Enjoy the livestock judging, or visit the famous flower tent with wonderful floral displays. The show offers a full programme of entertainment over the three days and featuring an equestrian ring and show jumping. There is also a major dog show, a traditional steam fair, plenty of agricultural machinery, a motor fair, crafts, health and beauty…. and as if that is not enough, Royal Cornwall is also home to the Cornwall Festival of Dance, !
