The show attracts entries from the length and breadth of Ireland with classes to reflect the traditional agricultural strengths of Westmeath in pedigree and commercial cattle and sheep showing classes; sheep shearing classes, horse & pony showing classes, and show jumping, an old tradition of excellence. There will also be pony classes for special needs children.
Mullingar Agricultural Show attracts a very large entry in the poultry, horticulture, cookery, arts & crafts, photography and dog show events too. There will be a large area of outdoor & indoor trade stands, a food village, children's face painting and various displays and demonstrations throughout the day. Enjoy line dancing, step dancing, IWW Wrestling, cookery demonstrations, and live music.
A fantastic fashion show takes place in the afternoon with competitions throughout the day for Best Dressed Lady & Gentleman. The young people are not forgotten with a Stylish 12's competition!
The lighting of the Uisneach beacon fire was the signal for igniting fires on many hills across the whole island creating a unique ‘fire eye’ with Uisneach being the pupil. This heralded the coming of summer.
