Ballymoney Show 2016

Originating in 1902, Ballymoney Show, organised by the North Antrim Agricultural Association Ltd, is one of the oldest agricultural shows in Northern Ireland. Although Ballymoney Show is steeped in tradition we have continually reviewed and adapted our annual show to truly reflect and celebrate the diversity which the local countryside has to offer.

This has resulted in a unique 2 day event for all ages, which attracts thousands of people from across the province to activities and events such as:

various local Primary School and Women’s Institute competitions get underway.  Entries for the popular Photographic competition will also be on display.
