Fife Show 2024

May sees the return of one of the most popular events of the year when the Fife Show is held in Cupar. Show organisers invite all to Kinloss on Saturday 18th May – and they highlight the equine theme that will be a real focus at the 2024 event.

Visitors will be able to watch showing classes for horses, cattle and sheep – and then “see the horses in action” in “ridden, driven and jumping classes.” In addition to the Gogar Services Driven Heavy Horse of the Year Championship qualifier that was held last year, Fife Show has been invited to hold a qualifier for the Barber Family British Ridden Heavy Horse of the Year Championship in 2024. Royal Highland Show qualifiers will again be held in the Showjumping Ring, with classes held over both Saturday and Sunday – the Sunday for showjumping only.

Family Friendly …

The Show is very much a family event with plenty for kids to do and see.

  • The Kids Countryside tent has stands hosted by local groups, all with activities for families to take part in at the Show
  • Storytelling sessions throughout the day
  • Cool Creatures such as lizards and snakes.
  • Rare Breed animals and alpacas.
  • Youngsters can become Fife Show Explorers, following the Showground Trail, finding out about food, farming & agriculture and answering a quiz along the way.
  • The scarecrow competition for Primary Schools and Home Produce section (with classes for Under 9yrs and Under 15yrs as well as adults) are also great ways for local children to become involved.

Farming first …

Fife Show is a great day out for all the family but is still, first and foremost, a traditional agricultural Show with RHASS Long Service Medals for workers in the agricultural & rural sector with over 30yrs employment presented in the Main Ring.
