The Royal Welsh Winter Fair will host over 200 livestock classes, special awards and championships, all listed in the 2016 schedule, with exhibitors expecting to enter from far and wide, all competing for their share of over £25,000 of total prize money up for grabs during the two-day event.
Along with the ever-popular livestock classes, the fair also hosts competitions for hounds, homecrafts (cookery, produce and handicrafts), poultry, floral art and horticulture, lamb carcasses, dressed poultry, meat products… there is something for everyone to get involved in.
First staged in 1990, the Winter Fair is now firmly established as one of the most popular attractions on the British agricultural show calendar. Leading stockmen from all over the UK compete for the top accolades in the competitions running throughout the two-day event.
Away from the judging rings the very best of Welsh food producers will be showcasing their produce and Christmas shoppers can explore the hundreds of tradestands, demonstrations and exhibitions and festive atmosphere.
