Dalkeith Show is held on the second Saturday of July each year in Dalkeith Country Park, with Dalkeith Palace as an impressive backdrop, giving access to woodland and riverside walks and opportunities to see local wildlife.

A feature of the Show is the huge range of competitions, in categories for cattle, sheep, horses, ponies, dogs, crafts, baking among others.

Around 100 trade and craft stands showcase farm machinery, motor vehicles, furniture, shepherds' crooks, gifts and foodstuffs.

Attractions include a large display of vintage tractors, a children's area (with bouncy castles and slides) and a licensed catering and bar marquee.

Throughout the day, the main ring will be hosting entertainment events.

Something for everyone!

Vintage Tractors


McN 2016 24

Do you have a vintage tractor? Then give consideration to coming to our show next year. You can enter it into being judged against other tractors - though you don't need to if don't want to.  We hold 2 vintage tractor parades in our main ring, so you could participate in this too.  All that we ask is that you get in touch to let us now that you want to come along, so that we can ensure we have enough space to accommodate you!
