers, the Dunster Show Society, are a registered charity and the show helps raise funds for all kinds of local organisations like Devon Air Ambulance, Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance, West Somerset Training Group, West Group YFC, Exmoor Hill Farming Network and FWAG. 

The Latest News on COVID 

The Dunster Show is about to make a return to the wide, open fields at the heels of Dunster Castle. The agricultural show has been cancelled two times in a row due to the coronavirus pandemic, but now the Dunster Show Society has been given the green light to organise the show in 2022. There are fewer risks now that vaccination levels are higher and organisers are working closely with the local government on robust COVID-19 health and safety measures. As always, the edition will fall on the third Friday of August. In this case, August 19th, 2022! There’s real enthusiasm in the air as the Dunster Show is the major social event for the communities in and around West Somerset.
