Bathurst Show 2015
Eastern Cape Events
The Bathurst Show takes place on the 27th March to the 29th March 2015 at Bathurst in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. The annual Bathurst Show is held over three days and attracts large crowds who come to see the huge variety of stalls selling food, arts and craft and exhibitors from the farming trade. The show is a celebration of everything agricultural with lots of things to see and do for all the family. Bathurst is located just off the main N2 route between East London and Port Elizabeth close to Port Alfred. Close by you will find plenty of Guest House Accommodation and Self Catering Accommodation where you can stay and enjoy a lovely weekend break.
We visited the Bathurst Show a couple of years ago and details of our visit can be found here on our Bathurst Show blog. The Bathurst Show is put together by the Bathurst Agricultural Society which is a non-profit making organisation supporting the agricultural industry and is a great place for fellow business workers to get together and exchange ideas and forge partnerships. Over the three days there are a series of competitions in a variety of fields such as Horses, Cattle, Small Stock, Art, Photography and Baking to name but just a few. Prizes and trophies are awarded to the winners in each section.
Equestrian events will be taking place including Show Jumping and an Equitation section, Dressage, Barrel Racing and a six-bar competition. Come and enjoy the Vintage Tractor Show at the Bathurst Agricultural Museum. The Bathurst Primary School will be showcasing how to survive on a vegetable patch the size of door frame as part of their school project.
The Garden and Home section of the show includes crafted furniture and unique pieces created by Rolf Bryant Designs who uses reclaimed wood to create some real masterpieces.
Delicious food will be on offer from the likes of Bathurst Butchery. Sample some scrumptious burgers, healthy rolls, curry and rice and lots more. The large flea markets also feature numerous arts and crafts creations from local artists.
