The Devon County Show 2018 is on 17th, 18th and 19th May. Devon’s BIG Day Out is a hugely popular event held every year at Westpoint near Exeter. There are shows, contests, funfairs, food and drink galore and of course lots of shopping. Just try not to buy a huge tractor on the credit card (they can be very persuasive). The show is a very important showcase for farming and the county of Devon in general and this three day event receives a higher profile each year.
The Devon County Show attracts big crowds so try to get in early especially on Saturday when accompanied children can enter free of charge. Take some big shopping bags too as you might well find a bargain or two, and you will find it hard to resist the food and drink stalls. Our advice is get in and out early!
The main show will feature the Monster Trucks team this year. Big Pete and his friends will be out to squish a few hapless scrappage scheme victims. If you don’t like seeing needless cruelty to small hatchbacks, best to spend the time out shopping on the many excellent stalls. Westpoint is just off Junction 30 of the M5 by Exeter.
