The Cornish Winter Fair is an annual celebration of farming and food in Cornwall. Taking place across two days, the Wadebridge Prime Stock Show takes place on Saturday only, whereas, the Winter Market spans both days. It’s an event perfect for the family, with over 150 trade stands covering food, drink, crafts, and much more. There is also a educational discovery zone and meet animals at our rare breeds exhibit, as well as a Santa’s Grotto!

Parking and entry is FREE – So a perfect place to start off the some Christmas shopping!

Dogs – The event is very busy and held primarily indoors, and is therefore not an appropriate environment for dogs.
Wadebridge Prime Stock Show
Taking place on Saturday only, the Wadebridge Prime Stock Show, which has been running for nearly 150 years, is all about competition.
The prize schedule includes classes for cattle, sheep, produce, craft and cookery classes. There are also competitive classes for children, local schools, WI and Young Farmers’ Clubs. Prize Schedules and entry forms will be available soon
