Kent County Show Family Events


The Kent County Show brings together the best of Kent and will feature the Household Cavalry's Musical Ride as the 2018 main ring attraction

The three day show brings together the very best of Kent with animals, food, fun and excitement, giving a true feel of what ’The Garden of England’ has to offer. This year’s main ring attraction will be the Household Cavalry and their spectacular Musical Ride.

Experience the multiple Food Halls, Countryside area, Flower Show, show jumping, vintage vehicles and hundreds of cattle, sheep and goats. Meet the exhibitors, hear about their love for their vintage vehicle, observe the stockman caring for their animals and watch the dancing sheep, birds of prey and pole climbing. If you prefer, sit back and listen to a variety of live music, judge the floral art competition, see the skill of the farriers or watch the Kent Spitfire flying overhead.

At the 2018 Kent County Show, the opportunities for entertainment are endless.
