The Cornish Winter Fair

Saturday 18th & Sunday 19th November 2023

Saturday 10am - 5pm

Sunday 10am - 4pm

Royal Cornwall Events Centre, Wadebridge, PL27 7JE

Come and celebrate all that's great about Cornish farming and food at The Cornish Winter Fair on Saturday 18th & Sunday 19th November 2023.

The Cornish Winter Fair is run across 2 days, with the Wadebridge Prime Stock Show taking place on the Saturday and our Winter Market open across both days. 

It's a free event, held entirely under cover here within the Exhibition Halls at the Royal Cornwall Events Centre, Wadebridge. There's plenty of free parking on site. 

There will be plenty of farm animals that you can get up close to and visit the food and farming educational discovery zone where you can learn more about local agriculture and food production. There will be an opportunity to 'Have a Go' at things like milking a (mock!) cow. It'll be great fun for all of the family.

It's a great place to kick off your Christmas shopping, with an array of Cornish food and drink producers on hand to show you how they create their quality products, and a chance to try and buy their delicacies. There will also be craft stalls selling fantastic locally created gifts, and local quality catering concessions selling an array of food and drink as well.

Wadebridge Prime Stock Show

Taking place on Saturday only, the Wadebridge Prime Stock Show, which has been running for more than 140 years, is all about competitions. The packed prize schedule includes cattle and sheep showing, produce, craft and cookery classes. There are competitive classes for children, local schools, WI and Young Farmers' Clubs.

Why not get involved and enter a class or two this year. Could you be crowned Cornwall's best baker or grow the biggest potato?  Who'll be taking home the silverware this year?
