The Balmoral Show

Northern Ireland’s premier agricultural show

Over 70 000 visitors a year come to Balmoral in south Belfast for Northern Ireland’s premier agricultural show.

As the largest event of its type in Ireland, the Balmoral Show will entertain the whole family. The 2006 Show will take place on May 10 – 12, open daily from 9.30am – 8pm at Balmoral Showgrounds.

The Kangaroo Kid will be the key attraction in the Main Arena, where International Show Jumping and Falconry displays will also take place.

There will be over 370 trade stands spread throughout the Showgrounds, offering visitors a wide range of products from leather goods and organic food, to holidays and leisure products, to farm equipment, heavy machinery and 4x4 vehicles. 

Livestock competitions are always a firm favourite of the show. The best horses, ponies, cattle, sheep, poultry, pig and goats will compete for the honour of winning at Balmoral.

Other attractions at the 2006 event will include a garden village, sheep shearing, dog agility competitions, a children’s farm, a craft village, a band stand, Northern Ireland dressage, a best dressed competition and lots more.
