Fulford Show will be going ahead this August after last year’s show had to be canceled because of Covid restrictions. The show, to be held from 1-5pm on Bank Holiday Monday, August 30, will be opened on the School Lane playing field by the Lord Mayor of York Cllr Chris Cullwick and the Lady Mayoress.
This August's show will see the return on the fun fair, children’s sports as well as the very popular Japanese drummers, Taiko Tengu. A new addition will be a fancy dress competition for children and a freecycle area where small unwanted items can be traded.
The show will be opened at 1pm by the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress who will then tour the showground until 2.30pm when they will finish with the judging of the fancy dress competition.
The children’s sports will then begin at 4pm, with traditional sack races and egg and spoon.
Gazebos and tables will not be provided this year, but pitches are free. To book a pitch visit fulfordshow.org.uk/bookings
Verna Cambell, Fulford Show Committee chair, commented:
"The show has been going for well over 100 years and is a key part of our local community expericence. This year's show will be a great opportunity to bring the community back together and have fun as well as raise money for some excellent causes."
Cllr Keith Aspden, Councillor for Fulford and Heslington, said:
“I am pleased to be working with the Fulford Show Committee once again to bring the Fulford Show back. I would encourage people to come along and enjoy the day, which supports many local charities. Whilst the ongoing pandemic saw last year's show unfortunately cancelled, the Committee is working hard to ensure we can enjoy the day safely. The hard work and dedication of the people involved is essential to what makes Fulford Show such a great event.”
