Visitors to the area can enjoy fun for all the family at the annual agricultural Ballymoney Show.
Ballymoney Show is a local agricultural show providing 2 days of entertainment for the whole family. We aim to attract visitors, from both the local farming area, the local town and also visitors from the rest of the province, the Republic of Ireland and mainland Great Britain.
Ballymoney Show is held in the local showgrounds, which are owned by the North Antrim Agricultural Association.
Ballymoney Show offers something for everyone, no matter what age you are, townspeople or country people, both outdoor and indoor – from livestock judging including cattle, sheep, goats, poultry, horse and pony judging to food tents with cookery demonstrations and celebrity chefs; from agricultural products, artisan foods to local crafts as well as entertainment in the form of music, football competitions and tug of war. Not to forget the bonny baby competition, home industries and schools exhibits and an exciting dog show.
Ballymoney Show has built a strong sense of community for over 100 years (since 1907). We pride ourselves in the strong young farmers’ involvement with the show – involving 3 local clubs – Finvoy, Kilraughts and Moycraig. The members of these clubs unite to do all the preparation and planning – and this gives them many opportunities to team build. We also involve local traders to exhibit and sponsor our show, which gives them an additional advertising space for their products, and therefore extra sales.
