We’ve been trying to capture what people love most about the Show and haven’t managed it!
That's because no one single thing makes it special. What does is that it offers an eclectic mix of the expected and unexpected that keeps the thousands who flock here each year coming back year after year.
For those who think it’s just cows and combine harvesters, then what can we say? Be prepared for an experience like no other. We guarantee that if you come you'll be back year after year.
It may surprise you that The Greatest Show on Earth has music, song and dance at every turn. This year we’ve turned up the volume and created bespoke stages so that show goers get to enjoy even more established acts and exciting new talent.
A playground for little ones - the Greatest Show on Earth will build memories for life - a seat on a gigantic tractor, up close to cows, sheep and ponies, yummy food for rumbling tummies and lots of things for little hands to make and do.
From wellies to watches, feather hats to fabulous frocks and a stunning selection of bespoke jewellery, designer knits and country wear, the Greatest Show on Earth has many independent designers showcasing the best in contemporary fashions.
What makes Scotland great is our countryside and the Show brings together the best of lifestyle pursuits, gardening and handcrafts inspired by our natural resources. Watch with amazement at falconry and gun dog and laugh out loud at the chaos that is terrier racing!
Food and drink is where Scotland excels and nowhere else will you find the finest selection then at The Greatest Show on Earth. Indulge in Scotland's larder at The Food Hall and bring some home to share with friends and family. With over almost 100 exhibitors at The Show, you'll find so much to tempt you and with samples aplenty, you’ll find yourself returning for more!
Let’s not forget that The Greatest Show on Earth is also the UK's best agricultural show where real business happens. Each year thousands of pounds worth of business takes place at The Show whether in machinery, livestock or services, The Show contributes millions of pounds to the Scottish economy each year.
