Event Date:

From 30th June

Until 2nd July


There’s only one place in Devon where on just three days of the year the county is revealed in all its glory! We’re looking forward to treating our visitors to the best of food, farming and entertainment all in one day.

The Devon County Agricultural Association is delighted to announce that the 2022 Devon County Show will take place on Thursday 30th June, Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd July. The event traditionally runs during the third week of May, but along with other shows was cancelled in 2020 .

In 2021, the Show was delayed to July and was one of the few three-day agricultural shows to go ahead. As a Covid Safe outdoor event, the organisers were delighted at the confidence of the general public and welcomed over 60,000 visitors across the three days.

After much consultation, discussion and reviewing of the likely impact of Covid-19 during the winter and spring, the Council of the DCAA have agreed to schedule the Show at the start of July for a further year to mitigate any further risk posed by the Pandemic. It is anticipated that the Show will return to its usual May dates in 2023.

Show Manager, Sam Mackenzie-Green said: ‘By taking an early decision now rather than next spring we hope this will give our exhibitors and trade stands time to prepare and we look forward to welcoming them to 126th Devon County Show in 2022’.

Family Swoosh

Family Swoosh : Swim, Paddle, Float from Aveton Gifford to Bigbury-on-Sea. Explore 5km of beautifully remote and tranquil River Avon as we swim and paddle from Aveton Gifford to Bigbury-on-Sea. About this event. Find secret beaches or dig for cockles, we’ll drift down the Avon Estuary being swooshed down by the outgoing tide. Even on the wide and epic estuary you can relax knowing our qualified and watchful instructors are close by. We will begin and end at Bigbury-on-Sea where there is a lovely beach. It will be low tide at 12.20pm so the beach will be vast. There is a small cafe that sells food and drink and the Pilchard Inn is a tiny pub on the Island across the sand bar that connects at low tide. Bring a little shovel and spade – We may hunt for cockles & muscles along the way as we are going to the seaside after all. We will most certainly have a camp fire along the way for some scrumptious hot food. Appropriate for ages 3+, they must be able to fit into a buoyancy aid. Buoyancy aids are provided and must be worn at all times during our journey. Each family gets at least 1 craft to paddle/sunbathe on/float next to. Instructors are likely to be wearing wetsuits (always check out the gear any instructor is wearing it is usually the best stuff for the job). Wear hats and long sleeves if it is very sunny. Times: 09:00 – 12:30 BST For more information and to book click here
