The Society

The Nairnshire Farming Society was formed in 1798 and organises the annual Nairn Show which is the highlight of the Society calendar. It is one of Nairn's major annual events and is a popular attraction for local residents, those from surrounding districts and tourists alike. 

Held on the last Saturday in July between 9am - 5pm (bar open 11am - 1am). Nairn Show features a wide range of trade stands on the field along with popular and well-supported livestock competitions with cattle, sheep and horse sections.


Browse the marquees to view the produce, baking and handicrafts entries, wine, horticulture, floral art, honey, SWI and the increasingly popular children's section are all open to all with cash prizes and healthy competition. 


The main ring features a range of entertainment during the day from the local Word Champion Galcantray Clydsdales, Nairn Pipe Band and annual visitor attractions to put on a show for the Nairn Show public. Vintage tractors from across the North of Scotland also feature at Nairn Show with a parade around the main ring during the day.

The annual marquee dance follows from the Show, when the gates shut at 5pm migrate to the bar and keep the good times coming with live music, a quick bar and great craic til 1am.
