PictureHawkesbury Show attracts around 2,500 visitors each year. The main attraction is the large produce marquee, full of the biggest and best fruit, vegetables and flowers as well as crafts, home baking, wine, photographs and pictures.
Another key part of the show is the wonderful carnival procession that runs through the village and into the arena on the recreation ground. The beer tent is well stocked and there are plenty of stalls to browse. If its thrills you are after then the funfair is where you'll be headed with dodgems, waltzers and plenty more.
With entertainment in the central arena, fairground rides, a deer roast, beer tent, raffle, live music from a local silver band, archery displays and local crafts and produce stalls there is something for everyone. The popular carnival procession begins with the crowning of the carnival queen before travelling through the village to the Show Ground.
It attracts around 2,000 visitors each year and is held at the Village Hall and recreation ground, High Street, Hawkesbury Upton, GL9 1AU.
