Set in the grounds of the stunning Drumlanrig Castle in Dumfries and Galloway, the Country Fair is a fantastic weekend of entertainment including food, drink, country sports and family friendly activities.  You’ll find crafts, locally sourced produce and a main arena full of entertainment from Horse Whisperer Grant Bazin to gundog displays and a lamb national sheep race!

There will also be cooking demonstrations thanks to Cook School Scotland and a Bake Off Tent with home-baking competitions for adults and children. Plus, there’s an even bigger kids Fun Zone this year with activities from a giant assault course to face painting, mini quad bikes, archery, lazertag and more. And whether you’re a seasoned pro at country sports, or a complete novice, we have taster sessions and competitions for fishing, clay shooting and a 4×4 experience.

There will be lots of opportunities to show your support to Poppyscotland too so please come and join us for what is guaranteed to be a fabulous family weekend!
