In the same breadth, the show invests heavily in the agricultural education of the following generations with youths as young as 10 years up to 26 years have classes and competitions of their own. However, the biggest portion of the visitors happen to be families with children who want to see some live entertainment, sit on the green and enjoy great local food.
