The Border Union Show is the highlight of the event and agricultural calendar for the Scottish Borders and Northumberland. The Annual Show is held on the last Friday and Saturday of July on the outskirts of the pretty cobbled town of Kelso. The event will be held on the 29th and 30th July 2022.
The show is a traditional farming show with over 500 open competitions for horses, livestock and industrial arts. With over 175 trade stands for everything you could imagine from tractors and farm supplies to clothing and food outlets. Our fantastic Food Fair welcomes producers from all over Scotland and beyond. The Craft & Gift Marquee is a treasure trove of unique and special gifts.
There are various bits of entertainment for children including the fun fair which is the ideal place for the kids to blow off steam. There are catering outlets with tempting treats including crepes and the ever popular fish and chips. Of course, it wouldn’t be a good agricultural show without a bar or two. The Main Ring entertainment is always a huge draw – in 2019, we welcomed two of the largest Monster Trucks in the world! We’re currently finalising plans for 2022 and we look forward to making announcements shortly.
