Picton's Country Fair

Great Fun for all the Family - Including the family pooch!

Details

Come along to our annual Country Fair and celebrate the countryside in a fun-filled weekend for all the family – including your family pooch! This amazing event is now a firm favourite in our calendar. With lots of things to see and do there is something for everyone: from our Dog Shows, and Dog Agility to Target Archery. There’s so much more to see and do – not to mention our wonderful food, produce and craft stalls, a Beer Tent and Village Cream Teas!

With their origins in medieval times, these old-fashioned fairs would be a meeting place for traders to congregate. Before the advent of ‘proper’ roads and the mobile phone, scattered communities came together to share farming know-how, flirt behind the haystacks and possibly find some work for the coming year. Access and communication may be easier now but, thankfully, the country fair has retained its place in many rural societies. The machinery and methods of farming may have changed, but the heart and soul behind these events remains. Whether they are little village affairs or massive county gatherings, a country fair has the ability to give us a glimpse of another world, another era, and take us back to childhood holidays.

Originally held mid-week, country fairs are now largely held over weekends so that everyone can enjoy pursuits once everyday stuff to country folk, yet splendidly alien to many of us. Picton Castle and Gardens has embraced the old with the new, heralding this great British tradition as an annual event within the boundaries of its 40 acres and the glorious backdrop of the Castle.

If you’re bringing along your family pooch, there’s an opportunity for them to strut their stuff in the novelty and pedigree dog show classes. The only place to head after such energetic participation is our Courtyard Restaurant – Maria @ Picton – where an indulgence of fine food will round off the experience – and then there are the Village Cream Teas…the Beer Tent….
