About the event
The Lustleigh Village Show is a great, family day out at a traditional country show in the Dartmoor National Park.
Situated on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park in the picturesque Wrey Valley, Lustleigh is a quintessential English village where every August Bank Holiday Monday the villagers come together to host one of Devon’s most popular village shows.
For 2023 we have gathered an exceptional list of attractions, including Dangerous Steve juggling chainsaws, the Slackline School, a Climbing Wall and Circus into Schools amongst many many others.
The show has been held since 1887, and has been on its current site at Kelly Farm since 1947.
Over the years, the show has gone from strength to strength, growing from a simple produce and flower show, to adding a popular dog show, a 10k run, live bands, children’s sports, multiple attractions, dozens of stallholders, food and drink outlets featuring local produce and a Show Bar.
The Main Show and the Dog Show are located in fields surrounded by secure borders and arranged so that your family will feel safe at all times.
The Lustleigh Garden Society hold their own produce and flower show within the show grounds, which from its modest beginnings, is now a major event, attracting entries from far and wide.
The 10k run grew from a fun run (entrants dubbed it a not-so-fun-run) to a staple of the running calendar for local running clubs as well as pitting local village runners of all abilities against each other. It is an ARC registered 10k, run over a challenging multi-terrain course, over hilly lanes, stony tracks, muddy paths and pasture, in and around the village of Lustleigh.
The Dog Show has grown from modest beginnings to a size that now requires its own field and features 14 classes plus agility classes and a gundog scurry over three rings.
