Regrettably, the 2021 show has been cancelled. There is much uncertainty about what events will and won't be allowed in the coming months, but we appreciate that for many people attending the show involves a lot of advanced preparation, and people need to be able to make some plans.
Instead, we plan to have a Stock Judging Event on show day, 26th August. More details will be posted here closer to the time.
Lochaber's annual agricultural/horse/food/craft show is held beneath the spectacular backdrop of Ben Nevis at Inverlochy Castle Farm, Happy Valley, by kind permission of Ewen Campbell. Please look at our location page for details of how to get to the show.
The show attracts around 1500 locals and visitors and is a celebration of what rural Lochaber has to offer. Entry is £8 for adults and £6 for concessions. Thanks to the generosity of our local sponsors all school children will have free entry this year.

The Handicraft Section has lots of different categories from baking and jams to knitting, photography and vegetables - there's something for everyone and you can enter as many categories as you like once you have paid your show entry fee.
Craft & Food Tent
In the Craft & Food Tent there will be a number of caterers selling food to eat on the day, as well as stalls selling local produce and crafts.
All sorts of activities, fun and games go in the Childrens Tent
Various trade, craft, food and charity stands will be around the show field and in the food / craft tent.
The show is organised by the Lochaber Agricultural Society, a committed and dedicated team who give up a lot of free time to make the show a success. We also have many other volunteers who help on show day.
Safety with farm animals:
We hope that everybody will have a fun and safe day. To ensure that you do, please have a look here for current government advice on the risks of infection from contact with animals.
