The Royal Cornwall Agricultural Association (RCAA) are the organisers of the Royal Cornwall Show. The RCAA was established in 1793, then named the Cornwall Agricultural Society, and had been a registered charity since 1926. The ‘Royal’ part was added in 1858 along with a Royal Patronage from Queen Victoria, with past patrons including King George VI, and Queen Elizabeth II. Founded in the historic town of Bodmin, the first event in September 1793 consisted of a ploughing match in Truro, the following year saw the first classes for livestock being introduced. The Show was based in Bodmin until around 1827, then Truro was it’s home until 1857, but after that the Show turned nomadic and alternated each year between east and west Cornwall. In 1960 the Show found it’s permanent home at the Showground in Wadebridge, where it remains until this day. The aims of the Association is to promote high standards in agriculture and to support Cornwall’s impressive agricultural industries and stimulate innovation and development.
